Team Glen Callum all cross the finish line at Denso Ironbridge Half Marathon 2019

We are delighted (albeit a little bit sore) to announce that Team Glen Callum completed the “multi-terrain” 2019 Denso Ironbridge Half Marathon in aid of Cancer Research UK. The aim was to “finish” and it’s fair to say the hard work and training for this “undulating” half marathon certainly paid off. The team also agree that “undulating” is an understatement.

We did it!

The Ironbridge half marathon runs up and down through the historical and picturesque Ironbridge gorge, though not that many of our team were able to take in the sights and scenery, keeping their focus on the finish line and their time. Continue reading full article

REC Agency Member

 

As members of the Recruitment Employment Confederation (REC), not only do Glen Callum Associates adhere to their strict code of conduct and recruitment ethics, we are also privy to their latest news and information with regards to the UK job market.

The REC has just published a report on the UK Labour market, noting that permanent placements are still on the rise, which is obviously great news for candidates.
