6 Reasons Why Your Commute Doesn't Have To Drive You Crazy

Summer might have finally reared it's head again this week, gifting us a mini-heatwave. Heatwaves like it can take you back to a time or place like a past holiday, or your youth. All great right? Though for me, as well as these, it evokes memories of the District Line at 8am in the morning on a sticky Summer's day, desperate to finally get to work. Thankfully those days are long gone and it got me thinking about all the reasons I don't miss the commute into the city. If you grew up in London, it probably feels like a lifetime that you’ve spent navigating cancellations, body odour,  and giving up any sort of hope of a seat. If not, you probably moved to the big smoke bright-eyed,...

Telephone Interview Top Tips

Top Tips for a Successful Telephone Interview So, you have secured yourself a telephone interview. Believe it or not, an interview over the phone is just as important as a face to face one, and you will have to work just as hard (if not harder) to impress the interviewer. Although many people realise the importance of properly preparing for an ‘in person’ interview, very often they neglect to place the same importance on those conducted over the phone. This is the first of a number of mistakes potential employees make and it can really put them at a disadvantage in the face of strong competition. So what can you do to ensure you make a good impression in a telephone...

Handling-counter-job-offers

If you are offered a pay rise in response to handing in your resignation, we would advise you to proceed with caution. It can be easy to be enticed by the money, be wooed by your manger's flattery and comforted by the familiarity of what you know but before you accept the payrise and agree to stay, we recommend you consider the following – 1.     Why did you want to leave in the first place? If you were feeling undervalued, frustrated or keen for a new challenge these things are not likely to change. 2.     Why did it take a resignation to prompt the pay rise? If it’s about money, are you going to have to go through this drama every time you want a pay rise?...

Want to know more about how we could help you?

We’re always keen to hear from potential new candidates, clients or future employees
