Managing Expectations: At Mindfield we are driven by mutually agreed KPIs and service levels.

Sometimes positions take time to close and there could be delay in us responding to you but as a thumb rule if you do not hear from us in 7-8 working days post applying for the role then the resume has not been shortlisted and would be kept on the database for other roles.
