When Should You Quit your Job!

Think beyond practical boundaries and set out to fizzle. Build your own particular dreams, or another person will contract you to assemble theirs. It is never past the point where it is possible to be what you may have been. Never work only for cash or for force. They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night. Diligent work is terrible when life is without reason. Be that as it may when you live for an option that is more prominent than yourself and the delight of your own sense of…

Face or Fiction – a great recruitment myth?

There is a general consensus amongst search firms (and even some internal recruitment teams) that a face to face interview removes the need for a formal English testing assessment. Recently, we challenged a senior director from a large recruitment business to challenge their views on whether a face to face interview will always be better than an English test at testing the English competence of a candidate.  Having originally dismissed the need for an English testing service on the basis…

Taking care of the NHS

April 2013 saw the greatest shake up of the NHS since its formation in 1948. Under the Conservative Government all Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) were abolished and replaced with two new types of organisations: Commissioning Support Units (CSUs) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). 



The outgoing PCTs had been in operation for just over 10 years and were responsible for all the funding and commissioning of services throughout the NHS in England. The new CCGs…

Technology and the numbers game is destroying creativity of thought.

While browsing Twitter recently I noticed an organisation that was offering an all in recruitment advertising service for less than £200 (about $335), so I got in touch. Not because I have any jobs to advertise, but because I was curious. Here's what they told me:
