RECRUITMENT EVANGELISTS ACADEMY

Dated: 21 March 2021

Today’s business landscape is complex and changing fast and the world of recruitment is more exciting than ever. Navigating and manoeuvring it is critical and a combination of soft and hard skills is often at the heart of this. Having a mentor provides an opportunity to gain an understanding of the best ways to accomplish this. At the early stages of my career I was fortunate to have a couple of mentors that looking back now made a significant impact on the rest of my career and life. Over the years I have been asked countless times by those who…

HR and Recruitment working together with one common goal

Dated: 16 January 2021

Throughout my career both in operations and recruitment I have always naturally worked with HR professionals internally and externally. When I founded Recruitment Evangelists I had a long term vision to bring recruitment and HR closer together and eventually as one service. To understand the science behind HR I enrolled on an extensive HR course (which I have almost completed) and joined the CIPD community.

Momentum

Dated: 17 September 2020

I launched my new agency 2 weeks ago today and secured my third client yesterday. All of this month from the moment I wake up in the morning to the moment I go to bed everything I have done has been connected to the business at some level and I absolutely love it. One thing I am certain of, even though the economy has changed the people in our industry most definitely have not. I must have visited six different cafes, restaurants and bars yesterday and yes some of them weren’t as busy though the staff were super friendly, noticeably…
