In today’s highly competitive field of secretarial agencies in London, both candidates and clients need to keep their eye on developing trends in the recruiting process. Being the first in the field to use an emerging tactic gives you an edge over competitors; conversely, not keeping up with the latest trends puts you at risk of using outdated methods. Here are some expert predictions for the trends that are likely to come to the fore in 2016.
The online job market already involves a high level of social networking that works by using talent and professional background to find jobs for job seekers as well as identifying talented candidates for employers. It is matchmaking on a professional level enabled by the growth of social media.
As our candidates and clients start to head off for the festive break, RMS Recruitment would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and thank you for partnering with us in 2015. We can only be the top London recruitment agency we aspire to be by having the best candidates and clients in London. We firmly believe we do and are grateful for your loyalty!
A whopping 66% of the nations’s employees will be working over the Christmas period with 1 in 3 working on Christmas Day itself, according to a recent survey. For some, the thought of missing out on the brussel sprouts proves too much and nearly 20% admitted to having pulled a festive sickie. Have you been tempted? The chances are that if you work in recruitment or HR, you have done the opposite and volunteered to cover for a colleague with a young family.
Does your company embrace the office Secret Santa? Are you unsure whether to buy gifts for your colleagues and boss at Christmas? Either way, it can be a minefield, particularly for a new employee unsure of the company policy on gift giving.

Hotly anticipated Christmas card photo shoot
Well the festive season is nearly upon us (or if you believe the adverts, has been for the last month or so) and once again RMS Recruitment’s witty take on the corporate Xmas card has been eagerly anticipated. Everyone has their favourite from the previous cards, whether it be the remake of the Marks and Sparks Xmas ad, to the traffic stopping antics of the Bond St card! This year has been no exception, but for the first time we have decided to film the fun to give you all a glimpse behind the scenes of the photo shoot.
Social Media. Love or hate it, there’s no getting away from it - but ignoring it when it comes to finding a new job or the right candidate is unlikely to be an option in today’s increasingly competitive recruitment market.
Reputable recruitment agencies in West End like RMS Recruitment have to research and work hard to understand the culture of your company so that they can assess what you need in a candidate to help you propel your business forward. This, in turn, will ensure that the candidates you shortlist are all potential good fits in your company.
Everyone knows that securing a quality reference can mean the difference between getting your dream job and being passed over for another candidate. Over one in two employers cite poor references as a reason to withdraw their offer of employment. Don't let your opportunities go to waste just because of a poor reference. There are different ways on how you can secure genuine references and how to be sure that your boss will give you a great reference.
Although all of us will probably lose someone dear to us at some time during our working life, it almost always comes as a shock and while we probably know instinctively what to say to friends and family in their time of need, we often struggle to know how to support a colleague in the office. Death is still a subject to be avoided in the UK and grieving colleagues may take us far outside our comfort zone. What can we do to show the kindness and respect in the office, which would be second nature in our personal lives?
