How to beat the January blues.

January the month of Mondays where even the most optimistic and energetic personality can lose their usual enthusiasm and feel down in the dumps. So what we can we do to get through the month feeling more positive than ever?

Our years highlights

With the end of 2017 fast approaching us we thought it would be nice to remember some of our favourite events and jobs we have had the pleasure to experience this year between us and our sister company Five Rivers Recruitment. After some debate and a few tense moments over some mulled wine and mince pies here are our top 3 events of the year:

Employee of the month November

A huge congratulations goes out Lulu our employee of the month for November! Lulu has been a dedicated and a hard worker from day 1 and she has reliably worked every weekend shift at Stonehenge since starting with us. Well done...

Training at our sister company Five Rivers Recruitment

Just imagine if you were the only person left in the world. Everything could be done your way! No more negotiating, no communication (except with the animals), a world where you don’t need to influence anyone to get what you want. Heaven or hell?

Trials and Tribulations of first time employment

We’ve seen a real increase over the last couple of weeks of young adults coming in to ask our advice on future careers and CV help. We are seeing a huge volume of candidates that don’t have a CV in place and this has prompted us to question if this is not being focused on in schools as it was certainly when I was in year 10 and 11.

We see teenagers receive a lot of flack generally in the employment industry, however…

Parents at your initial interview!?!

At this time of year we register a huge number of students looking for summer work. For many this will be their first job which can be extremely daunting. We were all young once (although it might feel like a lifetime ago!) and can remember interview nerves, so should your bring a parent or guardian along with you when you come in to register?

Interview Nerves

We all get nervous when we think about the daunting interview experience.

However, we don’t always need to feel this way!

If we take this experience and turn it around into something positive, it can actually be a very helpful process that can actually give us confidence for the future.
