Open your business to flexible talent…

by Sinead Hasson November 22nd, 2018

I don’t think it’s a war so much as a constant battle. All businesses (ours included) need to continuously maintain a pipeline of talent. You never know when disaster/resignations might occur, or when you win a big piece of business and need a bigger team to support the new client. So it is best practice […]

As a dad to a nine-year old, year five girl, I am at the daunting stage of her life, when as parents we are starting to look at secondary schools.  We are a long way off from making any decision and I am sure we will still be undecided when we need to start thinking […]


Mindless job applications

by Alex Giurgiu September 26th, 2018

The days in which people need a job, any job, are over. So why, as candidates, do we still act like we need to apply to all the available job postings? I’m sure all recruiters/employers here have had mindless job applications from smart and educated candidates with great experience, but totally unsuitable to the role […]


The part timer

You’re sat on the tube. How likely are you to give your seat up for a disabled person? An elderly person? A pregnant person? “Me?” I hear you say, “Of course I would!” Well let’s rephrase that. How likely are you to notice someone who is in need of seat? Because actually, most people will […]

by Catherine Vaughan July 20th, 2018

2018 has been a frenetic year at Hasson Associates – the market this Summer has been as hot as the weather – and the heatwave doesn’t look to be ending any time soon! With so much demand for qualified candidates and so much choice for those, particularly at junior – mid level, it’s incredibly challenging […]


It’s more than hashtags… it’s about action.

by Sinead Hasson June 21st, 2018

The current conversation around diversity and inclusion is getting louder and louder – it’s in everyday media, marketing, and news. Its been talked about in the boardroom, the kitchen, and probably in the pub on a Friday after work. Could there be a danger that we stop hearing it? I worry that we will stop […]


Sleep your way to the top!

by Charles Moore June 11th, 2018

What do Churchill, Einstein, JFK and Aristotle all have in common? Besides all being highly successful in their chosen careers, they all practised micro napping, grabbing a cheeky 40 winks during the working day.  Churchill claimed that it helped him get twice as much done each day and Einstein used his micro naps to top […]


Moving to The Netherlands

by Alex Giurgiu June 7th, 2018

  Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague – great cities in a beautiful country. Famous for tulips, cycling, great beer, a laid back culture, and a short distance from the UK and most major European countries. You may have considered visiting for a weekend but have you ever thought about a more permanent move? Here’s why: Career opportunities […]
