Issue 15 – May 2013

Ruella CrouchWelcome to this months newsletter

For the first time we’ve produced our newsletter in a digital format, so we’d appreciate your feedback as it’s important to us that you to find the content worthwhile, meaningful and informative, particularly as I’m so aware of how many emails we all receive on a daily basis.
Despite the changeable weather and challenging market conditions we’re feeling very positive. Since January, we’ve been inundated with roles from our high profile client base as well as being approached by a significant number of new clients. What’s interesting to see is the increase in roles at the entry/junior end of the market, the improvement in terms of speed of response and time to hire, the increase in the number of warm/hot desks on offer and the return of significant guarantees.

If you would like to review the roles we are currently recruiting for please click here. Please do refer any friends who may be looking and ask them to contact us for a confidential discussion about their career. As a thank you we’ve enhanced our referral bonus even further. For the month of May we’re paying referral fees of up to £600 and giving you the opportunity of winning an iPad mini!! Click here.

On that positive note, I’d like to introduce our newest team member Nicola Jennings; Nicola is an extremely accomplished recruiter with a breadth of experience within the UK and Internationally. Nicola, who joined us during the Summer of 2012, has recently been promoted to manage our Graduate/Entry level division and is responsible for placing candidates with 0-12 months recruitment experience across a range of disciplines.
