This is why we love what we do - Friday 05th May 2017

Our manager, James, shared these wonderful words he received about Yasmin our commercial consultant in our Yeovil office. 

"I understand that you are Yasmin's first line manager and I just wanted to say what an excellent employee you have.

Yasmin has done a brilliant job in finding me work and she is a great asset to your company. I was registered with 4 agencies in total but Yasmin has been the single most professional individual amongst them. She has been extremely efficient, professional and thorough and is always polite and friendly. She is an example to others and streets ahead of the rest. I hope she gets some sort of recognition for her efforts. She has been a real pleasure to deal with and I can't say that of the other agencies.”

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, you know who you are. It is a real testiment to our team and why we simply love what we do. #staylocal

#TBT to us winning the Somerset Business Awards in the 'Skills for Growth' category 2016. - Thursday 27th Apr 2017

Last October we were in the final 3 for the Skills for Growth category, a cause and category that we were thrilled to have simply been nominated for after years of us building our voice, trust and relationship with the local community via School workshops, through to adults facing redundancy and of course our annual Somerset Skills & Careers Fair 2016, all on top of our “day jobs”.

After a 3 course dinner, a few drinkies and the short video…the words…”And the winner is…..One Step Recruitment LTD” A moment of pure shock and only the recollection of uproar and applause around the room and our table (you can all imagine Steve,) whilst Tansy and I make our way to the stage to collect the award, say our thank you and pose for the press "my favourite bit" advised Sam G our Marketing Coordinator.

Visitor bookings now open - Wednesday 19th Apr 2017

 

With the arrival of a sunny spring, a new financial year and still fueled by chocolate, we’ve been busy sending out letters to all the state schools in Somerset to mark the opening of this year’s advance group bookings for the fifth anniversary Careers Fair on Wednesday 11th October at The Venue @J24.

We have had the pleasure of working with Mandy Plece, Head of Careers at Haygrove School, to help overcome common objections that schools/colleges may have to taking students out during the school day. Here’s what Mandy has to say:

 “We continue to take the whole of our Year 10 to this event; it is perfect for this age group as the students get to network with local businesses  and build positive links for work experience. It also helps them understand what comes next and the key skills they need for their work journey.  Our students’ eyes are opened to the opportunities available to them, with no bias and all under one roof.

 We are happy to take our Year 10’s out during the school day, as this event is a unique opportunity to link the curriculum with everyday working  life. Liaising with exhibitors is a super way of improving students’ communication skills.

 I also benefit directly, networking with key influential people in the area in these exciting times for Bridgwater and the South West. Attending  this major careers fair takes the pressure off arranging our own; we do not have the resources, or the room, to offer anything as impartial or on this scale.”

Please follow this link to place your advance group booking on our One Step Foundation website, selecting your preferred arrival time from 9.30, 10 or 1030. We look forward to hearing from you!

Public schools you haven’t been forgotten, your invitations will follow in the next fortnight when you return from the Easter break…

A week of awards at One Step - Friday 07th Apr 2017

You may have noticed our first ever double Team Player of the Month Award earlier this week and we have sneakily kept one last surprise to a much deserved candidate.

Ania, our Chard consultant, told us Joshua has been her team player for February, March and April for his excellent work he carried out for our clients and because he ‘bends over backwards for One Step’ at every opportunity.

It gives us great pleasure to reveal Joshua now has a permanent contract through another large client of ours with a global presence.

Joshua is a little camera shy, so we didn’t grab a picture this time, but Joshua…you know who you are and we thank you millions
