WITH a recent survey revealing an increasingly casual approach to the workplace dress code, leading Aberdeen firm, Cammach Recruitment, is saying that business suits are still very much the order of the day when it comes to interviews.
Cammach Recruitment is noticing that, whilst there may be a trend towards more casual dress for work, many companies still want to see prospective candidates suited and booted for interviews.
“I think fewer and fewer people are now wearing suits to work, but that is after they have been through the interview process and know the dress code culture of their employer,” says Cammach Recruitment business development manager, Donna Liddle.
“A lot of candidates we meet don’t wear a suit but we would always suggest that they do so when going for a job interview, unless the company stipulates otherwise.”
Donna added: “Interviews aside, one client company once said to me that you should wear to work what your customers wear to work, and that is quite a common philosophy among the companies we deal with.
“There is the argument that in some cases a suit does not serve any real purpose for some jobs neither does it reflect an employee’s ability. So why are so many people required or encouraged to wear them?
“However, I think some people feel that wearing a suit generates an image of a certain stature or level of professionalism, and it can give people more confidence in their work as it is almost like putting on a suit of armour or assuming a professional persona.”
Cammach Recruitment – part of Cammach Group – operates independently and specialises in the recruitment of engineering personnel for onshore, offshore and overseas positions.
The company recruits in various disciplines including project and contract managers, engineers, and technicians and has a particularly strong record in placing business development personnel in the energy sector.
