Insight & ideas

15 Months ago I embarked on my Marketing placement year and to be honest with you I had no idea what to expect. With the recruitment industry having so much emphasis on digital marketing, I was well out of my depth.
Let’s be honest, hiring can be a tedious process. With the unemployment rate in the UK at 4.1% (as of Jan 2018), employers have to compete for high-quality employees. In order to find and attract quality candidates, it requires work from recruiters and companies alike.
In today’s job market, employers are actively seeking candidates with more than just a suitable skill set. More than three-quarters of hiring managers have said a candidate’s personality matters just as much as their professional experiences.
Now we’re well into 2018, the government has changed legislation that will shape the HR and the secretarial job market. From changes in the minimum wage to the gender pay gap, 2018 is set to change the way that HR functions operate. This blog identifies changes in legislation over the first half of 2018.
It’s finally the day of your job interview, you’ve picked out the dress to impress, practiced plenty of questions in front of the mirror and figured out your route in.
After you’ve blitzed the interview, you receive a call: You’ve landed the job! But it’s now the night before your first day. We’ve all been there, all the small and unnecessary questions that nag us and keep us up all night. You have to figure out, where’s the office again? How do I actually get into the office?
