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.

The flip side to this is as demand for staff across the UK remains strong,  candidate availability drops, thus pushing the average starting salaries to their reported highest since April 2015!

Royal Wedding Day Celebrations at Glen Callum

Royal Wedding Day Celebrations at Glen Callum

And a great excuse for cakes on a Friday! 

Unless you have managed to avoid all TV, Radio Internet and other forms of communication then you may have heard that tomorrow on Saturday 19th May 2018, there is a “small gathering” in Windsor to celebrate the Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Harry of Wales and actress, Meghan Markle.

As the team here at Glen Callum sadly won’t be attending the wedding (we think our invite got lost in the post!), we have decided to celebrate today with our Red, White and Blue themed day in the office. We have union flag bunting, union flags for our desks along with union flag plates and bowties!

 We were even lucky enough that our go to general knowledge guru, Mr Gary Horwood, was at the ready with his flag based facts and that I couldn’t refer to the bunting as “Union Jacks” because we are not on a warship… 

And naturally, there is plenty of cake. All the quintessentially British cakes of course! Well, how else would we keep up the blood sugars of our busy recruitment consultants?
