WOW! Workhappy Open Week 2017
This summer, in anticipation of the peak season (run up to Christmas), we pioneered WOW! week in all our branches, making a big splash in our communities across Central England.

The response to WOW! week was fantastic. Across our branch network we had over 1200 new people register with us in just one week. This is no mean feat given it’s a very tight candidate market these days. It really gives us a flying start going into the peak season.

During our busy WOW! week we ran CV Advice sessions and workshops, Interview Tips workshops and one-to-one “Pow-Wows” with our expert, specialist sector consultants.

When we say We Place People First, that’s not just about the speed with which we place people into a role and fill employers vacancies. It’s also about really getting to know our Candidates, how we look after them – and how our teams always go the extra mile to make them feel part of the wider Workforce family.
