Rule #1 is to never be #2!
Whenever I meet with candidates to discuss opportunities here at the Cast UK, I always ask them; “what strengths can you bring the team?”, “what makes you stand out against other candidates?” or “why do you want to work at Cast UK?”.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of new Managing Consultant, Annabel Plowman, joining us at our Manchester office.
Last Friday was a big day at Cast UK, as we held our Annual Presentation & Orange Awards ceremony at the GMCC.
Amongst the Christmas celebrations, drinks & nibbles, our MD Wayne Brophy delivered his annual speech & summary of our year in 2016.
Wayne summarised that although 2016 has been an unusual year in some respects with the Brexit vote prompting caution in some sectors, in others, such as Retail & FMCG, the pace of recruitment & the desire to find the best talent in a candidate-scarce market meant that in the latter half of the year recruitment requirements increased.
We are very pleased to welcome four new associate consultants, Jack Currell, Joshua Walker, Jacob Hurt and Daniel Kirk to Cast UK at our head office in Manchester.
Aimée joined the Cast UK team following 3 years working in procurement for a global manufacturing and tier 1 automotive business. Aimée has been at Cast UK for 3 years now and is the Managing Consultant of our Procurement and Supply Chain team, recruiting within the Engineering and Manufacturing sectors, where much of her previous procurement experience has been attained.
No two days are the same working in recruitment but we thought we’d shed a little light on our dark arts – by running through what a typical day looks like for one of our team.
