The Power of Positive Podcasts | Weekly Wrap Up

The Power of Positive Podcasts, the daily commute and well being If you only listen to mainstream news broadcasters it’s so easy to be dragged into all the negativity. Rarely do you get a good news story.  The world seems like such a negative and dangerous place and waiting to hear what the latest Trump tweet has been each morning, quite frankly, has worn me down.  It’s important to stay informed but how do you avoid all the doom and…

A Right Royal Affair | Weekly Wrap Up

A Right Royal Affair | Weekly Wrap Up

Not everyone gets the ‘happy ever after’ fairy tale.  Meghan has not clearly had it all her own way but she seems to have landed on her feet for now anyway, as she embarks on a very different life.  What she does have is security of her future, as much as a person can rely on. Her fortunes are unlikely to change now, unlike that of so many women of a certain age who suddenly find themselves starting over. We…

An Action Packed Week | Weekly Wrap Up

An action packed week that began with the Federal Budget on Tuesday night, massive street protests disrupting Melbourne’s CBD demanding an increase to the minimum wage amongst other issues, ending the week with an apocalyptic weather forecast putting a definitive end to the sublime autumnal weather that has kept on giving. Squeezed into all of this was a refresher seminar on employment terminations, the good, the bad and the ugly. What bubbled to the top with this update was the…

A Little Bit of History | Weekly Wrap Up

A Little Bit of History | Weekly Wrap Up

Fun Fact One of our lovely clients Alison from Green Energy Trading shared this little piece of history: “In the early 1950’s when my dad first moved to Melbourne as a teacher he used to frequent a very ‘swish’ continental café called The Hoddle which sold ‘European food’ . He always fondly remembered this foray into the delights of Italian culture. As it happened, I was telling an old Jane Franklin Hall colleague (who was a Melb boy and he…

Another busy week that has seen a surge in activity across both Perm and Temp divisions and with the ANZAC Day holiday in the middle, this past week has flown by for most of us.

Apparently compared to your male counterpart, as a female turning your talents…

It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. What does ANZAC stand for? ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day. Why is this day special to Australians?…

Spoilt For Topics | Weekly Wrap Up

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market. I have chopped and changed with regard what I was going to write about this week.  It started out with a Commonwealth Games theme.

Wellness | Weekly Wrap Up

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market. Who knew that all it would take would be a jaffle-maker? Seriously, the humble jaffle-maker has been the corner stone of our own internal wellness program and of course a few other things besides, but essentially, this has delivered the most bang-for-buck so far.  Wellness programs are de rigueur aren’t they? My LinkedIn news feed is full of…

Sounds a little like a social experiment I know, but…

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market.

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market.

Watch This Space | Weekly Wrap Up

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market.

Personal Brand | Weekly Wrap Up

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market. Personal brand is so important. Whether you are a recruiter, hiring manager or applicant, throughout the recruitment process all three participants are tested.  And usually it’s just the simple things, like returning a call, turning up on time or just turning up,  it’s giving feedback and saying or committing to what you said that you were going to…

The ‘gig’ Economy | Weekly Wrap-up

Rusher Roger’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of Rusher Rogers, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market. There is a lot of talk about the ‘gig’ economy, which is basically hiring expertise in for the life cycle of a specific project, so a contractor if you like (so very 2017), only rebranded, so very NOW.  Have we seen a significant shift away from more traditional permanent ongoing roles in favor of contract roles?  Not really….
