Bad Patch Day?

How to Bounce Back Stronger When Things Go Wrong I recently read about a technical glitch that brought a national retailer’s operation to a halt. There could be a multitude of reasons why that incident occurred. It wasn’t the first time it had happened and I’m not sure it will be the last. Let’s be…

Are You Planning for Additional Headcount in Q1 next year?

After 20 years in the industry, I’m not too proud to say that I know recruiting is one of people’s least favourite things. It often feels like a distraction from your core responsibilities, and something you need to do in addition to your ‘day job’. That’s partly true. Which is where we come in. I…

Why Creating a Positive Interview Experience is Important

“Mate, it was a shocker. Based on my experience, I would not work there.” That’s how a good friend of mine responded when I asked about his recent interview. He’d called me a few weeks earlier for advice. Working in recruitment, I tend to get a lot of these calls and it’s always quite fun!…

Why a Robot Won’t Be Taking My Job

A number of years ago I attended a recruitment conference. The theme was technology and the keynote speaker highlighted the impact of automation and AI on the recruitment industry.

LinkedIn Requests – You’re Doing Them Wrong

Pre-COVID-19, I would receive a handful of LinkedIn connect requests a week from people who were clearly trying to sell me something, or wanting to increase the reach of their network by connecting to mine.

Building Business Resilience and Why it Matters

I started in the recruitment industry in early 2000. I have recruited a diverse number of roles across a wide range of industries, placing thousands of people into jobs throughout my career.

Why We Need to Talk More About Learning Agility

At the risk of showing my age, I remember when recruiters faxed CVs to hiring managers. Nowadays, CVs can be shared quickly via email or Teams or any other collaborative platform with a few clicks of the mouse. I suspect there won’t be too many changes to this particular process. However, this year has taught…

What We Can Learn From Jacinda’s Leadership Style

My mother always told me that polite conversation should never include politics or religion. Whilst Jacinda is inarguably a politician, today’s blog focuses not on her politics, but her leadership. Mum, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you’ll let me off the hook this once. I’ve been watching Jacinda Ardern’s career with interest since she…
