Ikon strongly suggests that candidates continue with their work while processing their documents. However, we follow a strict timeline for processing your medical examination, submission of documents, etc. Ikon will be with you every step of the way and will work with you to ensure timely submission of requirements but there should be no delays on your part.
You may also need to render your resignation in advance, if you have a notice period, so as not to delay your deployment.

One possibility is that your profile hasn’t matched up with our current vacancies. You will hear back from us as soon as we have a suitable opening. Updating your profile regularly is a good idea, as this will help us match and shortlist you for the right job.
- How much will Ikon charge me for their services? Back to Top
