UK Labour Market

For all businesses, the summer is traditionally a slow time. People go on holiday and take time off, less business gets done and it’s a time to take stock of where you are and plan your strategy for the second half of the year. We’re the same, save for one exception. We’re getting busier and it’s down to two fundamental elements. Our service offering to clients and candidates is the foundation stone upon which our entire business model is built and also, theUKlabour market is on the rise. As members … Continue reading

It’s All Go at AR this Summer!

Traditionally, the summer is when everything slows down, and for good reason. While we’re all basking in the collective national glory of Andy Murray’s sensational Wimbledon win, a veritable thrashing of the Australians by the British & Irish Lions and at the time of writing, a potential series whitewash in The Ashes, we can all be forgiven for taking some time out, enjoying the weather and generally having a breather. That is unless you work at Asset Resourcing. The recruitment industry (as with all industries) suffers during periods of fiscal … Continue reading

Two New Starters at AR Towers

It appears that after some delay, the summer is finally creeping up on us. We’re almost halfway through 2013 and we don’t know if it’s just us (or the sunshine), but there appears to be a renewed optimism both from our candidates, clients and the workforce in general that things are starting to pick up. As you know, we’ve moved closer to Ben’s favourite bar and Michelle’s hairdresser into bigger premises so we can further serve our ever-expanding client base with the best IT & New Media jobs, the best … Continue reading

We’ve moved!

When we started Asset Resourcing, we knew we had a sound business model, we knew we had the relevant industry experience and we knew we had a good enough service offering to compete in what is a crowded marketplace but what we didn’t know was if a) we were going to be successful and b) just what our growth might look like. Our growth over the last few years has been down to a number of elements. Working hard and diligently for our clients for sure, but also by identifying … Continue reading

Why Recruiters Aren’t Calling You Back

The signs are there that the UK economy is slowly coming out of the funk we have found ourselves in for the past half-decade.

How To Win Over Your Potential Employer

Potential employers make up their mind about you between six seconds and three minutes of you sitting down in front of them. You did read that right. Six seconds. Everyone’s attention spans are getting shorter and when it comes to impressing the person to whom you’re asking for a job, money, benefits and other assorted perks you have less time than you think, so what should you do? 1. Make a good first impression. It may sound obvious these days, but a firm handshake, solid eye contact, a positive demeanour … Continue reading

Hello 2013, Hello Georgina!

So, how was your Christmas and New Year? Incident-free and full of food, drink and a determination that 2013 is going to be your best year ever?  Yes, us too. January is a notoriously miserable month. The credit card needs to cool down, it’s cold, wet and grey outside and we all trundle back into work to be faced with hundreds of emails, a backlog of work that will seemingly take months to clear and there are people coughing, spluttering and moaning all over the place. We repeat, it’s generally … Continue reading
