We’ve looked into how you could adapt your recruitment strategy to appeal to these new graduates.

How to get promoted as a remote employee

August 4, 2021

The world of work has changed on a scale never seen before. Recent estimates suggest that half of all businesses in the UK are now embracing a hybrid working model, while a quarter have ditched their offices altogether in favour of remote working. While these are relatively new ways of working and come as a direct consequence of the pandemic, they are likely to become a permanent way of working life moving forward.

Voting now open at this year’s SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards!

July 6, 2021

We are a category sponsor (Charity Of The Year) at this year’s SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards so we wanted to let you know that voting has opened to members of the public today via

From March to June this year, organisations were given the chance to nominate themselves across 16 SGGLA categories, and SoGlos revealed entries flooded in from leading businesses across Gloucestershire – with an incredible 233 nominations by the closing date. The best of the best 125 organisations were then shortlisted, and have each been sent a pack of ‘vote for us’ printed assets in the post, and digital assets by email.

Will your CV pass the 5 second challenge?

July 5, 2021

As the world begins to return to normal, competition between candidates for jobs is set to explode as a post-pandemic boom comes into play. Not only will we likely see a plethora of newly created roles estimates suggest that the ending of the furlough scheme could see an additional ¼ million people entering the jobs market – competitors!

The ability to ‘sell’ yourself as the applicant of choice has never been as great as it is now and the first opportunity you have at your disposal is your CV. But in many industries, hiring managers and recruiters can receive hundreds of applications for each job, and so they need to get through them quickly to sort the wheat from the trough.

With most recruiters spending an average of only 5-7 seconds looking at your CV, you need to make your stand out…. and fast. So, how can you make your CV stand out?
