Day in the Life Scott

Day in the life of: Scott Caithness

“What’s it like working as a recruiter?” or more perhaps more directly “What does a recruiter actually do?” These are two questions commonly asked about recruitment agencies. Although their main aim is the same, many agencies approach things differently. Here’s a day in the life of Scott Caithness, our Marketing and Comms Consultant, going behind the scenes to share the details of how we spend our time.

Job interviews – how to nail non-verbal communication

A good interview. It’s not just about the words coming out of your mouth. All your non-verbal messages and body language will tell a story of their own, helping the interviewer make up their mind about you without you almost being aware of it.

International Womens Day

International Women's Day at Meraki

Today is International Women's Day. It is a day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The first international women’s day was held in 1911 and we’ve come a long way since then. It’s quite a common question to ask why we still need International Women’s day in 2019 but the power balance (both in work and in life) is still male heavy and it’s great to take the opportunity to promote gender equality.
