true cost of wrong hire

Frankly, I'm staggered by the number of business owners and hiring managers who complain about their salespeople ... when they were usually the fools who hired them in the first place. Bad salespeople in your organisation are a symptom of management problems; bad management is the primary cause, and the problems start with bad recruitment. And bad recruitment is heart-stoppingly expensive. Read on and discover why a bad sales hire can cost you as much as 30 to 125 times the basic salary you pay the salesperson who doesn't work out in your role. I'm not even going to trouble you with the calculation of what a bad sales management hire can cost you. I repeat, 30 to 125 times base...

Talent Managers Using Agencies

Adam Reynolds is a talent manager and group head of recruitment at Host Europe Group, Europe's leading web hosting business. As well as managing the talent pipeline at HEG, he's also an avid blogger and all round recruiting geek. Combining all of these elements he's kindly written a guest blog below.   One of the things I love most about social platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter is the opportunity to listen to what my peer group has to say about their role in recruitment. In particular, I enjoy listening to ex-agency recruiters turned in-house recruiters discuss how they will “go it alone” with a “who needs an agency” type maverick attitude. This is archetypal...

contract developer jobs

The life of a developer contractor comes with superior earning potential than that of a permanent employee, and other perks such as flexible hours, and being your own boss. These benefits often compensate the potential negatives, namely; the lack of a regular stable income, and job security.   Whilst some contractors develop excellent relationships with specific clients, the uncertainty about where the next contract developer opportunity is coming from often still remains. One way to counter this is to use a contract developer recruiter, which not only can ensure that you are able to pick up contract opportunities steadily, but also brings a range of benefits with it. I’ve...

Sitecore Jobs 2016

It’s a new year, and what better time to take a look at what 2016 has in store for the Sitecore job market, and how Sitecore compares to other .Net WCMS platforms in regards to better prospects for its community of developers, and clients. Since its release, Sitecore has continued to go from strength to strength, with utilisation amongst organisations globally increasing year-on-year. This growth has naturally transferred to the Sitecore job market, particularly after the release of the anticipated Sitecore 8.

all you need to know about Perl 6

The annual London Perl Workshop took place on Saturday, gracing us with the theme of a Perl Christmas. The event was dedicated to a special arrival underneath the Christmas tree this year: the arrival of Perl 6! With that in mind, we asked experienced Perl Programmer and regular contributor at events such as YAPC, LPW, the Dutch Perl Workshop, and more, Steve Mynott, some questions on the introduction of Perl 6 and the key points you need to know about its release. How is Perl 6 different from Perl 5? Perl 6 is a different computer language to Perl 5 but a member of the same Perl family of languages sharing the same original author Larry Wall.  They are similar in many ways; both are...

London Perl Mongers at Eligo

Last night, Eligo were proud to host the London Perl Mongers November meet-up at our Wimbledon offices. Unable to find a location for their Perl Monger meet-up, we were more than happy to host, with it proving to be a great night for all! With Perl mongers travelling from all over London including attendees from as far afield as Hackney, it was great to see such a healthy attendance. The meet-up included a wide range of talks, providing both insight and laughs! With a couple of last minute changes to the speaking roster, we were delighted to hear speakers discuss topics ranging from Open Source Security and HTTP Cookies, to Programming Taboos Illustrated, Electronics, and a feature on...

employer brand attracting developers company branding

You’re a great company, really, you are. You should be attracting some excellent talent; sure, there’s a shortage of developers, particularly Perl, Ruby, Java etc., but that’s all the more reason why the talent that there is should be working for you. So you’re not quite Google, or Facebook, or [insert one of any other well-known tech brand's here], maybe you are: it’s still possible. Read any advice on attracting talent and, you’ll be told the first step is to look at your employer brand, and it is, as long as you understand that this is more than your logo, a foosball table in the office, or even free fruit on Fridays. Looking at your employer brand requires you to step...

Developer Recruitment

Download our Developer CV Template here! As specialists in open source development recruitment we often get asked by our candidates, “How can I stand out to get the developer job I want”? I always explain that the best place to start is to think of yourself as a brand that you are marketing. To do this, ask yourself some key questions –  What sort of reputation do I have in the industry? What do I offer in terms of expertise? What are my strengths? What am I passionate about? What are my aspirations for the future? How do I want to be known? The answers to all of these will give you an idea as to the nature of your own personal brand. You then need to ask...
