Practise What You Preach!

Hello again.

How is 2011 going? Picture More is having a great start to the year!

Careers in 2011
The professional services IT sector is quite buoyant at the moment, so much so that employers who sit on good CVs for too long are missing out on top talent. Our clients have been delighted with the excellent candidates we’ve placed. Amongst them were an Interim Head of IT for a well-known travel company and the Head of Market Data Management for an investment bank. As ever, we’d like to thank all the candidates who have represented us and congratulate those who landed the jobs this time. Thanks also to our clients for continuing to put your faith in our service.

Recruitment Specialists
Like us, you may know an excellent project manager who can’t organise a trip to the shops or a CRM software consultant who can’t manage a customer relationship. We all know doctors who do unhealthy things and most of us know a hairdresser with a dodgy “do”. What happens when a recruitment consultancy tries to hire new staff? Does the emotion hamper the objectivity? We’d like to think that emotions informed our objective thinking as we are delighted to announce the arrival of three new colleagues.

New Team Members
Jade Rawle is a recruitment professional with a background in financial services. She is now using that experience to focus on Business Analyst roles and other positions at the interface between finance and technology.

Joanna Gray has a similar financial recruitment background to Jade and is now dealing with Project Management and General Management positions.

Kimberley Nelson was a Partner HR Manager for “magic circle” law firm Linklaters. She has an MA in Personnel and Development from the University of Westminster and is a Chartered Member of the CIPD. She has joined Picture More to act as our Head of HR and Office Manager.

Contact us to see how we can help your business. It is a difficult creating a new team and although we found wonderful new colleagues there were times when even we would have welcomed the input of an objective recruitment partner. This issue is relevant to businesses of any size and we know how hard it can be.

Bye for now.  We'll be back with a new blog in the spring.
