13th January 2020 | Career AdviceMotivational

As we say farewell to 2019 and HELLO to 2020, it is no secret that this time of the year is the busiest and is one of the best times to find a new job – if our most loved Harry and Meghan can do it the world is surely your oyster!! Last year was a busy time for us at YourRecruit as we placed a record numbers of candidates into new positions and there is no sign of the market slowing down in 2020, in fact quite the opposite. As candidates look for new opportunities and Employers...

Prepare for January blues…set your sights on a £250 Amazon Voucher*

20th November 2018 | Career AdviceMotivationalNewsRecruitingYourRecruit IT

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…

13th November 2018 | MotivationalNewsRecruitingYourRecruit IT

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.

12th November 2018 | Career AdviceMotivational

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,...

Some thoughts on midlife career change and women

6th March 2018 | Career AdviceMotivational

Happy 8th March, International Women’s Day! As a women-owned business at YourRecruit Group, we're marking the day by talking to three amazing women, who work in entirely different fields and pursue diverse goals. Regardless of all the differences, Saboohi Famili, Teresa Leyman and Gill Thorpe, all share a prominent value; drive to succeed! With increasingly distant retirement age, midlife women (and men) in the UK have one to two decades of working life in front of them. This fact on its...
