At YourRecruit IT, we love Christmas. The Christmas tree is up. The advent calendars are in position. The party outfits are hanging in wait. We savour every moment. However, we know what happens post Christmas. January blues are not a joke or click bait. In fact, they are the reality of many people across the UK. Therefore, practising self-care is extremely important. What is self-care? Self-care is the practice of looking after oneself. Often, January 1st sparks new diets, new fitness...

So tell me what you want, what you really, really want…

This week saw the reawakening of nineties kids all over the world, to the sound of a zig-a-zig-ah. Between 1000 and 1030 on Saturday morning, thousands of Spice Girls fans frantically refreshed their internet browsers in order to secure arena tickets for a reunion tour.  I did not acquire said tickets, but there is always hope. So tell me what you want, what you really, really want... Throughout the months of September and October, our clients completed a survey detailing their preferences...

Maybe she’s born with it… maybe she’s just spent a really long time honing her skills and has avoided procrastination like it’s a poison.

Not really as snappy or catchy as the well-known tagline we could all probably sing, but it's truthful nonetheless. And it becomes more evident the more candidates we place and the more colleagues we work alongside. I'm sorry to break it to you, but you either have it or you don't. However, there's no need to be completely fatalistic because lots of recent research suggests that if you don't have it, there are a number of things you can do to develop it. But, what is "it"? I have been...

Hey, how are you?

9th October 2018 | Meet the TeamMotivationalNewsRecruitingYourRecruit IT

It is not a question that breaks the rules or shocks an audience; in fact it is just a simple question that many people ask, and hear, most days. However, have you really thought about its impact? It’s funny, because sometimes you take for granted that “how are you?” and it is only when it is absent that you start to realise the import of such a phrase. The reason I say this is because last week, a selection of our Consultants went to the IP EXPO Europe at the Excel London. We had...

Why have we been channelling Ross from Friends this past week?

1st October 2018 | Meet the TeamMotivationalUpdates

"Pivot, pivot, PIVOT" We all remember that episode of Friends, where Ross and Chandler were manoeuvring a large sofa down the apartment block's stairs, whilst Rachel coolly assisted. However, she soon idly stepped away when the instructions became a bit too...real. The word "pivot" never had the same meaning again. It was a bit like that on Friday. Despite only moving down a floor and along an - albeit labyrinthine - corridor, the pressure was on. Crates of computers, telephones,...

Recruitment Agencies: Have your say, but hear ours first!

14th September 2018 | CompetitionsRecruiting

More than just an unsolicited phone call, more than just a meme; we are actually a pretty efficient team. Let’s not beat around the bush, recruitment agencies are up there with estate agents. Many find us persistent and relentless, annoying and not forgetting pointless. But, remember that, actually, we provide – just like estate agents – an invaluable service. You need to sell your house, can you do that alone? You need to recruit the crème de la crème, the experienced, and the...

First came the referendum, then came the furore, and now comes questions…lots of them.

  What does Brexit mean for the recruitment industry? What will happen to free movement? What does post-Brexit look like for EU nationals? Free Movement The existing free movement of EU nationals means that the bank of candidates on offer to agencies is expansive, almost endless. In fact, the skills that the entire EU offer ensure that no recruiter is left scratching their head looking for the right candidate – they will be there. However, as the government has now...
