The UK recruitment market is growing. Fast!

The UK recruitment market is growing. Fast!

I have spent a lot of time involved in the UK recruitment market. I have lived there, worked there, and owned and run recruitment businesses there, until very recently. For the past decade I have visited London at least twice a year, often more. So I speak from personal experience when I say there h... Read On

Hire more drinkers!

Hire more drinkers!

Yes, you read that right. Hire more drinkers! Oh, wait, slight typo… I mean, you have got to hire more D.R.I.N.C.K.A.E’s If I were building new recruitment company today, the only people I would hire, would be D.R.I.N.C.K.A.E’s. And I am pretty sure this is valid across all business in the mod... Read On

How did it get to be ‘OK’ for people to be late for everything?

How did it get to be ‘OK’ for people to be late for everything?

This post may offend some readers, recruiters or not. But only because it’s going to cut close to the bone for many. And I don’t care if I sound old-fashioned, because actually it’s nothing to do with ‘fashion’ or ‘generation’. It’s got everything to do with basic good manners and re... Read On

14 signs you are a certified ‘Recruiting Tragic’

14 signs you are a certified ‘Recruiting Tragic’

What is a recruiting tragic? A recruiting tragic is a person who just can’t help bringing most things in life back to… recruiting. I admit to being guilty. I know others in the sad club. We don’t want to be like this. We are not proud of the affliction. It’s just in our DNA. Think you may ha... Read On

The future of recruitment — explained in 30 minutes!

The future of recruitment — explained in 30 minutes!

This webinar was recorded live on YouTube with Shane McCusker. Clearly, I have no crystal ball into the future of recruitment, but I do believe two things… Many companies, and many recruiters, will fail to evolve and will die out, very fast. Very soon. Recruitment still has a great future, but on... Read On

Recruiters! Stand Proud!

Recruiters! Stand Proud!

Recruiters get terrible press. And it’s worse now then ever before. Everyone has a ‘terrible recruiter’ story. They are ‘lazy, sleazy, pushy and incompetent’. And those are just the nicer things said. Every day brings more abuse and increasingly, gleeful predictions of the demise of the re... Read On

Suck it up princess. This is as good as it gets

Suck it up princess. This is as good as it gets

I rarely ‘go to lunch’. Business lunches, anyway. But recently I did, with a group of industry veterans including Geoff Morgan, the Founder of Morgan and Banks, and Talent2. In an industry short of true leaders and innovators, Geoff stands out as a remarkably resilient business builder, and crea... Read On

People don’t leave companies. They leave leaders!

People don’t leave companies. They leave leaders!

I have employed thousands of people over the years. And every time one resigned, a little part of me died. (OK, I lie. I have actually danced a celebratory jig around my desk on the odd occasion, but that’s another blog!) Mostly, my natural reaction has always been a human one I suppose. “What p... Read On

How to resign without being a prat

How to resign without being a prat

You have got a new job! Well done. Now, don’t spoil it all by making a hash of your exit from where you are now. I know, you are excited. It’s hard to stay focused on the old gig, when everything is ‘oh so cool’ about the new one. But remember, the ‘old gig’ was the ‘new gig’ not s... Read On

The hiring lesson I learned on the road to Mandalay

The hiring lesson I learned on the road to Mandalay

I admit it, I am a ‘recruiting-tragic’. And a symptom of this condition is that I can’t help but think about the hiring implications of almost any situation. And so it was, a few months ago, travelling with my family in Myanmar (formerly Burma), one of the most isolated countries anywhere, tha... Read On
