Thanks for a great 2015!! - Thursday 31st Dec 2015

 



What a year 2015 has been!

First of all a massive thank you to our Clients and candidates we work with!

As I sit down and write about this year, I realise it is impossible to include everything from 2015, but here are a few highlights!

We expanded to our third branch in Somerset! We opened our 3rd branch in the heart of Yeovil, allowing us to grow as a team. We now have Dee, Bradley, Yasmin, Charlotte, Samantha, Emma, Sally, Ellie, Diana and Matt – These guys have already become invaluable to the company and big personalities who make our company such an enjoyable one to work for!

Our Social Media has grown! We now have Pinterest page, YouTube Channel, Facebook and twitter, all proving successful in outlining what service we provide and offering advise to the working world! (thanks for interacting with us!!) J

Stef, Adriana and James have gained much deserved promotions and now run their respective departments! Massive well done all of you!

Now, then there are the awards! –Competing with hundreds of other agencies, we were finalists for Best Agency under 100 employees, Best Corporate and Social Responsibility Practitioner and Most Inspirational Manager!  All whilst maintaining our IRP Advocate status, Gangmasters license, Healthy workplace award and Workplace wellbeing charter!  

2016 holds a few exciting items in the pipeline to make our candidates and Clients experience with us easier in every way, from working on our website to planning the next successful Careers fair, and a few other projects we shall just have to bite our tongue about for now!! ;-)

We hope 2016 brings you happiness, health and wealth!

Love One Step

With Christmas just around the corner, here are a few Christmas facts you have not heard of before! - Tuesday 22nd Dec 2015

 

2,340,000 mph is the speed at which Santa's sleigh would need to travel if he were to reach every home in the world on Christmas Eve.

 

At Christmas, Judge Tom DuBois of Tennessee strikes a deal with minor offenders. He lets them off provided they show up in court and sing a Christmas carol

 

Originally, the first line to Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" was "I'm sitting by a pool in Beverly Hills dreaming of a White Christmas." - A friend suggested dropping the reference to Beverly Hills, and the song went on to become the most commercially successful song ever!

 

Christmas was once illegal in England. In 1643 the Puritans outlawed all Christmas celebrations, banned the keeping of Christmas trees, and criminalized the singing of Christmas carols. 

 

Have a great Christmas everyone, love the One Step team!

Best of luck to Dan and Sami! - Monday 14th Dec 2015

 

As our Monday morning starts in the offices (after a very fun Christmas party on Friday an evening full of food, drink and fun.) We find ourselves two valued members of the team down as they begin their new adventures elsewhere!

Dan and Sami the office will be a lot quieter without you both, and you’ll be sorely missed!

Good luck both of you in your new roles!

Love the One Step Family!

One Step Recruitment Yeovil in partnership with Inspire to Achieve - Tuesday 10th Nov 2015

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One Step Recruitment is working in partnership with Inspired to Achieve (i2a) (a subsidiary of Yarlington Housing Group), to support the residents into employment.

As part of their employment provision i2a run a 5 week “Getting into work” course. 

The first programme began Monday 5th October-2nd November, and has proven extremely successful with the participants, advising the course was “confidence boosting, friendly, inspiring, encouraging, helpful and fun!”

As a result Deanna Hughes our Yeovil consultant has already placed a resident from the course into employment!

This followed with some fantastic feedback from i2a’s Employment Manager Lee-Anne Hodges stating “Deanna withheld the upmost professionalism in representing One Step and the service provided to clients.”

Lee-Anne added “I was impressed with the respect and understanding Deanna showed our residents and after my own personal experience in the recruitment sector, I was particularly impressed with how Dee stressed her priority was to support residents into their choice of sector.”

At the end of the 5 week programme Inspired to Achieve and One Step help the residents secure employment with i2a providing ‘in-work support’.

One Step Recruitment wanted to join forces with Inspired to Achieve as we feel strongly about providing our candidates the right tools to be successful in the working world, from CV advice to interview training. 

This ethos is extended to our annual Somerset Careers Fair run by our Operation Managers Chris Kimmins via the One Step Foundation. www.onestepfoundation.co.uk 

If you are a Yarlington resident and you are interested in attending the next ‘Getting into Work’ course please call Inspired to Achieve on 01935 404075 or email employment@inspiredtoachieve.co.uk  or contact your One Step Recruitment Consultant.
