Janine has achieved a Distinction in her Certificate in Recruitment Practice. After 12 weeks vocational study and an exacting 2.5 hour exam in Leeds, Janine has now qualified as a member of the professional body Recruitment and Employment Confederation.
Debi said ‘As an industry, recruitment is unregulated. We believe it is important to take these qualifications and work to the professional code of conduct laid down by the REC. In these demanding times it would be easy to loose our focus of quality and professionalism. Janine has done amazingly well and I’m absolutely delighted with her results. Well done Janine!
Following an incredibly busy year and to support our ongoing expansion plans, we are delighted to announce our move into larger premises.
We’re still in the Copthall Bridge House so, no need to to go looking for us, just come to reception and ask for Debi or Janine.
We’re delighted to welcome you to our new website! As much as we loved our old website, in the words of our clever designers, it did need a little modernising and funking up! We hope you like it as much as you did the last one – we do! Big thanks to Holly, Adam and the team at Wonder Media. Great job guys!
1 Your CV – is designed to do just one thing – get you an interview. The average recruiter will only spend between 10 to 20 seconds glancing at a CV which means that you need to make an impression quickly and sell yourself.
Acting as your personal shop window, your CV enables buyers (employers) to see what you have to offer and good presentation is key to attracting their interest. Writing a winning CV can be a challenge. But, by putting the mileage in, you will have a document that will make potential employers take action and invite you for an interview.
2 Do Your Research – you could be up against 5-10 other interviewees so, you need to be clued up. Check out their website for history, product information, location, any news etc. This will give you some common ground in the interview.
The latest statistics shows a slight decrease in the unemployment rate in the Harrogate District to 1.7%. Great news for our area and still half the national average of 3.5%. (Figures taken June 11).
