  You’d think this question must be so old hat (pardon the pun) wouldn’t you? But it’s frequently posed to me & for those that it might help…here are my thoughts on it. Some contentious & some not. And there are NO hard & fast rules, but simply my overall observations. Firstly – before anything…STOP […]

So, yes, I won Chester SME Businesswoman of the Year 2013.

So there I was, in my pretty dress & with a few clients last Thursday at Bolesworth Castle. The names for the FInalists for SME Business of the Year were about to be read out. Hilariously someone on the table whispered ‘Get your best false grin on’….. And then a mad thing happened. Someone read […]

The Reluctant Entrepreneur. Not shrugging now am I?

The week before last I saw some Awards blurb for ‘Chester Businesswoman of the Year’ & I vaguely thought about entering them & nominating myself. A couple of clients mentioned it too. But I shelved it & thought I’d look into it if I had a ‘clear’ day….and the deadline crept closer & closer. And […]

My blogs are usually focussed on imparting advice & offering up comments on job hunting, but this one, if you’ll forgive me, is a little indulgent musing on something I’m starting to see creep in since late last year on the jobs market. In Liverpool & Chester. I’m getting super jobs in, but as I’m […]

What can happen when you circumvent the Recruiter….?

I choose to work with a certain type of candidate & believe me it works the other way. Candidates choose to use me. On speaking to me, reading my website & my blogs, it’s immediately evident I’m very different & don’t use the much over-used high street ‘recruiting’ speak from the outset, but I guess […]

Why bother giving feedback?

This blog is about a very real & current issue – it’s a ‘hot potato!’ Due to the position I’m in, I see the disappointment when candidates tell me yes, they went to that interview & no, there was no feedback. Rubbish. I & many other Agencies & employers see it as part & parcel […]

Candidates: when you apply for a job, be ready for a response!

Tenacity, speed & decisiveness – again – wins the day. Last month I placed some smashers & some I just knew I was going to place from the get go as I spotted them a mile off & they proved to be whizzy at getting back to me & responding. So once I’d found them […]
