Prepare for January blues…set your sights on a £250 Amazon voucher*

20th November 2018 | MotivationalNewsRecruitingYourRecruit

At YourRecruit, we love Christmas. The Christmas tree is up. The advent calendars are in position. The party outfits are hanging in wait. We savour every moment. However, we know what happens post Christmas. January blues are not a joke or click bait. In fact, they are the reality of many people across the UK. Therefore, practising self-care is extremely important. What is self-care? Self-care is the practice of looking after oneself. Often, January 1st sparks new diets, new fitness...

So tell me what you want, what you really, really want…

This week saw the reawakening of nineties kids all over the world, to the sound of a zig-a-zig-ah. Between 1000 and 1030 on Saturday morning, thousands of Spice Girls fans frantically refreshed their internet browsers in order to secure arena tickets for a reunion tour.  I did not acquire said tickets, but there is always hope. So tell me what you want, what you really, really want... Throughout the months of September and October, our clients completed a survey detailing their preferences...

Maybe she’s born with it… maybe she’s just spent a really long time honing her skills and has avoided procrastination like it’s a poison.

Not really as snappy or catchy as the well-known tagline we could all probably sing, but it's truthful nonetheless. And it becomes more evident the more candidates we place and the more colleagues we work alongside. I'm sorry to break it to you, but you either have it or you don't. However, there's no need to be completely fatalistic because lots of recent research suggests that if you don't have it, there are a number of things you can do to develop it. But, what is "it"? I have been...

Why have we been channelling Ross from Friends this past week?

1st October 2018 | MotivationalNewsYourRecruit

"Pivot, pivot, PIVOT" We all remember that episode of Friends, where Ross and Chandler were manoeuvring a large sofa down the apartment block's stairs, whilst Rachel coolly assisted. However, she soon idly stepped away when the instructions became a bit too...real. The word "pivot" never had the same meaning again. It was a bit like that on Friday. Despite only moving down a floor and along an - albeit labyrinthine - corridor, the pressure was on. Crates of computers, telephones,...

Some thoughts on motherhood and having a career. Women can have it all!

9th March 2018 | Career AdviceMotivationalYourRecruit

Mother's Day is coming up this weekend and it reminds us, once again, how challenging it is to handle motherhood and your career successfully! We’re all familiar with that nagging concern of getting the right work life balance. The truth is that there is no single answer on how to manage a career and motherhood, yet there are many career mums who have found ways to be efficient in both.  Having this topic in mind, we asked some of our working mums in the team to share their thoughts and...

How to like what we do, if we cannot love it entirely

7th February 2018 | Career AdviceMotivational

Let’s be honest. We all know that only a minor percentage of working population is blessed with "a dream job", but it doesn't mean we cannot like what we do, even if we don't love it.  Various scholarly articles and reports suggest a rise in Temping, Contracting and job hopping. Employees change their jobs far more rapidly than two decades ago. While our previous generations were happy with a "job for life", we intend to change it every three to five years. This phenomenon springs from...
