If You’re Gonna Do It, Do It Right!

This week is a first. I’ve recruited for 25yrs & yesterday I offered a job to a candidate & the subsequent offer of employment letter I was copied into knocked me off my feet. It was generous, warm, amusing & cooperative. It was more than a statement of fact….it was a truly ‘welcome to the […]

The Hanging Around Bit

So you’ve got the job spec, you’ve submitted the candidates, the interviews have gone really well & your client loves one particular candidate & we’ve given over that indication as we were instructed to. They want the job too…& its all systems go & then….it goes dark…. This gap, this halt, this stumble is one […]

Was it me…..?

Forgive me for going all truthful & non ‘Recruity’ on you but today has really taken me aback. Today (after 27yrs of doing this job & of course I’ve had disappointments along the way) I was let down by a candidate that I thought was the most perfect, friendly warm & most of all good […]

Why book an expensive long-term Temp? Case Study Blog

This is a Blog based on a client of ours & the actual situation. I think it demonstrates well another aspect of recruiting & why employers book & sometimes need temporary cover. Most employers think booking a Temp is a desperate, short term & expensive act & to be fair, in many circumstances they’re right. Examples: […]

What Goes Around…..

I’ve just placed a shrieking, happy, interested & capable candidate into one of my favourite clients. She was also the youngest & the most inexperienced that attended interview. She did her homework & took nothing for granted & got the job. And it’s given me a particularly fine buzz. But I fill jobs all the […]

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 […]
