#NewYearNewBlog

…better late than never they say! So where have we been…no excuses for the delay we have just been swamped with all the great new companies and candidates we have the pleasure of working with over the past month or so that there has been less time to keep in touch. We will endeavour to fix this ASAP.

The office dog is a little more settled as long as she’s fed/stroked/walked and played with hourly! We are also still working on the changes to the new policies involving the Data Protection laws so keep a look out for changes in the T’s&C’s although we will drop a post when it’s all set. Hoping you all had a great holiday and an even better New Year; recruitment articles assure us that we will be having a positive year although it doesn’t mention any dog issues.
