2016 was an interesting, and it turns out highly successful, year for The Recruitment Company.  Geoff Millar, our MD, presented his first AGM since being promoted to Managing Director last year.  This years event was held at The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney and included a full tour of the museum for the team, a presentation by work renowned high performance coach Dr Sean Richardson and a full breakdown of our highs, lows, successes and failures for 2016.  

Geoff then rolled out his plans for 2017 which look pretty amazing - watch out Sydney!!

2016 has definitely vindicated Geoff's appointment…

St Andrews Day

Main Image

Happy St Andrews day to all our Scottish contractors and customers!  Yesterday saw the team celebrate St Andrews day in the office.  Our Scottish contingent was made to feel slightly homesick with lashings and lashings of Irn-Bru, tea cakes and Scottish shortbread in the office.  They also got to have a sing along to a 6 hour playlist of Scottish music including about 3 hours of rock classics played on the bagpipes.  The rest of the team weren't quite as keen on this part of the celebration but the shortbread and Irn-Bru more than made up for it.
