So it’s been a year since I started at Ashley Kate HR and wow what a year it’s been.
I know that you hear recruitment agencies constantly say “we are different” but Ashley Kate HR really are. I was at a point where I wanted to come out of recruitment because it was too cut throat and people didn’t care about candidates or clients they just wanted to make a quick win. Here is different, we actually care about the people we place and also that our clients get an exceptional service. After all in HR our candidates are our clients and we recognise that!
I really enjoy being a “Consultant” and understanding my market and being able to advise people on how to change their lives. I have helped people relocate, get that promotion or make a bad situation into a good one. I know I can’t work miracles but I will help you get that job through market knowledge, advice and just being that person to bounce ideas off.
I have seen so much change in the market recently and it's so important to keep one step ahead of the game. This is not only important for us as a business but also clients and candidates. We are now in a very competitive environment and we all need to ensure that we stand out from the rest. Whether that’s a company showcasing what they can offer to an employee, to a candidate shining in an interview to pip others to the post. With this in mind we need to remember to listen to others. We need to understand what works and learn from what doesn’t to ensure we always move forward. We need to start seeing the positive rather than nit picking on the negative (As we say “small wins”). If we all kept this in mind when dealing with others then the world would be a much nicer place and success would happen more often.
So what makes us different? It’s simple really….US!
Here is to many more years to come!
