Tune in, then turn off…

by Sinead Hasson July 19th, 2021

‘Hi, I’m sorry I can’t come in today but I’m not feeling very well’. This is a call we’ve all had to make at some point in our lives. It’s not a ‘duvet day’ or a ‘me day’ it’s a ‘I’m genuinely really not very well and can’t (and shouldn’t) come into the office day’. […]


What did we learn…?

by Sinead Hasson July 12th, 2021

Well, its not quite coming home. It’s the morning after the night before and, lets face it if you’re an England fan, you probably woke up to a sense of disappointment that we’re not champions of Europe. When we think about it a little more, we take pride in such an incredible team of young […]


Gone in 60 seconds…

by Sinead Hasson June 15th, 2021

That’s what it felt like, last March when The Prime Minister addressed the nation, advising the UK’s workforce to stay at home and I closed the door on our central London office. Cajoling the staff at a time of immense worry for everyone, ‘it’ll be over in a few weeks, don’t worry we’ll be back […]


Strange times in the job-hunting world!

by Sinead Hasson May 18th, 2021

Video interviews are now the norm and people can have 3 or 4 before a decision is made. One of the things we have spoken about over and over as a team, is the challenge of working out if a company is right for you based on a series of video calls. You can’t see […]

Keeping focussed on your career goals

by Sinead Hasson January 28th, 2021

Is standing still really an option? January 2021 has been one of the busiest months we have had in recruitment in a while in terms of requirements from our clients. Normally it’s a slow start in January picking up towards the end of the month – this year with no holidays to speak of, the […]


Thank you

by Sinead Hasson December 22nd, 2020

Normally at the end of every year we write a blog. We talk about the key trends, what we have seen and what we expect from the year ahead. Given the uniqueness of this year I thought I would take the opportunity to thank those people who have been involved in our story this year. […]

(Definitely no more than 3 pages). Check and check again for any typos or spelling mistakes and get a second […]


Turning a negative into a positive

by Anna Foster October 14th, 2020

It’s been a challenging year for job seekers and this week we asked some of our regular contractors about their experiences during the 2020 lockdown.
