Fantastic feedback following Wednesdays workshops advising what a Recruitment Agency actually does. - Thursday 04th Aug 2016

James Tuckett our Commercial Manger carried out two presentations to companies dealing with current redundancies. James explained what a Recruitment Agency does and how we help a job seeker and indeed, companies with vacancies to fill.

Below are a couple emails following the workshop, which are a real testimony to James and One Step's position within the industry. 

I found the One Step Recruitment Workshop very useful.  In particular it was good to have up to date information about Recruitment Agencies. There were many useful tips around producing a CV and interviews and in particular around social media and its implications. Thank you. 


I very much enjoyed the session. I like the approach James took by not talking at us like numpties. I was a little concerned that I would be faced with the all singing all dancing professional pusher of agencies but I was very surprised in a positive way by him. He had an easy manner which enabled the information to be understood clearly.  I liked the fact he did not try to baffle us with lots of professional jargon.


I for one have walked away with a clearer understanding and I think there is a strong possibility that I could book an appointment with One Step if he is anything to go by.


I thought it was very useful for an 'outside' Recruitment Agency to come to the office to give us an indication of what is expected in the outside world.  James was very informative regarding CV's and Interviewing techniques and it was very interesting to hear what it would be like to join a Recruitment Agency, I think he may well have a few new recruits. Thank you to you for organising the event, definitely worthwhile.


Good work that chap.

Remember - Safety First.
