End of Year Celebrations
Interlink Recruitment17 December 2019
As we approach the end of another year, embracing the festive season, it’s time for us all to come together and celebrate. And we’ve been doing just that over the last couple of weeks here at Interlink, including our end of year team trip to Amsterdam!
Recruit before Christmas
You might think things start to slow down in December, but our recruitment services are still as busy as ever at this time of year. Candidates looking for a new start in the New Year will start submitting their CVs now to get ahead of the rush that hits in January. At the same time, we see law firms start promoting new roles in December in an attempt to secure a hire before the new year starts, ahead of the competition. It can be a crucial time for completing those discussions and booking in interviews, before firms (and ourselves) close down for the holiday period.
Getting the team spirit
Despite the busy period, and that includes recruiting new staff to join our own team, we always take the time to get into the Christmas spirit. Since the month of December started, we’ve had our Secret Santa afternoon, which saw some fun and thoughtful gifts exchange hands between the team. We’ve also had our Christmas jumper day and the chance to watch a Christmas movie on the big screen, in return for a donation to our 2019 charity of the year, Francis House Children’s Hospice. Our staff members all voted to watch Elf this year, which we enjoyed with a few drinks and Christmas chocolates!
Trip to Amsterdam
You may have seen from our social media posts that we were all in Amsterdam for a couple of days last week. Yes, our annual team trip was another memorable success, and a great chance for everyone to wind down, relax and enjoy a couple of work-free days. It was cold but we wrapped up warm to enjoy a group boat trip through the city and on our first night, we all met up for a fantastic meal together where we sampled different pasta dishes. We then spent a couple of hours at the very chilled out W Lounge. Our hotel was in the heart of Amsterdam’s old town, making it central enough for the team to go off and do what they wanted the rest of the time we were there.
Events throughout the year
Our trip to Amsterdam was the last of a few social events we had throughout the year. From a night at Bongo’s Bingo in Manchester, to our regular Summer day out at the races, we’ve also rewarded staff with lunches and evenings out. Working in recruitment can be fast-paced and around the clock, so it’s important we take the time to socialise as a team and celebrate our successes.
New Year, new start
We’re looking forward to the New Year ahead and the opportunities it brings us a business, and that includes welcoming new faces to Interlink. We’ll continue to have plenty of social activities to look forward to in 2020, as well as sponsorship evenings and fundraising events. For all our consultants, we offer a clear path for career progression, a competitive and fair commission structure and the tools needed to make a success of a recruitment career. If there’s one team to join in 2020, it’s #TeamInterlink.
