Do you have an app? Does it help?

Hi, I have just had a very simple app made up and linked to my recruitment site, you click and it displays the latest jobs and some social feeds and contacts, seems to do the job. But I am interested…Continue

"I am not here to make friends."

I have heard people say this in recruitment many times. It sounds like the kind of vacuous horse dung that comes out of the mouths of people who go on the apprentice and think that they are there because they are good at "business" and not just because the producers have deemed that they would make great TV (Really? surely not). The apprentice is a reality TV show, just like X factor. It is there to increase…See More

Canvas calling. Is it the way to get business in 2013?

Morning all, more of a rant than a blog. This morning I am rushing to jump on the tube, I am expecting a potential offer from a top client. My phone started ringing, it was a withheld number. I rush back up the steps at Stepney Green tube station out of breath pressed the green but and answer “JGB Partners” the voice on the other end “Hi Jim, how are you today? Would you be interested in outsourced RPO services?“ ARRRRRRRRGGHHHHHH” I just missed the Hammersmith and City line, I have to wait…See More

"We already have our site configured to a responsive layout - so that it adapts to all mobile formats, thought this was kind of essential, the app was just an extension of that, our tech guy used a 'plug in to the CMS from Weever apps'…"

"Might not help, but feel it will be a MUST w/. the data/studies showing the increase on mobile use. This is indeed how many will explore what might be out there for new positions. Nice to see that you are ahead of the curve. Is the one you create…"

Hi, I have just had a very simple app made up and linked to my recruitment site, you click and it displays the latest jobs and some social feeds and contacts, seems to do the job. But I am interested in those out there who have apps that actively announce new jobs etc.. Do you think this works, or is it more of an annoyance? and what is your general experience of using apps to attract candidates - basically, does it help?See More

RFP Writers: Still some of the toughest roles to fill

I have been recruiting into Asset Management for nearly 9 years now, I have seen good times, bad times, average times and some down right terrible times but one thing is always constant. There just aren’t enough experienced RFP Writers out there.RFP writing in the past, at some organisations was seen as a “copy and paste” job. It was an area that people seemed reluctant to get into or work in.Now things are different, with preservation and growth of AUM being absolutely vital to Asset…See More

How to get into Banking, Asset Management, Hedge Funds or any Financial Institutions. The first step.

The question that I hear the most from people every day is “How do I get into Finance?”. Pre 2008 pretty much anyone could get into financial services if they wanted to, be it an operations role at a custody house or in an investment bank, or even at a hedge fund. There were hundreds of recruiters making thousands of pounds filling these roles. If you had OK GCSE’s or the odd A level here and there you were fine. If you wanted to transfer from a different career to FS, as long as you had good…See More

Nothing says 'Hire me' like 'Thank you'

A very simple interview tip. How do you feel when you open a door for someone and they walk through it? Now how do you feel when you open a door for someone, they walk through it, turn and say “Thank you very much, no one opens doors for people anymore”. You feel good don’t you?Well exactly the same goes for interviewers.…See More
