    🌟 It’s #learningatworkweek! 🌟 

Here at Intelligent People we’ve been planning a few great activities, including today’s #learning lunch 🥗 🥪

Each team member presented something they had learned in the workplace. We learned about SEO, #culture, how to spec a candidate, candidate management, and much more! 

We’re invested in developing our people to be their very best at work, and that means providing a working culture where learning is engrained into our day-to-day roles, where mistakes are learning opportunities, and where professional development through formal and informal training is a priority. 

#worklife #hiringApril is #nationalvolunteermonth! 

Here at @ipeoplerec we’ve been busy helping out our local community by organising a team litter pick along the Alban Way. We collected three bin bags full of litter over two hours and all enjoyed getting some fresh air and time away from our desks! ☀️🦋🐝🌿

As April is also #stressawarenessmonth we’ve been highlighting the importance of taking time out of our busy days to get out in nature 🌳getting some exercise 🏃and giving our eyes a needed break away from our screens 👀

We all had a lot of fun and are looking forward to future events and ways we can #giveback to our local community! 

Interested in working with us? We’re hiring! DM us for more information or submit a CV via our website! 

#volunteering #team #hiringWe are very excited to announce that we have two new Researchers joining us at the start of next week! 🎉🎉

We had an amazing first quarter and are storming ahead into our second quarter, and with business booming we are excited to recruit a couple more Researchers alongside a number of experienced Recruitment Consultants. 

If you're open to a new opportunity and think you have what it takes to be a great recruiter, please submit your CV via our website and we'll get back to you within a couple of days.Last Friday we had our Q1 Incentive day out in #london ☀️ we had an amazing day enjoying the city in the warm spring sun! 

We spent the day exploring the cobbled old streets of the old City of London 🏙, marvelled at the gorgeous view from the #skygarden 🌸🌺🌼, sampled a few delicious Oysters at lunch 🦪 and things got competitive at crazy golf @swingersldn 🏌️finally we topped it all off with a fine dining experience at @gauchogroup 

Many thanks to @ipeoplerec for the smashing day out to celebrate our hard work and success last quarter! 

#incentive #recruitment #teamdayWho else is enjoying this beautiful weather?! 🌞😎🌸🌷

We're making the most of the sunshine today at Intelligent People by taking advantage of our offices overlooking the lovely Clarence Park - did someone say picnic and ice-cream? 
For all our colleagues working remotely, we hope you can get out in the garden or out for a lunchtime walk to absorb some well-needed Vitamin D too! 

With summer very much on its way, we encourage our employees to make the most of their days off - we offer a generous package of 28 days holiday plus bank holidays (increasing with years of service up to 33 days), so there's plenty of time to book in some fun summer days and get exploring! 

#spring #worklifebalance #hiringIt's #internationalwomensday and here at Intelligent People our team have been pledging to #breakthebias and support women's equality in the workplace. ♀️

We're proud to have a strong female presence in our company with an almost 50:50 gender split between our employees, and we're also proudly committed to paying our employees equally, regardless of gender. 

#workplace #equality #womenToday is #employeeappreciationday and we're marking the occasion with a fruit basket full of healthy snacks delivered directly to the homes of our hardworking colleagues. 🍎🍇🍌🍐

We couldn't be prouder of the work they do and everything they have achieved over the past couple of years. 👏

Keep up the good work team! 💪💪

#team #employeeappreciation #employeeexperience #people #recruitmentMore candidates than ever are looking for a job that offers #flexibleworking but with flexibility meaning different things across different companies, what does it really mean?

Here at Intelligent People, we are proud to incorporate flexible working as part of our core benefits package for all employees. 

✔️ Hybrid working arrangements mean you get the best of both worlds, with any three days per week in our amazing St Albans office and two days from the comfort of your own home!

✔️ We recognise that some days you may need to attend an appointment or maybe just want that extra half hour in bed, so we operate a flexi-hours policy with core hours between 10am and 4pm, and the choice to work flexibly around those hours.

✔️ Taking breaks is so important for productivity and engagement at work, which is why we allow 90 minutes for your lunch break. This means that you can have a proper chance to relax, take a stroll around beautiful Clarence park opposite our offices, or treat yourself at a local food establishment without the rush! 

💭 Sounds interesting? 

We're on the lookout for new talent to join our amazing team, so if you'd like to work for a company that embraces flexible working options, then don't hesitate to get in touch or send us a CV through our website!

    We have partnered with a local charity in St. Albans called Earthworks, who support people with learning disabilities - known as Earthworkers – to manage 3.5 acres of beautiful eco-gardens in St Albans. They cultivate fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants using organic principles, and build wildlife habitats. By providing purposeful activity, they develop skills, build confidence, boost health and well-being.
    Once a year the entire team spends a day volunteering in the eco-gardens alongside the Earthworkers. We also host regular team fundraising events.
