Competence Hierarchy adapted from Noel Burch by Igor Kokcharov compressor

Do you have hapless colleagues who consistently underperform yet believe themselves to be supremely competent? Frustrating as it is, there is in fact scientific proof that the least skilled of us at a particular task are  more likely  to believe in our own aptitude to perform said task. This is best demonstrated in the delightful tale of McArthur Wheeler, a Pittsburgh bank robber who was astonished to be identified on CCTV footage as he sincerely believed that by smearing lemon juice on his face, he would be invisible to security cameras! Sad yet amusingly, true.

RMS ToDoList

If the latest research is to be believed, as we age our ability to function at peak brain efficiency seriously declines if we work over a 40 hour week. It is even suggested that anyone over 40 should work an optimal 3 day week. Well, if only that were an option financially, we would happily concur with the research and reduce hours immediately.

As this is an unlikely option for the majority of the working population, how can we become more efficient in less time?

Like many London temp agencies, RMS Recruitment keep a close eye on the expectations for both candidates and clients when it comes to the hours worked. In 1930, economist John Maynard Keynes predicted that by the year 2030 the British population would be working a 15-hour week, and yet here we are working ever-longer hours it would seem; but does that mean greater productivity?

Many of us put off updating our social media profiles, too busy “consuming" social media to make the time to polish our online profiles. However, in the same way that you wouldn’t leave the house for an important job interview without perfecting your outfit, hair and makeup, no more should you even contemplate starting a job search without creating a “polished” online presence. This is more important on LinkedIn than on any other platform – here’s why!

Job acceptance criteria

In much the same way that candidates massage their CVs to suit a particular job, employers need to have a clear idea of what their top candidates will be expecting to see in a job offer. One of the first things to identify will be the necessary “job acceptance criteria”. Candidates who have multiple job offers on the table will have a very specific set of criteria that will determine whether or not they accept an offer, and the better you are at identifying those “deal-breakers” up front the better chance you have of securing the right candidate, according to top recruitment agencies in London.

"Are you ready with your elevator pitch?" ask London temp agencies

RMS ElevatorPitch

You might reasonably ask “What is an elevator pitch when it’s at home?” Well as you probably guessed, there’s some good old Americanisation going on there, but if we were to call it a lift pitch it wouldn’t have quite the same impact would it?

So what are we talking about? Well in a nutshell the elevator pitch assumes that you get in the lift with your boss, or the boss of a company you’d love to work for, and you’ve got the time it takes to get to the top floor (say 30 secs to a minute) to sell yourself for that job you’re after.

Why an elevator pitch is even more important for temps

London temp agency, RMS Recruitment thinks a polished elevator pitch is essential for a temp looking to move to a permanent role within the same company.
