Doggy Day in the Park

Did you know that International Dog Day falls at the end of August?

We certainly do, and what better way to celebrate than to have a doggy day out in Glasgow? Some of our Fish came together to mark International Dog Day at Rouken Glen Park. It was fin-tastic to see all our Shoalmates and our furry four-legged friends together!

Thankfully the weather held out and the dogs – and humans – had a great time!

What day should we celebrate next?

Ready to Insp-Hire

Our Head of Talent Vicki Moir and Amy Hollingsworth, our Employer Branding Executive, had a fin-ominal experience at the Smart STEMs InspiHire event, where they connected with budding tech leaders of tomorrow. The event served as a platform for industry experts to motivate young minds and highlight the promising tech careers within companies like Firefish Software.

Smart STEMs, who work to bridge the education-industry gap through events and workshops like Insp-Hire, made us feel so welcome. It was amazing to see the variety of companies and professionals there to engage with the attendees and get them excited about a future career in the tech sector.

Vicki Moir said: “Amy and I had a great time at the Insp-Hire event hosted by Nine Twenty Recruitment and SmartSTEMs. We were speaking with the amazing next generation of tech superstars about the kind of careers that companies like Firefish Software can offer and were both blown away by the knowledge that these young people already have (age group 4-14). We left so excited about the future of the industry.”
