    It's been getting spoooooky here at Intelligent People Limited as we all got into the #halloween spirit with a pumpkin carving #competition! 🎃🎃🎃

With some seriously talented pumpkin carvers in the room, it was difficult to choose who would win the prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place 🏆 but Alex, Marnie, and Victoria wowed us with their original and creative designs!

Like what you see? We're #hiring! Reach out if you'd like to learn more 👻 #recruitmentWelcome to our newest (and youngest) recruitment consultant! 😍

#startyoung #dailygrind #recruitmentGo Karting followed by a 9-course fine dining feast anyone? 🏎️🍽️🍾

Our summer incentive day was spent racing around the indoor Go Karting track at @teamsportkarting (some of us were more competitive than others!) before we all headed to @thompsondining for an amazing selection of cocktails and a 9-course fine dining experience! 

It was great to reward everyone's hard work over the previous quarter - we can't wait to work towards smashing our target for the next incentive day! 

#recruitmentagency #incentive #workhardplayhardHave you heard of Insights Discovery? 

Earlier this month the whole team got together for a day of self-awareness training through the Insights colour preferences. 

Insights is based on the psychology of Carl Jung and uses four colours - 

Fiery Red 🔴
Sunshine Yellow 🟡
Earth Green 🟢
Cool Blue 🔵

 - to help people understand their communication style, their strengths and the unique value they bring to the team.

And by understanding our own colour preferences, this helps each of us to understand how we work with others too, both those who are similar and who are opposite to us.

Feedback from the team was overwhelmingly positive, and we can't wait for our next learning and development day! 

Interested in joining a team that offers fantastic personal and professional training and development? We're looking for trainee and experienced recruiters to come and join our team! Visit our website (link in bio) for more details!

#summer #worklifebalance #hiringIt was fantastic to be proudly sponsoring last night's @womeninproductldn event in London, where our own Doug Bates led a talk on the current market, salary expectations and steps that women working in Product can take to negotiate salary. 

It was an amazing event to be a part of, and so inspiring to see so many women getting involved and making new connections. 🍷🎉 Looking forward to the next one! 

#womeninproduct #salarynegotiation #recruitment🌟 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!

    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.
