Self belief & an open mind. Crucial for the employer & employee

Last month we placed a really unusual candidate from a very unusual background in an unusual job. (Hopefully it won’t be the first time we place in this unusual job! 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 […]
