Welcome Ellie Berry-Roper - Tuesday 22nd Aug 2017

 

Everyone, please welcome Ellie our new commercial recruitment consultant here in One Step HQ, who is ready to tackle your permanent vacancies across Somerset.

Ellie has come from a recruitment background and is a natural at building relationships with both clients and candidates.

During a sunny August lunch break, Ellie told me “I’ve only been here for 3 full weeks and I am already really excited to get my teeth sunk into the role. Everybody at One Step has been so friendly and welcoming and I have received great in-depth training which has made me feel confident and excited about my role. I’m impressed by how much I have learned already”.

Welcome to the family Ellie.

Three cheers for our Chard ladies - Friday 11th Aug 2017

 

You may have seen our Chard ladies pop up on your news feed quite regularly recently…

The “Chard hard” team, as they’re affectionately known in our other offices, have really gone the extra mile in recent months for both our clients and candidates alike.

As a reward, our MD Nick has surprised Adriana, Ania and Claudia with a day at Buff Urban Day Spa next month, including a champagne lunch in the hot tub, full body treatments and a blow dry to send them home relaxed and looking amazing (not that they don’t already).

Thank you for your efforts ladies and enjoy!

We told you we reward hard work..Cue James Worth - Saturday 05th Aug 2017

 

There must be something in the water this week as Adriana, our Chard Branch Manager, called the marketing team to say she has a candidate who has been working for our well-established client and he HAS to be our August’s Team player of the Month.

“He is a lovely man, hardworking and one of the kindest souls I have had the pleasure of working with”. Adriana told me excitedly. 

She added “James always has excellent feedback from our client and (bless his heart) he brings his time sheet into our office every single Friday without fail, not only that, he brings all of his colleague’s time sheets too.

We have never heard a bad word said about you James. This is why we’ve rewarded you as our August Team player of the Month. whoop whoop!

This week the managers at One Step HQ got together and decided there is one consultant in particular who they wanted to reward for all her hard work.

Ania Dorochowicz, one of our Chard consultants, has had an exceptionally successful few months.

As a result, Ania has been given £50 of TK Maxx vouchers to spend as she wishes.

Ania you should be really proud of yourself and enjoy your very well earnt prize. Love the  One Step team.

A great day with the students from Chilton Trinity School - Thursday 20th Jul 2017

 

#ThrowbackThursday to a couple of weeks ago, when our Commercial Manager James joined fellow local businesses to lead a series of workshops to the Year 9 students at Chilton Trinity School, Bridgwater.

The students enjoyed a work-related activities week organised by CSW Group, which James participated in. James introduced the students to the world of work and recruitment agencies, giving valuable CV and interview advice, which really grabbed the pupils’ attention.

We received wonderful feedback from Hilary from at CSW Group, commenting “I was particularly struck with the energy, enthusiasm and desire to work with the young people that every employer I spoke to expressed.”

Hilary was also kind enough to pass on this heart-warming feedback from a teacher at the school, which has made our day: “Students who would normally find it difficult to even be in the room were engaged and interested in the workshops, which is a testament to the work you and the other employers have invested in their preparation. We appreciate your time and professionalism and can see the immediate benefit to the students in the way they ask questions about opportunities they would not have realised existed previously.”

We are in a very fortunate position to be able to deliver these workshops to the workforce of tomorrow and really enjoy working with local schools. We look forward to seeing all the local schools at our very own Somerset Skills & Careers Fair on 11th October 2017, where students can mix with over 80 exhibitors at a fun and informative event.  #inspiresomerset

#ThrowbackThursday to last week, when One Step Foundation / Recruitment joined fellow local businesses to lead a series of workshops for the Year 10/11 students at Huish Episcopi School.

The students enjoyed a day of careers advice, with One Step introducing pupils to the world of work and recruitment agencies, imparting valuable social media, CV and interview advice, which really grabbed the pupils’ attention.

Emma Higman, Independent Careers Advisor covering Huish Episcopi and Holyrood Academy commented: “feedback from students has been really positive and they found your workshop to be very informative.”

We are in a fortunate position to be able to deliver these workshops to the workforce of tomorrow and really enjoy working with local schools.

Happy Birthday James! - Thursday 29th Jun 2017

A very happy birthday to our commercial manager, James.

 

James is a vital and valued part of our team here at One Step Recruitment, so it is with great delight that we’ve treated him to his favourite tipple as a present from us all in the office. Unfortunately James has to wait until 17:30 to crack one open…!

 

We’re not going to reveal his age (we’re not that mean), safe to say there was just the right amount of appropriate banter!
