We are pleased to announce two new starters who have joined our team at Orange Towers, Abigail Robinson and Michael Bentley.
As recruiters it’s frustrating to hear if a candidate has not attended an interview, however some excuses we have heard over our 13 years have made us laugh. Here are our top ten worst, best or most unusual candidate excuses we’ve had over to get out of an interview. Some of them we hear time & time again, while others are somewhat less common!
Previously, I shared my 5 top Supply Chain resolutions, and since then I’ve had a couple of people ask me to explain more around how they can implement these changes. Well… ask and you shall receive (as I’m sure any reverand will agree).
So, I thought I’d start at the beginning with my first resolution: KNOW YOUR WORTH.
With the Beast from the East hitting across the UK this morning, causing traffic mayhem & untold lost hours of business working time, here at Cast UK we are feeling a little smug.
Having launched our virtual video interviewing facility BroadCAST as part of our premium Edge service bundle, we now have the luxury of being able to proceed no matter what with interviewing simply using our “Anytime Anywhere” facility to connect clients & candidates as normal.

Below are my top 5 supply chain resolutions… It’s only February… You’ve got time to make a couple more.
Many people ask me why, having a sales career already, I decided to move into recruitment? Well, to be honest, I have always had a keen interest in recruitment, and had tried to get into it before I started on my journey to becoming a sales professional, but the timing was never right & I didn’t get the opportunity.
We are pleased to announce to new starters who have joined the team at our Manchester head office, James Brown and Jordan White.
My introduction to Cast UK has been, I have to say, something of a whirlwind! Beforehand, I was excited at the prospect of joining as I knew was coming into a business that has ambitious plans, something that Wayne, our MD took the time to explain to me during the interview process.
Even before my official first day, I attended a strategy day in London with the leadership team, to discuss our plans & targets and setting the scene for a big 2018. Its fair to say I have had to hit the ground running not walking in order to keep up!
