06 March

I speak to recruiters on a daily basis, and recently I’ve been answering a lot of similar questions on the subject of Google for Jobs, so I figured it was time to collate these questions and offer some answers! (I’ve also thrown in some resources I’ve come across that I believe are useful and could be of great help too). Google for Jobs – Lesson One Before I dive into anything else, I cannot st...

‘Why is the NPS (Net Promoter Score) not more widespread in our industry?’

04 February

Quite obviously customer quotes and references reassure nervous prospects that they’re making the right decision, and we do the same here at Voyager Recruitment Software – but we go further. For those not aware, the Net Promoter Score is a management tool that can be used to gauge the loyalty of a firm's customer relationships. It serves as an alternative to traditional customer satisfaction re...

Apprenticeships & Recruitment

03 December

How do you define an ‘Apprenticeship’? Whether you’re an employer, employee or jobseeker, upon hearing the word - you’re likely to envision a young person employed in a low-level role within a manual trade such as bricklaying or plumbing. Apprenticeships in the Past For some, there has been a generally accepted belief that apprentices aren’t ‘academically-focused’ and often, they’re found worki...

Attracting top talent using human connection

28 November

The first thing to bear in mind when considering your talent attraction strategy is this: what, where and how people search for jobs has never been so easy, so varied, nor put candidates so completely in control. There is no loyalty to any particular agency or job board; searching takes place anywhere, everywhere and at all times. The introduction of Google for Jobs means candidates need only s...

How to Adopt Early Technologies as a Recruiter

12 November

As business owners, this is something you’ll hear more and more over the next few years; we’re currently in the middle of a technical revolution, which is moving faster than ever before. I fear that businesses and recruiters who don’t embrace new technology will begin to fall behind over the coming years. It won’t be noticeable at first, but it will begin to creep and build and then it will be ...

Transitioning from Sales Consultant to Sales Manager

03 July

The recruitment industry is a funny old world. We can be so focused on getting our clients’ businesses boosted through exceptional talent and recruitment that we forget about our own.

The Project Charter

13 June

Do you ever feel your project work is taking over your “real” job? Do you feel you spend more time and energy on projects than you intended? If so, a good idea is to start by mapping out a Project Charter before you begin. This idea might be traced back to Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Alice asks the Cheshire Cat which way she should go and the Cheshire Cat asks where s...
