Where Did the Summer Go?!

There’s been no slowing down for summer here in the Aquarium! Here's a peak at what we’ve been up to in August:


Firefish Future of Recruitment Crowdcast


This month’s Crowdcast focused on Agency vs. In-House Recruitment: Always a Case of Us vs. Them?


We were joined by Euan McNair, Lead Talent Acquisition at Standard Life, and Michael Phair, Associate Director at recruitment agency Be-IT.  Both Euan and Michael are extremely highly regarded in their sectors and have built solid, lasting relationships between in-house and agency teams, so it was great to hear their opinions and advice on working together to forge successful relationships. 


Don't worry if you missed the Crowdcast: you can watch it here!

Google for Jobs Playbook


You probably know that Google recently launched their new Google for Jobs feature.  Their aim is to better connect job seekers with positions and companies that are relevant to them, which is pretty handy for us recruiters as that's our aim, too! 


To help you get a better understanding of how Google for Jobs works and how you can begin to reap the benefits, we've published our very own Google for Jobs playbook - make sure you download your free copy!

Fresh new Jobs page!


Our wonderful web team have been super busy creating new template options and building sites for Fish friends old and new, but luckily for us they managed to find some time to give our own jobs page a gorgeous makeover! 


We love the new look and feedback from candidates has been massively positive too - a jobs page is only effective if it's engaging and easy for potential applicants to use, so we're delighted to hear that our candidates are loving their journey. 


You can check out our jobs page here, and if you're thinking of shaking things up a bit with your own website just drop a line to your Customer Success Champion to talk through your ideas and options.

Fish of the Month!


Our Fish do a cracking job all year round, but each month we recognise the person who's really living our values and has made a significant contribution to the Aquarium. 


Our Fish of the Month for August was Katie, our Content Editor-in-Chief.  Managing all the content we create and share here at Firefish is no mean feat, but Katie always makes time to help out other members of the team - and always with a smile on her face! 


Well done and thank you, Katie!

Now that August is done and dusted we're looking forward to a slamming September!  Have a great month, and we'll be back soon to tell you all about it!
