I recently collobarted with Just Moved To – a fantastic website for people new to┬áthe North – in writing a post about Working in Manchester and what to expect. I moved to Manchester back in late 2015 and have spent the last two years working in the recruitment sector! Hopefully, by this point, I know a little bit about the Manchester employment scene. If you’re new to the Northern Powerhouse or just wondering what the market is looking like, hopefully this post can help you out!

Interviews, eh? Everyone hates them. Stressful, nerve-wracking, and you never really come away feeling like you really represented the true you.

They don’t have to be like that. I promise.

I’ve been on both sides of the interview process – the interviewee and the interviewer. I’ve worked in recruitment in a few guises new for about two years, both as a recruitment consultant and as part of an internal recruitment team and I can promise you – pinky swear – they don’t have to be torture.
