The Five Steps of Interview Prep

You have perfected your CV, applied for your dream role and got invited to interview. Now what? 

Here’s the five steps of interview prep every candidate needs to know:

Business Owners: Your People Are Your Power

If your business is anything like mine; you started out alone. Then, in time, business got so busy you needed to take on help. In more time, you needed more help and the team grew and grew.

Are you burned out?

“When you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” 

Whilst we enjoy the sentiment, this old adage couldn’t be further from the truth. When you do what you love, it’s hard to know when to stop.

Salary Benchmarking – What is Average?

There is no hotter topic in recruitment. Salaries, salary benchmarking and finding that ever evolving ‘average’ salary. Yearly salary surveys are conducted throughout the industry to capture as much data as possible – but they don’t always tell the full story.

Flexible vs Remote

The global pandemic accelerated the ‘Workplace Digital Revolution’, with millions of us leaving the office in March 2020 and working remotely from the safety of our own homes. For many, this was a welcome step into a more flexible work life – but do you know the difference between flexible working and remote working?

Company Culture – What Is It and How Do You Shape It?

It’s a term that gets used a lot in recruitment. Company Culture.

But what does it mean? What is a company’s culture? How are cultures created? And what should candidates be looking out for?

What does your social media presence say about you?

Like most of modern life, recruitment has undergone a digital evolution in recent years. Gone are the days of phone calls or interviews, armed with nothing more than a CV or printed job description.
