Merry Christmas

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

As this year comes to a close, I would like to thank you for your kind support and loyalty throughout 2008.

It has been a key year for our company, marked by our move to new offices in Farringdon, the relaunch of our digital recruitment section, and the development of new services to our clients.

During the course of the year we have been privileged to work with many successful international organisations in a range of sectors and also with some great individuals who have been looking for suitable job opportunities. Despite difficult market conditions we have been reassured by the optimistic outlooks for many of you and also by the commitment of a hardworking and dedicated recruitment team.

Our aim for 2009 is to build on the good working relationships with our candidates and clients and work consistently towards improving the quality and flexibility of the services that our clients will be asking for and help organisations find the best people to work in their business be it on a long term/ permanent or contract basis.

Wishing you all best wishes for Christmas and a prosperous 2009!

Our day at Mudchute Farm

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

Last week we enjoyed a day out at the farm in Mudchute where some of the team built a bird aviary and painted animal enclosures to prepare for the winter weather.

It was a fun day to be had by all. Mudchute farm is always interested in hearing from potential sponsors and volunteers. Funding is always an issue and I am sure with much of its sponsorship coming from city firms it will welcome any extra help it can get over the months to come.
