  • Should you accept this job offer simply because it pays more money?

    Should you take the job just because it pays more money?

    Whether you were actively looking for a new position or not, you have found yourself in a situation where you have been offered a new role. What's more, the role pays far more than your current one for doing pretty much the same thing, so on the face of it, the choice seems obvious - go where the money is.

  • If you have ambition you need a career mentor:

    The truth about finding a career mentor

  • Our CEO, Alistair Cox, shares how some leaders are still getting the basics wrong:

    Are you getting these basics wrong?

    When was the last time you saw a boss demanding to review even the most basic of emails or memos before sending, barking orders or timing people's lunch breaks down to the last minute? This was an all-too-common scene when I first started out in my career.

  • Is your employer brand putting off potential employees?

    Are you selling your employer brand short?

    As an employer, it should come as no surprise that as soon as a candidate has an interview scheduled with you, they will automatically do three things: 1. Visit your website 2. Scour the employee reviews on sites such as Glassdoor and 3. Ask their recruiter and contacts what you are like to work for.
