We stepped up at the Recruitment Fair at Haynes Motor Museum yesterday! - Tuesday 01st Mar 2016

 

Deanna our Yeovil Industrial Consultant hit up Haynes Motor Museum yesterday 29th Feb,  who were hosting the job fair for the 80+ members of staff of Sky TV’s call Centre in Shepton Mallet who are facing redundancy next month.

The event allowed us to provide support and showcase our Yeovil branches services (as well as our other two branches in Taunton and Chard) to the attendee’s with Dee stressing the point that we actively push our candidates CV even if we don’t have a current job that matches their requirements and simply we are a free service to fight your corner during your job hunt.

Dee was fantastic talking to the Sky staff members advising that we always invite the job hunter to a free registration then we will then sit you down with a specialist Consultant in the desired division. - This allows us to meet in person and have a better understanding of your requirements to put you forward for a job role with the right company culture for YOU.

Another successful day supporting those who needed our help when it really matters  the most. :-)

We won the Best Corporate Support award at the Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards 2016! - Tuesday 01st Mar 2016

Samantha our Marketing Coordinator was honoured to attend the Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards hosted by the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation following our MD’s Nick Mock’s heartfelt gift to provide Naomi the founder of the WWWF with a much needed member of staff to assist with the running of the foundation so she could spent more quality time with her husband and young son.

The event was a feast for the eyes with the Alice in Wonderland theme, all the men in Black tie and the women in evening dresses with the venue decked out with all the Alice and Wonderland props you could imagine! – After being spoilt rotten with a three course dinner, a few glasses of fizz AND being sat at the main table alongside Naomi, Graham and a few others who have majorly contributed to this life changing foundation the words “This special award for corporate support goes to ONE STEP RECRUITMENT!” 

Sam told the rest of the team back at the office, “As I went to go get the award from Naomi and Graham in front of a whole crowd who were applauding, all I could think was “There are so many other great people in this room who have supported the foundation why us!?” then Naomi whispered in my ear (as if she could read my mind) “We really couldn’t have done this without Emily, you have no idea how much it has helped me so thank you!”.

Sam concluded that with the whisper from Naomi “I was truly honoured and proud to have received this award on Nick and One Steps behalf”

One Step Recruitment was at the front line of Tiverton Job fair to help the 200+ employees of Broad Oak who were made redundant last week.

‘’It was incredible to be able help the community when they really did need our services the most’’ said Samantha Garner, Marketing Assistant.

The local MP, council and BBC news were in attendance, who wanted to ease the worry and provide a solution to the hundreds of ex-employees desperate for work- some of who have been without a pay day for over 5 weeks!  

‘’As a free service to help candidates get into work, with the help of our specialised consultants, I was proud to represent One Step Recruitment that day knowing that the information and service to help the ex-employees of Broad Oak  was made available to all who needed it’’, said Samantha.

Samantha added ‘’I provided as much of our information and tips I had the time for and explained exactly what type of roles we have. I even advised a few people to have the confidence to try an entire career direction now they are at a cross roads in their life!

It felt like we had truly done a service to the 200+ ex-employees, and hand on heart wish them all the best in the future.

Congratulations to the Winner of One Step's February Temp of the month! - Friday 19th Feb 2016

Our February temp of the month award goes to Phoebe Briggs as nominated by our Yeovil Industrial consultant Deanna!

We always love surprising our temporary workers with the award, who genuinely have no idea they have been nominated! When Phoebe popped her head in our Yeovil office to 'sign some paperwork' - as Dee has sneakily advised - and was handed a bottle of vino and box of chocolates she was beyond belief!

Deanna told Phoebe we constantly receive great feedback from all the clients she works with, including some who specifically request her at every opportunity, so this is our little way of saying thank you for all the hard work.

Congratulations again Phoebe - love the One Step team!

One Steps day at the seaside for the Sedgemoor Job Fair 2016! - Wednesday 17th Feb 2016

We do enjoy getting out and about ever so much and yesterday’s destination was down by the seaside in the Princess Theatre for the Sedgemoor Job Fair!

Our day began with the Chairman of Sedgemoor and a photographer from the local press popping over for a long chat with our commercial temporary Consultant Emma, then all of a sudden the doors opened to eager job seekers and we were READY!

The job fair was a great opportunity to meet a variety of people looking to refresh their employment status- from helping a woman who after 31 years in the same job and now fancies an entire career change, to a young chap who is after his first job and didn’t know quite where to start and everyone else in between!

A fab day all round and we received lots of thanks for our help and general job hunt advise throughout the day.

Pat on the back Emma for your hard work and thank you for having us Sedgemoor Job Fair 2016!
