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 […]

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 […]

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).

As we placed successfully we’ll be expecting more business) but the circumstances of how & why we filled the job…& who with, is the reason […]

I got a call last week from one of my Liverpool clients wanting 2 Legal Secretaries, but with a particular focus on ones that knew a little about archiving. I called 2 great candidates & though neither were experts on Archiving, they’re working away & all […]
