On "Culture" - “You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means”.

How many job adverts currently advertise a "great culture", "a start-up culture" or a "Google-like culture"?

Job Adverts: the good, the bad and the ugly!

On a daily basis whilst posting my client’s vacancies onto the job boards it amazes me how poor the vast majority of the adverts are on major UK job boards. Poor grammar, spelling mistakes, little detail and no call to action are just a few of the issues I see daily.

I am shocked that major UK businesses are trusting agencies with their vacancies to be represented in such a shoddy fashion. Rant over!…
