They Can Talk The Talk, Can They Walk The Walk?

Finding the best candidate can be difficult at the best of times, (after all, the interview situations is a million miles away from what the day-to-day job will actually look like!) but now we’re living in Covid-times, the process has reached a new level of challenge.

Employment Law Changes Copy

With the number of coronavirus infection rates rising across the UK, we are seeing localised areas being forced back into lockdown and nationwide changes to socialising rules.
