  1. The power of summer reflection

    Over the summer months, we find ourselves getting away on holiday or enjoying the better weather closer to home. The kids are off school and we’re out of our usual routine. We get time to relax and see things differently. It’s a breath of fresh air and it can be reinvigorating.

    We get so caught up in the business of life, that we don’t stop to make sure we’re on the right trajectory whether it be with our careers or company direction. The summer months are a good time to reflect on (or even reinvent) the plans you have.

    Ask yourself: What’s the bigger picture? Are there dreams and ambitions that you’re yet to explore? What are the practical aspects that might improve personal or business life?

    The summer is a very good time to review your recruitment plans and prepare to see what talent is out there.

    Relaxed work

    With many managers taking annual leave and juggling childcare responsibilities over the summer; it becomes easier for potential candidates to research new roles and speak to recruiters unnoticed.

    Recharge your career

    The sunshine helps lift our mood and resolve to embrace new challenges. It’s the mindset that leads to refreshed enthusiasm and being open to new opportunities and a job change.

    Fresh talent

    The summer is also the time for graduation and celebrating success. This period signifies an injection of fresh new talent. Having successfully completed a degree, graduates are ready to work and are actively searching for a suitable position.
