Swimming Through Summer at Firefish

We're halfway through the year already and there's been lots happening in the Aquarium! Here's what we've been up to:


This is how Firefish helps you recruit more temps

There’s never been a better time to recruit temps: As much as 41% of employers are now using temporary agency workers – that’s a 9% increase on last year alone! In light of this increased demand for agency temps, we decided to run an unofficial 'Temp Recruitment Month’ here at Firefish Software including:


- A Crowdcast with Paul Dewick from Boomerang Funding on how to make your temp desk more profitable

- An eBook with all the information you need to ensure your temp desk is a main contender on what is a very competitive temp recruitment market

- And finally, a webinar to demonstrate how Firefish is primed to support you in running the most efficient temp desk possible. Contact us here and we'll send you the recording.


And there are more webinars to come, the next one being focused on how Firefish can support you in Sales Recruitment. Get in touch to register so you don't miss out!


Getting our candles ready

Our award winning blog is turning 8 years next month, and we want to celebrate this with you! If we’ve been lucky enough to meet you at a recruitment event, you’ve probably had a chance to sample our famous Firefish sweets. Now you’ve got the chance to get your fins on a VIP bag, along with some other Firefish goodies. Just have a browse of our blog, subscribe (if you haven’t already) and share your favourite on LinkedIn. Be sure to tag the Firefish LinkedIn page so we can enter you into the prize draw.

Fish of the month

Each month we recognise someone who has gone above and beyond to demonstrate the Firefish values and made our lives at Firefish better. It's usually closely contended and this month was no exception. It was so hard to decide this month that we have not just one but two Fish of the month - our Social Media Superstar Christine and our Client Success Champion Ryan.


Ryan only joined us 3 months ago and has already been bringing new agencies on board, getting them swimming successfully with lots of great feedback. Christine keeps everyone up-to-date with what's happening in the Aquarium and has really stepped up marketing efforts, so we really struggled to choose who should win and decided to award them both a voucher for a meal on us.  One each, I mean!  Congratulations guys, and thank you so much for all your hard work!

We're still growing!

With GDPR and lots of new stuff on the way, it was time to top up our tank. We had a really great response for our adverts and were really impressed by all the candidates we met. It was also mentioned frequently during the interview process that candidates had heard brilliant things about the company, the product, and had been really impressed with the GDPR content that was being produced. We're so glad that our hard work is not only winning us clients and awards, but is also making people really want to work here.


We've added two new Fish to our shoal this month, Anthony and Andrew, both in our Beta Team. They have four and six years' development experience respectively and have already settled in nicely. Welcome to the team - we're delighted you've joined us!
