So, for my first ever blog, I thought I would combine something I do on a daily basis (other than talk about Harry Potter!) with my all-time favourite book/movie franchise. It got me thinking that most marketing ‘characters’ within the team have the exact traits of JK Rowling’s famous individuals. Take a look and see.
So we’ve had the Brexit smash up and it’s still unfolding. And to rub salt into the wound, we can now enjoy the hangover of this toxic party and it’s not pretty. Everyone is on edge. I have spoken to a number of candidates following this fiasco and the question on nearly everyone’s lips.
Recently I called a company who sold, shall we say, ‘food distribution technology’ into other businesses. I asked if they had a marketing team.

I’m sure a lot of you read the title of this blog, sighed out loud, placed your head firmly in your hands and said “Not another blog about CV tips”. But I’m sorry, I’m a recruiter, and this is something that I had to get out of the way now so I can focus.
I recently posted a blog on psychometric testing to find out what readers’ opinions were on them, particularly when they are used as part of the recruitment process. There were a number of different points raised by the post so I thought I’d share the results in a follow up piece. The feedback.
Recruitment discrimination A couple of weeks ago a close client of mine got in touch to say that as of immediate effect they would be changing their shortlisting process when selecting candidates for interview.

Everyone loves puppies…or at least I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t have a bit of a ‘soft spot’ for them. Soft and cuddly, they bring a smile to the face of almost everyone. Even when having a bad day, a puppy picture here or a puppy video there will sort you out! B2C.
Our Marketing Recruitment Review & Salary Survey has just been released! And it’s better than ever – even if we do say so ourselves… Here are four interesting findings that feature in our Marketing Recruitment Review & Salary Survey 2016 – hopefully they’ll give you an idea as to what your fellow marketers, or your employees, are.

A Layman’s Guide to Being a Nice Company to Interview With Having worked in recruitment for almost eight years it still amazes me that so many companies spend millions of pounds each year on PR, social media, crisis communications, brand management etc. to keep their image and reputation intact, but pay no attention to the bad.
So…I’m just going to say it. Digital professionals are always banging on about why they should be paid more for their services and skills. When I first heard this I used to ask myself why, yet having been around digital marketing people for the last few years I completely support what is now, quite.
It seems that over the past few years, and in particular the last few months, controversy has dogged the charity sector. Formerly well-respected and revered pillars of our community have been dragged under the spotlight whilst their practices, policies and sheer existence have been called into question.

Three reasons you shouldn’t write your CV in the third person… What does Brand think about writing a CV in the third person?

This article is actually something a bit different to my usual posts. At Brand, we’re hiring within our Cambridge office and I am using this article to do a bit of promotion. Sorry if you’re looking for marketing insight, which is my usual bag…you may not find it reading this post! But if you –.
