We made it through January!

3rd February 2021 | Career AdviceJob HuntingMotivationalYourRecruit IT

We made it through January!  Quite frankly, we should all give ourselves a pat on the back for this – I know January’s are long, but really had no idea there were 248 days in January 2021.  However, we are now fully into February, the short month (pay day comes around quicker!) the month of love, the month of breaking New Year’s resolutions completely.

Happy New Year???

21st January 2021 | Career AdviceJob HuntingNews

I wonder how everyone is feeling about starting a New Year in full Lockdown again.  Roll back to the 23rd March last year we were just hearing about the word Lockdown and I think most of us were terrified.  Everything literally stopped overnight, staff prepared to work from home if their company still had any work to do, and thousands of us were put on Furlough Leave (a word I had never heard of).

How to get a pay rise and what to do if you don’t get it.

24th November 2020 | Career AdviceJob HuntingMotivational

Let’s face it, we all strive to get paid as much as possible and feel we are appreciated by our employer. When you first accept a job offer, some type of negotiation over salary and benefits would have taken place and normally by the agency representing you.   When we are negotiating for you, we will try to factor some sort of structure around a pay review which would normally be within 6 months of your start date.

Let’s face it, there are loads of recruitment agencies to choose from, 39,232 registered as trading in the UK to be precise. So how on earth do you choose the one you want to represent your company or your job search? Get it wrong and you will certainly regret it. Get it right and you will save time and money as a client and you will have more choices for job opportunities as a candidate.

Furlough Leave Versus job hunting

12th August 2020 | Career AdviceCorona virusCovid-19Job Hunting

Thousands of us have been in the unusual position of finding ourselves on Furlough leave for the last 3 or even 4 months. You may even be on Furlough leave until the end of October. Who would have ever thought this would ever be the case? Before the word ‘Furlough’ was announced by Rishi Sunak on the 20th March 2020, as a series of wide-ranging measures to assist businesses and employees through the COVID crisis, I, for one had never heard of the word. The word Furlough originated...

Lockdown and beyond….

16th June 2020 | Career AdviceCorona virusCovid-19Job HuntingMotivational

The last few months have been surreal for all sorts of reasons and at the start of March we watched many of our clients start to get itchy feet, put jobs on hold and cancel temporary bookings due to a virus we knew was coming our way but knew very little about. We sensed we would be in for a rough ride, just like 7 out of 10 businesses who had to take the difficult decision to Furlough their staff. All of our Consultants say that recruitment is in their blood and they love their days...
