Every industry has its share of underhand people. It seems a fact of life that once there is money involved someone, somewhere, will try to find a way to get it without doing a good job. Sadly, the recruitment industry also has had and probably continues to have, it’s share of those who indulge in everything from sloppy professionalism through to sharp practice and even downright fraudulent activity.

In case you haven’t heard, there is a law due to be implemented in May next year that changes the way data personal data is collected, stored and used. It will have an impact on almost all business large or small, and it could change the way we do business in recruitment. [Read more…]
There are times in the year when it is good to take stock of your life. We tend to immediately think of the new year as being the point where we should consider our aims because we focus on the tradition of new year resolutions. [Read more…]
Whenever graduate employment is under discussion, there seems to be one comment that always shows up. It is along the lines of ‘Education doesn’t train people to work in industry, and they can’t do the jobs we need’ or something similar. [Read more…]
We have all at some point been in a workplace where there is a feeling of negativity about the place. [Read more…]
We often refer to things as being a marathon. It’s a convenient way of describing something that took a while or got to be quite hard to complete. If we have had a difficult journey home, it becomes a marathon, or it takes a marathon effort to get ourselves packed for the big summer holiday. Sometimes though, I wonder if that word is used a little bit too lightly and I suspect the people taking part in the London marathon a few weeks ago would probably agree. [Read more…]
Recruiting is one of the most challenging, rewarding, fulfilling, and exciting of careers. Like most jobs, it requires the right person with the right mix of attitude and aptitude for the role, but if you are that person, then you will not only make a living from being a recruiter, but you will make a career out of it.

The first day of spring has officially been and gone. Although 2017 officially starts in January of course, for many people, Spring is really when they start to think about the year ahead. [Read more…]
February is the month of love. Here at Personnel Selection, we are possibly a bit less cynical about that than some people. It can actually be a very positive thing to sit back and take a reminder of the things in life you genuinely love. [Read more…]
Big congratulations to Michelle Lewis and Sonia Barton at our Portsmouth branch for their part in making another candidate very happy!
The whole team at Portsmouth deserve a huge pat on the back for all their hard work in recent months…here’s to continued success !
Here’s what one happy candidate has to say about us –
“I cannot praise Personnel Selection in Portsmouth highly enough. I was contacted by Michelle Lewis after she had found my CV online and we immediately had a really friendly phone call, followed by an appointment to register with the agency a few days later, by which time an interview had already been arranged for me. The contact by email, phone and text, including good luck wishes for the interview, really made me feel all the staff were interested and wanted me to succeed. Everyone at the agency was welcoming, friendly and faultlessly professional, and genuinely pleased to hear that I had got the job. I had been looking for work for just over four months, with no success, and realise now that it wouldn’t even have taken four weeks if I had gone to Personnel Selection straight away! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for work, or seeking to change their job, as the level of support and assistance is fantastic. My two contacts were Michelle, and Sonia, and both of them were warm, friendly and professional. 5 Star Rating! Thanks”
