Nothing like a glowing client testimonial to beat the January blues! - Wednesday 27th Jan 2016



Adriana our Chard branch Team leader and winner of One Step Recruitments Top Consultant of 2015 award, was welcomed to work this cold Wednesday morning by an email from one of our new clients we supplied staff for over the festive period.

It read;Adriana was very helpful in helping us with temporary staff at very short notice to assist us with our Christmas rush. 

We had not used a temporary agency staff before and were slightly nervous about their quality of work, how they would fit in, etc. Adriana provided us with very helpful, pleasant temporary staff who worked well within the teams we put them with.

Adriana helped us through all the paperwork in a very pleasant cheerful manner. 

She made a very stressful situation very easy.  She was very understanding of our initial misgivings and proved us completely wrong!

Nothing can take the smile off Adrianas face today! Much deserved and well done gorgeous lady!

A very good morning indeed! - Thursday 21st Jan 2016



Back in November we proudly announced One Step Recruitment is working in partnership with Inspired to Achieve (a subsidiary of Yarlington Housing Group), to support Yarlington residents into employment.

Deanna our Yeovil consultant who’s been involved in the project with the rest of the fantastic Inspired to Achieve team, have now made the Western Gazette news this morning!

The article includes the  achievements and success the program has had on the residents including one now in full time employment who hasn’t worked since 2004!

Well done and congratulations to everyone involved in the program!

It doesn’t stop there!

This morning Our Operations Manager, Chris had a great morning at Heathfield School Business Breakfast.

Saving Somerset’s dwindling swift population and refurbishment of the school toilet facilities were the topics of discussion – as well as networking with like-minded business people – a morning very well spent.  And the bacon sandwiches were apparently amazing too!

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!
