The FAQsHow do I join?
1. HOW DO YOU DECIDE IF I AM THE RIGHT FIT FOR MOVEMEON?

To join our consulting community you must have consulting experience gained either from a recognised strategy or management consultancy, or in-house. To join our accounting community, you must have gained a recognised UK accounting qualification, or be in the process of completing such a course. We ask you to tell us where you gained your consulting experience, or where you completed your accounting qualification. Once we verify this information, you will be given access to the relevant exclusive community.

2. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY REGISTRATION TO GET VALIDATED?

We aim to validate all registrations within 2-3 days, if not sooner. If your background does not meet our requirements, you will receive a message from our team.

3. WHAT IS A PROFILE AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

You should think of your profile as a mini-CV. It is another chance to market yourself to employers, so should include: your current job title, company, industry and any relevant previous experience you wish to highlight.

Writing a couple of sentences about what roles/companies you are interested in is a powerful way of attracting employers’ attention, and also means you won’t be contacted about opportunities you aren’t interested in. So if you are keen to land a role in a start-up, for example, get this across in your profile narrative.

4. CAN MY EMPLOYER SEE MY PROFILE?

Employers can see an anonymous summary of your profile. This is so that potential future employers can invite you to apply for their roles. The more detail you put in your profile, the more this helps employers, and the more relevant your targeted invites will be.

5. HOW DO I MANAGE HOW MANY JOB ALERTS I GET?

We send you job alerts based on the preferences you set when completing your registration and profile. You can be as broad or as specific as you like with your preferences, but the more specific you are, the fewer job alerts you will receive.

You can manage all of your preferences and alerts by logging in to your account and selecting the “what you are looking for” tab. It is a good idea to update your preferences and profile every time you start a new job, so that we can keep you informed of opportunities relevant to your career progression.

6. WHAT PROPORTION OF ROLES REQUIRES EU/UK WORK AUTHORISATION?

London is our key city hub, so there is a high chance you will need the right to work in the UK. Sometimes employers can support you in gaining that right: job descriptions will always state whether sponsorship is available, on all roles, even outside the UK/EU.
