Social Media for Your Job Search

Job Markets today are significantly different to how they used to look 10 years ago. While most of us are clued up on applying for roles online, very few people are aware of the power of social media when it comes to finding that perfect job. Over the next few weeks, I am going to […]

What a week in recruitment …

Only one week on from meeting Steve Wozniak, one of the modern world’s leading geeks (that’s what he calls himself), visionaries and legends of innovation, as well as also being selected as Finalists in the National Entrepreneur Awards 2014, and we find ourselves in our final week as a 2 man band!

The Hospitality Gem

This week, we had the pleasure of working with our good friends at Chin!Chin! Bar & Kitchen, a lovely cafe/restaurant based in the lovely St Michael’s Hill in Bristol.
