Q1. How do I apply?
A. Please apply by emailing your CV as a

consultant. This is essential in view of the large volume
of vacancies and profiles we receive.

computer viruses, we are not able to send an auto responder.
We therefore advise you to use the email option "request
a delivery receipt for this message" when sending the
email, so that you will know that your email has been received
Q3. Should I follow up with you regarding my application?
A. No. If you are short listed for the position
you have applied for, you will be contacted and given an appointment
to meet one of ELGIVA Specialist Consultants/Interviewers.
If you don't receive a response from us within two weeks of

contact you to make the arrangements.
