As we take the next steps into the #newnormal, we wanted to provide all our candidates with an update.  As you know, the business is running successfully remotely, but we are now working hard to implement steps for us to safely return to the office and we wanted to share our approach with you.

Our target date for opening the office on a part time basis, is the Monday 6th July 2020.  You will then be able to meet with us virtually or in the office.

Opening Times

From this date, the office opening hours will be 10am – 2pm, Monday through to Friday. And we will still be available, as normal, from 8:30am – 5:30pm, Monday – Thursday and 8:30am – 5pm, on a Friday.

Your Safety

If you do come to visit it us in the office, every care has been taken to ensure your safety.  Clear signage, roped off areas, screens and a strict one candidate only in the office at any time, means you can visit knowing your safety is our priority.  Before we open, you will receive a clear email with labelled images and detailed information about how we plan to keep you safe.

Talk to us your way

Our comprehensive candidate care package is designed to fit in with your life and needs.  You can still meet with us virtually using; Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp and now face-to-face appointments will be offered if no other choice is an option.  All of our paperwork is designed to be completed remotely and returned via email, making it flexible to your needs.

About the author

I oversee all parts of the Octopus machine. From registering candidates to site visits with clients, I love the fast-paced challenge of it all. Leading by example, we are not just recruiters; we are sourcing advisors, which means we are able to act as a friend who can efficiently guide you through productive recruitment drives.

I love being a crazy cat lady, whilst taking mindful moments and balancing on my head! Check out my blog about using mindfulness to drive productivity. Yoga anyone?
