**IMPORTANT – CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS**
THE OFFICE IS OPEN AS USUAL ON THE 28TH, 29TH AND 30TH DECEMBER AND WE’RE BACK IN ON TUESDAY 3RD JANUARY 2012 BUT WE WILL BE ON HAND THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAYS SHOULD YOU NEED US.
December is always a busy month for us. We are making sure all our clients are fully staffed and prepared for the Christmas holidays as well as going about our day-to-day business of being on of the most innovative, successful and ruthlessly efficient recruitment companies in Hertfordshire.
We have blogged a lot in the last few months about attracting and retaining the best talent, legislation changes and making sure you’re prepared over the holidays but this month, we though we’d ease you into Christmas by introducing you to the newest member of ‘Team Asset Resourcing’, recruitment consultant Hayley Morton.
Hayley has been with Asset Resourcing since September 2011 and below, in her own words (mostly) she gives us the Asset Resourcing low-down!
My average day is busy! I spend a lot of time searching for the right candidates and speaking to our clients on the phone trying to match the perfect person to their perfect job and so far, it’s working! A good day for me is a new vacancy, getting CVs out and interviews on the board. Of course I prefer all three, but any one is a good result!
My career in recruitment started in 1995 as a resourcer (I searched for candidates on behalf of the consultant) and then I progressed up the food chain to consultant, team leader then to Sales Manager in IT, Engineering and Construction. I took a hiatus for a while to have Archie and Francesca (now 5 and 2) but the recruitment bug bit again and I’m really happy to be with such a great company!
I like working at Asset Resourcing because we are honest recruiters who provide an excellent service to both candidate & client. We know our clients well and have forged a fantastic reputation for being reliable, quick to respond & possessing an excellent understanding of the industry sectors we specialise in. On a personal level, the guys are flexible & understanding which makes balancing work & home life so much easier.
The future of the recruitment industry is notoriously uncertain. What I mean by that, is that we are living in such a fragile economic climate, the pool of qualified, talented staff across all our market sectors is growing every month, but the number of businesses willing to take on such great staff is not as high as it was. Here at Asset Resourcing, we won’t let a financial downturn affect what we do and in any climate, the most talented will always find work so we have a positive outlook for 2012. You have to work to get work and that is exactly what we’re doing!
My favourite food is Indian
My favourite book (so far) is All That Glitters by Pearl Lowe
My favourite sports team is Spurs
And…I love socialising and home improvements
So there we have it. That’s Hayley and she’s available, along with the rest of the Asset Resourcing team for anything you need.
As this is the final blog for 2011, all that’s left for us to do is to wish each of you a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year. As you know, we are here for you all through the holiday season so if you need us, call us.
Here’s to a profitable and stress-free 2012!
