How to Contact us

Please go to our Contact Page and fill out the form, or call us on 0207 101 9229 or alternatively email auria@orielpartners.co.uk or olivia@orielpartners.co.uk. We would love to hear from you. If you are interested in a particular vacancy advertised on SecsintheCity please apply directly via their website.

How much does it cost?

Nothing if you are the candidate.

We work on a contingency basis with our Clients and therefore no cost is charged unless we successfully find you a candidate. This will be a percentage of a year’s salary, and is a one off fee for permanent candidates. For our contract/temporary candidates you will be charged an hourly rate. Please contact us for our TOBs.

Do you offer any kind of Refund System if things don’t work out?

Yes, for up to the first 3 months of employment, although we are confident that this won’t be needed!

How to register with us?

Once we have received your CV, either by your SecsintheCity application or directly via our website, a Consultant will go through your experience and skill set and will contact you if we believe that we can help. At this stage a time will be agreed with you to come in and meet with as many of our team as possible and roles will be discussed at this stage, or if not applicable, advice will be given. Please do note that sadly due to the high volume of CVs received we are unable to get back to everyone.

What should I wear and bring with me when I come in to register?

Although our first meeting is a fairly informal 30 minute chat, first impressions do count and we would advise you to be smartly presented. Please do make sure you are punctual and have brought along your passport and any relevant certificates and references.

Will I be tested on my computer skills?

You may be tested and this will depend on what role you are applying for. This will not take place at our office and will be sent to you for you to do online.

What can I as a Candidate expect from you?

We want to be part of your career journey and help you with either your important first London role or the next step of your career. We can offer advice at every stage and our aim is to build up a strong relationship with you that lasts for many years. We can help with CVs, interview preparation, give market advice and company insight, help with salary rises and assist with any general work related issues that might come up.

How can I keep updated on new job opportunities?

When we take on a new role we sit down with our team and personally discuss each candidate’s suitability for the role and will contact you via mobile or email if we feel that we can get you an interview with the client.

We advertise all our roles on SecintheCity and are also very active on our social media accounts so for job updates it's well worth following us on Instagram and LinkedIn.
