Job Search FAQs
Q: How do I access my jobseeker account on BGC Group?
To be able to access your jobseeker account to apply for new job listings on BGC, please make sure that you have an account with a verified email address with BGC.
To view your job applications and adjust your job alert settings via your jobseeker dashboard, click on the login/register button > jobseekers.
Q: What is a 'resume drop'?
BGC's resume drop or the quick 'upload cv' feature is used by job seekers who wish for our recruitment specialists to get in touch with them whenever an awesome job vacancy relevant to their profile comes up.
Please note that a jobseeker account will not be automatically created for you using this feature.
Q: How much will it cost for me to find a job through BGC?
There are zero “hidden costs” for candidates and clients alike when it comes to using the help and services of specialist recruiters at BGC Group. In fact, our recruiters have your best interests since we have ceased operating on a commission-based scheme since 2017.
Our recruitment consultants will not receive a cut of your pay. However, you will have to note that this may still be a common practice used by other recruiters in our industry in order to stay competitive and maintain low employer costs. This results in poor candidate prospects and high turnover due to bad job matching. BGC believes that whenever high stakes commissions are at play, both candidates and employers end up with a shorter end of the bargain.
Our success is very much dependent on establishing strong, long-term relationships with our employers, whose success is based on your job longevity. What this essentially means is that our candidates are getting great service for free!
Also, here's why you should let BGC help you with your job search.

Once we have a keener understanding of your candidate requirements and received a sign-off on our mutual service agreement, the team seeks to have qualified profiles sent to you as soon as 3 days.
Clients looking to fill senior/niche positions typically start receiving suitable profiles from our account managers in a week or so.
On a case review basis, our specialists may offer you test profiles before requiring the service agreement, just to be clear on our understanding of any niche requirements.

Q: Will there be a guarantee period for candidates successfully hired with BGC's help?
We have a performance guarantee clause in our service agreement to ensure that BGC works in the best interests of both candidates and clients.
Should our candidates resign prematurely or fail to meet reasonable job expectations during the guarantee period, we will provide the client with a free replacement hire.
However, there are fair exceptions to our replacement/refunds policy. Our policy does not cover cases in which candidate termination or redundancy are due to reasons unrelated to candidate performance/misconduct.
For any clarifications on the guarantee, we recommend you get in touch with your account manager soonest.
