Amdas also offers free career advice to pupils. This includes, interviewing techniques, CV writing and general career advice. The aim is to make the journey from school to the world of work or higher education a smoother one.

“I have used Amdas’ services several times and found my consultant, Anwar, has been refreshingly different from most agents. Anwar has a good understanding of the practical needs of schools and assesses staff accurately. Nothing irritates me more than to be sold an ‘outstanding’ candidate who turns out to be far from it – Amdas have always been honest about the candidates they have and have sourced some exceptional candidates who I would not have found through adverts alone. As a Head teacher I am ever-wary of agencies however I can say that in terms of quality of candidates and customer service, Amdas have proved their worth to me.” Paul Jenkins | Head teacher | Court Moor School

Students’ comments

“I found the CV lesson very helpful as I have never had anyone talk to me about how to write a CV. I particularly found useful what topics you write down when we had to write down what we are good at.” A.

“AMDAS was a big help and I now feel confident enough to enter the world of work. Thank you!”

“I found it very helpful and I am confident with writing a CV. I especially found it helpful when we all discussed different things we’ve achieved and things we enjoy, and it gave me an idea of what to put on the CV.”

“The CV writing was very helpful as it helped me structure my own CV perfectly.”

“What went well: I found it helpful as I learnt how to lay out a CV. I know what it is useful for.
“Even better if: there was too much to cover in a short amount of time.”

“It was helpful because it gave you an idea about what you have to do when writing a CV, how to lay it out, and which important details need to be included like skills, hobbies and passions.
I think that it could have been more fun if they showed us some funny videos about CVs, and that would also give us a clearer idea.” R.

“I found the visit from AMDAS recruitment helpful in the sense of confirming my speculations on the ins and outs of a CV, as well as praising yourself in the personal statement.”
