The ER Team are officially closing our doors for Christmas in less than one month and although we’re looking forward to enjoying a relaxing festive break with family and friends, like most businesses our foot is firmly still on the pedal.
Whilst some organisations may slow down at Christmas, in recruitment- this certainly isn’t the case! With many firms looking to secure new employees to start within the New Year and numerous candidates starting to think about their New Year’s resolutions and career options, it’s all go-go-go in the ER house!
The busyness doesn’t end there though! We are regularly recognised for our active presence within the local business community and Christmas is a hectic time for events, socials and celebrations! We recently shared the exciting news that our MD Eileen was announced as Vice-President for the East Midlands Chamber, so are particularly looking forward to attending the annual Chamber Christmas lunch on the 6th December.
Other plans in the run up to Christmas include a variety of events including the group booking for our #BleedForHayley campaign, attending our chosen charity Hope Against Cancer’s Opera evening, cheering on our sponsored Riders and Tigers players Joe Scott and George Ford and of course celebrating our own Christmas party with the team!
But the excitement doesn’t stop there, 2020 is set to be another big year for the ER Team. One project we’re particularly looking forward to continuing within the New Year is our partnership with DMU and leading organisations Freeths and Brewin Dolphin focussing on increasing ethnic diversity among graduate recruits and business leaders in Leicester. Alongside this we’ll be increasing our headcount, broadening our training arm and continuing to strengthen partnerships with clients.
Looking back on 2019 so far, it’s been another successful year for the Eileen Richards Recruitment team with new recruits, sectors, patronage and projects secured as well as a significant amount of candidates placed within industry leading firms. There is so much for us to look forward to as a new year arises once again, keep your eyes peeled across our social media platforms for everything we’re involved in, but for now we have one more month to push those goals and make it happen!
If you are looking to increase your headcount heading into 2020, or are looking to secure a new opportunity, now is the time to act! Get in touch with us to see how we can support your recruitment needs.
