Why so many tech companies are moving to the cloud

Why swarming should replace three-tier support

As we move into the era of DevOps, it is an opportune moment to pause and reflect. It is well worth considering just how fit for purpose the organisational structure currently in place in the vast majority of IT support teams actually is.

How to roll with the punches like Rocky Balboa

We can all learn from role models and we can all take inspiration from others. It can be the people who are closest to us – family and friends – or celebrities, sports people, musicians… it doesn’t really matter. It is what we get and what we learn from them that counts. Inspiration can come […]


Why ‘no-shows’ should be a ‘no-go’ for you

The employment landscape is now more fluid and flexible than it has ever been. Of course, this brings with it many advantages.

Only 10% of C-level candidates are good: How can you attract them?

5 things successful recruiters have given up

The distance between success and failure is often not that great, especially for recruiters. It is a thin line and there are slim margins between the two at times. However, the character and mind-set of a successful person and that of an unsuccessful person are often substantially different. To put it bluntly, winners have a […]


Recruitment is a 3-way thing: The triangle of trust

When people try to explain the importance of relationships in business, recruitment, and various other sectors, the ‘triangle of…’ or triangulation is often used as a way to show how each party must work with one another to bring about a desired result. In education, we talk of the school-student-parent relationship being all-important. Health, we speak […]


How to write the killer cover letter

The cover letter is dead, right? Surely, in 2017, in the age of gamified recruitment processes and video interviews, the archaic art of cover letter writing must have been confined to the job application dustbin by now?
