PP Newsletter | Easter 2019

With the Easter bank holiday weekend upon us, I think we can all agree that a bank holiday weekend is overdue! Every accountant we speak to at the moment appears to be doing overtime, and we certainly are - recruitment is far from taking some time off. We've even hired some new faces to ensure we can continue to provide our candidates and clients with the best service.

When a candidate this week mentioned he gets over ten approaches per week with opportunities from either recruitment agencies or a direct client approaches, it really does confirm the competition for talent is well and truly alive!

I appreciate that we've spoken to some of you this week about what would encourage you to respond to a LinkedIn message, but we're always keen to hear further thoughts to make us better at what we do! Email us with your ideas!

How do you pick the genuine approach from the spam? Does your head spin at the thought of where to start and who to believe? We don't over promise CV's to clients or jobs to candidates, but the public practice market is currently very competitive and by working together, we'll do our best to find you opportunities and give you options.

No pressure, no hassle and fully supported all the way.

If you would like to schedule a call or meeting regarding your 2019 job search or to discuss the wider job market then please do get in touch.
