  • Recruitment and chocolate - Happy Easter

    Posted on Friday, March 30, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    Recruitment is like a box of chocolates If there’s one thing I’ve learnt so far in my new recruitment career, it’s that you never know what you’ll be met with on the other end of the phone. Selling anything, whether it’s a product or a service, is made that bit harder by doing it over the phone and nothing can predict the reaction you’ll receive on that first call. So with Easter imminent I’ve ...

  • Interview Techniques 1 - Make your point

    Posted on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    Make your Point! As a recruiter I often take feedback from clients that can be difficult to share with candidates. Feedback like “The candidate really prattled on”, “The candidate didn’t actually answer any of the questions I asked” and “The candidate gave us one word answers” but these are all issues that can be resolved easily with a few practiced interview techniques. Techniques such as P.E.E ...

  • Recruiting into procurement

    Posted on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 by Anders EgelandNo comments

    Recruiting into procurement gives me an odd sense of control Procurement departments are responsible for how money in a company gets spent; everything from pens and paper to new buildings and IT systems. For engineering it could be rivets or airplane engines, for manufacturing it could be thread or chemicals, for retail it could be receipt paper or food, for banking it could be computers or HR ...

  • The journey to representing England

    Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2018 by Sophie Powell2 comments

    The journey so far As I embark on my quest to become KSI World Champion this year (for which I am kindly being sponsored and supported by my employer Venn Group), I wanted to take some time to reflect on how I got to where I am today in karate and my career so far. The story so far… My mom and dad met doing karate and so karate for me is a family affair. I started Kimura Shukokai Karate aged six ...

  • Why just settle on going to one University?

    Posted on Monday, March 12, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    Can’t decide on one University? Maybe you don’t have to. Since University fees trebled in 2012, students have come to expect a lot more from their University experience and Universities have had to change the way in which they operate to become more business focused. The increase in fees has quite clearly "put universities under increasing pressure to deliver, and be seen to deliver, value for ...
