Question: Why do I need to fill in the online template and I cannot send my CV in a word or pdf document?
Answer: In order to be able to search in our database (more than 2000 CV’s today) quickly, we need to be organized and maintain corporate design. Moreover, we need to comply with the requirements of our clients and ensure that we comply with ISO 9001-2008.

For example our client wants to have an inspector on an oil platform and the inspector needs to fly with a helicopter. We need to be sure that he has the right safety training (e.g. BOSIET or HUET training) in order to get on board of the helicopter or platform. With our database we can directly filter the candidates according to required certificates or training. One more reason to fill in your CV completely...
