When there’s nothing more I can do……

I’ve placed so many candidates in 25yrs of recruiting. So many. And I take pride in believing I take the time & the effort to prep my candidates brilliantly. I know my clients so I can, to a degree, anticipate the kind of interview they’ll get & I know they aren’t walking into nightmare scenarios […]

The Cover Letter. Worth the bother or not?

This week I received the best cover letter to a CV I’ve ever had. And as I’ve recruited for years, I feel pretty qualified to say that. And it made me think. Of all the CV’s I get, how many do cover letters (when I say cover letters I mean emailed docs that come with […]

Keep Calm. Its only your new job!

Be kind to yourself. Everyone has new job nerves! I’ve placed 100’s of candidates over the years (possibly 1000’s dare I say) & one of my most frequent conversations, especially with younger candidates, is that they MUST give themselves the time & the space in their new job role time to settle in, to adapt […]

Just how hard is it to break out of making a bad job decision?

I placed a candidate this month who’d had a steady general office admin job for 8 years. Very poorly paid (on minimum wage for all that time & only moved up as she’d hit 21) & had taken what she felt was the right move, into a completely different working arena. Her thought process was […]

Does your application & CV pass the ‘Yeah & So What’ test?

If you’ve ever been in sales or customer services you might know this test. Tell your prospective customer a fact & if it’s totally irrelevant, it won’t pass the ‘yeah & so what test’. So try & sell a car to a Mum or Dad with 4 kids & keep telling them about the top […]

First rule of job applications: perfect spelling, English & grammar

We recruit for all sorts of jobs: in the main admin / accounts & office support but we also love the odd quirky job & do a fantastic job with Motorbikes & Biomass engineers. The whole process isn’t really very different as long as you take the time to understand the clients & the differing […]

Tenacity often WINS the day.

Tenacity, Speed & decisiveness – again – wins the day. This year has been a BELTER. We’ve placed some smashers & some placed fast & easily as they were spotted a mile off & they were whizzy at getting back to us & responding. So once found, it was ‘all systems go’. I’ll bet we […]

Had a January setback? Try & see it as a positive

This last month it’s fair to say there’s been an unfortunate run of Temp bookings that have come in (as always with Temp work) on ‘the last minute’ & interested parties have been rang, references gone for & candidates pleased they’ve secured something, got all ready for day one…..& then the temp job has been […]

Not all Recruiters are the same!

Lately I’ve seen a little upturn in the trend for ‘Recruiter / Agency bashing’ online & I just wanted to stick up a little for us here. Recruiting is a strangely hard job. I admit it’s not coalmining nor building houses in Siberia; but it’s so hard to please all parties & demands a delicate […]

Second choice? Could it ever be as good as first?

So the jobs market is now starting to really move. We’re seeing good candidates get snapped up & some very quickly.  They flag up they’re ‘on market’ they fulfill a rarer skillset (payroll is one skill just like that). They get an interview quickly, get the job & in the ensuing flurry, this can sometimes […]
