And the hunt begins

Today is my first official day as a candidate resource consultant and I expect it to be a rather busy day indeed. The world of employment is a tough one at the best of times, and resourcing the right people for the right job is something that can have its […]

Is it a bird, is it a plane, no, it’s a CV

Curriculum Vitae, something that we all have to write at some stage or another, but can we all improve on our approach when writing it. Over the course of our education, we’re told to improve our grades and reach our potential, but we are rarely ever given a life lesson in selling […]

Launch

With just four days to go now until Permanent People is unleashed onto the world, I’ve been struck at how an idea can grow into a plan and then into reality in such a short space of time. It takes a lot of hard work and there is definitely more […]
