As a recruiter, when I go and meet with new clients to take a job brief, the hardest part for me is getting them to explain to me what little things about them and their business would make someone want to work there. I’m not talking about bean bags, pool tables or office dogs. No […]
Sometimes it's not easy to get your head around a complex subject like Neurodiversity! So I've pulled together some great articles, blogs, videos and signposted you to some people to follow. Hopefully it provides us all with a good source of information on the subject ;)
We want the candidates we can't have and the candidates that love us and would do anything to be with us , we push away. We suffer from a national skills shortage! Or do we? In fact are we just stuck in a love triangle that we need to rethink?

It’s easy to stand on the side-lines and scream and shout (ask any footie fan what that’s like); but when you see a tragedy unfolding, it’s hard not to say anything about it. In these challenging times 'Highly Ineffective Managers' need to get back to basics and consider the '7 habits'...

The last few months at Love Monday were busy for me. I saw a decent number of placements given my one-(wo)man band status, for that reason I obviously saw a lot of resignations and had to coordinate the impending start dates. Now maybe it’s just me, but it seemed to me that there was a […]
I'm having a go at sharing how we can all start to look at making our environments, workplaces, recruitment processes a little better and more Neurodiverse friendly for 2019.
It's not as difficult as you think and could plug into other key initiatives and strategic objectives! + it feels good to do good things ;)
