Check the date you turnip. If you’re at the edge of sanity and pondering a life treading the cobbles, don’t throw it all away just yet. There’s a job for you here.
Here are three facts that may shock you: 1. A mobile phone lets you take calls anywhere. 2. A laptop lets you access computer documents anywhere. 3. Wi-Fi lets you access the internet anywhere. What’s that? That’s all pretty common knowledge? Then why are you chained to your desk all day every day?
Chances are, you’re reading this in an office. Most of our days are spent in an office. And working in recruitment, you’re more likely to have a boss who sees the link between ‘time at desk’ and ‘success’ as inextricable. It’s not obviously.
You may be reading this at your desk. Maybe on the treadmill at lunch. Perhaps while your kids are busy redecorating the living room with crayons. Absolutely loving life. And on top of that, your to-do list’s getting longer than your bucket list. But your job doesn’t have to hold you back. Recruitment’s a line of work in which seeing the world isn’t just a nice to have. But a very real possibility.
Equity can look like a fantastic deal, and in many cases it is. But it can equally be quite a complex subject that needs research before you accept any offer put in front of you.
It takes great leadership to create longevity in recruitment. You need support and guidance. People around you who’ve been there and done it. A leadership team that inspires resilience. Those who get it right can survive market changes, financial downfalls and economic uncertainty.
Wellbeing often gets neglected in your search for a new job. It’s something you might consider as a secondary thought to commission schemes, great leadership team or previous market success.
But a company offering support in wellbeing is one which thinks about their culture. It’s about creating a supportive culture which gives staff a better chance of handling the stresses of the job.
Core values. Empty promises that look good written on the wall? Or the key to unlocking a new level of retention – and all the revenue that comes with it? Do you care either way?
It’s often assumed the bigger you are as a business, the better you are. That’s far from the reality of the modern day recruitment world, where smaller more agile businesses are staking a claim for your next career move.
There’s an argument in some circles, that dressing down the rules on office attire should be deemed less professional. None of those people have ever been to a client meeting where they’re the only one in a suit. And this will happen more and more as the working world relaxes their dress code.
