All Is Fair in Love, House-Mate Hunting and Recruitment

All Is Fair in Love, House-Mate Hunting and Recruitment

So just to be clear, I’m not all that familiar with Tinder. Obviously, I’ve heard of it but full disclosure: I had to Google what swiping left and right meant. So, when I came across an article on Tinder For Recruitment, I was intrigued. Working in recruitment we are always on the lookout for new ways to source and find talent. How can you create a pool of talent that is selective enough while ensuring you’re not competing against everyone around…

One of the Greatest Change-Makers in Non Profit

One of the Greatest Change-Makers in Non Profit

With over 20 years recruiting for the sector, many ask us what has been one of the greatest change-makers over this period of time? The answer is technology and the all-important digital footprint. There is no doubt that technology defines how Talent engages with an organisation and how an organisation engages with Talent. Tech goes hand-in-hand with Talent attraction and engagement.  It is critical in communicating values and mission and can be achieved efficiently and effectively across multiple platforms. Rusher…

Is your workplace set up to build wellness warriors?

Holding Out For A Shero

Holding Out For A Shero

Every now and then I come across an article that really gets my attention. ‘Companies with women in leadership roles crush the competition’ from Business Insider is one such article. It tackled the importance of gender diversity in corporate leadership. Despite the evidence of studies showing the positive change in having more women in executive positions, and how this leads to better performance, “the percentage of women in leadership roles is still frustratingly low, and it isn’t changing.” This got me thinking. How do we get…

Digital Fundraisers…Do We Believe All The Hype? | Weekly Wrap Up

Digital Fundraisers…Do We Believe All The Hype? | Weekly Wrap Up

FACT: Tech savvy fundraisers are in high demand. But what exactly is a digital fundraiser and do you actually need one? Isn’t it just generating revenue through digital channels? And is there such a thing as tech savvy people who get fundraising?   Is digital just the latest shiny new thing? Is there is substance behind the demand for digital fundraisers? Could this just be a distraction or is this the direction fundraising needs to take? So many questions and…

It’s not you. It’s your Resume. | 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. This week I have been knee deep screening technical applicants for a couple of support roles I am recruiting for. This can be challenging in itself, but what has really stood out for me and what would be extraordinarily helpful, is an explanation of what each organisation does.  Sounds simple doesn’t it? This vital piece of information creates a world of difference. Sometimes we can…

Discovering Your Neurological Blueprint

Discovering Your Neurological Blueprint

Earlier this week, when I was not at all searching for the latest recap of the Bachelorette trying to keep myself on top of current news and world events, I deviated from the steady decline of our political landscape and came across an article on ‘Your Amazing Neurological Design.’ Dr Andre Vermeulen writes that “anyone responsible for identifying talent, developing talent, and improving performance should strengthen their understanding of neurological dominance.” Personally I find this fascinating. I don’t quite have…

Why Should Your Workplace be Millennial-friendly?

Why Should Your Workplace be Millennial-friendly?

Like most elder siblings, I was both thrilled and envious in equal measure when my younger brother called me up to tell me about the first week of his Masters in Crisis Management (he wants to, and probably will, save the world). The conversation then turned to the job he recently left and he sent me this article; “this I exactly why I quit my job”. Being a millennial myself, I have no idea whether society has ever been so obsessed…

How Temps Are Unexplored Opportunities For Your Business

How Temps Are Unexplored Opportunities For Your Business

After a hectic week at my desk, it’s worth reflecting on some of life’s bigger questions: Who am I? What is my destiny?  What are temps for? Seriously, though, what are temps for? Because ‘reception cover’ or ‘a-hand-with-that-backlog-from-when-we-went-paperless-in-2014’ are barely scratching the surface of how temps can help support and expand your business. If you’re not sold, or are used to being sold on temps based on their typing-speed, knowledge of Excel or years of experience within an administrative role,…

The Evolution Of Gender Bias

The Evolution Of Gender Bias

In the recruitment world, gender bias is to us what fame is to the Kardashians. It goes hand in hand and after a while it becomes harder to separate truth from fiction. Gender bias, be it unconscious or otherwise is just an aspect of the recruitment process that is as prevalent as how much experience you’ve had or what salary you’re looking for. Being on the receiving end of a client brief when it becomes increasingly obvious what they are…
