The alarm rings
The Alarm is set for 6.40am, but I can guarantee my little boy has woken up before then. So realistically it's a 6.15am wake up; change a nappy, 10 minutes of cuddles and play time and then jump in the shower. I leave the house just after 7am and get to the office around 8 (always with a LEON breakfast and coffee in hand). I calculated the other day that I must have spent around £600 there in the last 6 months. Don’t tell the Wife!

This summer we were joined by 17 year old Taylor Claxton, who chose to do a one week placement with our Reading office.

His placement at Stott and May was a great opportunity to experience different work options, and get first hand knowledge of working within one of the  leading talent search firms.

The alarm rings…
At 6.45am (if it’s a Friday 6.30am), I very slowly get out of bed, stumble into the shower, get ready as quick as possible and head out the door around 7.20am to get to the bus stop. I’m a massive bus fan, I don’t like the tube. It’s cheaper, you get fresh air and I get on at the first stop, so I’m guaranteed a seat. I can peacefully go through my emails without competing with sweaty armpits.

Are job descriptions one for all, or all for one (gender)?

Posted by Stacey Roper on Jul 18, 2018 11:25:05 AM

Diversity is (quite rightly) an incredibly hot topic in the talent markets that we operate in. Whether it’s security, software engineering, data or technology sales the question hiring managers are asking is the same: how can we attract a more diverse workforce? In a recent interview we conducted with Jane Frankland (CISO Adviser, Author & Champion for Women in Security) she stated “diversity makes for a strategic and competitive advantage. It’s not just about recruiting diversity for diversity’s sake.” Studies show that diverse teams are safer and higher performing due to a more balanced perspective on risk and reward.
