I had the great honor of being interviewed by Samad Aidane for Guerilla Project Manager. Catch the interview on-line at http://www.guerrillaprojectmanagement.com/care-feeding-of-business-analysts .
Most weeks we like to hold back the number of blog posts here at the Camel, but this recent revelation couldn’t wait. We have recently received at Arras People the latest monthly edition of the UK Report on Jobs . The report is a monthly publication produced by Markit and sponsored by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG. It takes data from Recruitment Consultancies across the UK (including Arras People) to provide a snapshot of the market conditions for the previous month across the market as a whole. It is safe to say that at a very broad level, at present, there still remains a great deal of uncertainty within the jobs market, borne out by the fact that in July staff appointments fell, albeit at a slower pace than previous months. Something we have to bear in mind, however, is that we are currently in the middle of the notoriously quiet summer period for recruitment. Key stakeholders including hiring managers and potential candidates are going away for their summer holidays and / or are concerned more with taking a well-earned break as opposed to finding that next opportunity.

We’re very proud to be able to offer you a new social media tool for interacting with Arras People. That’s right, folks: we’re finally tapping the YouTube barrel! Over the last year, Arras People have offered vodcasts regarding presentations made by our capable careers consultants and directors . With our newest version, Lindsay Scott and I hooked up some webcams at our desks, headed over to Google Hangouts, and talked more at length about some of the issues raised in today’s edition of Project Management Tipoffs, “ Hot Trends in Project Management Recruitment “. Behind the strength of this video and others below, we have now launched the arraspeople YouTube channel , updating regularly with new findings, research and presentations regarding project management. Below is a sampling of what you can find there now. First up, from our own Michael Hides and his September 2011 presentation about improving the project management job interview process.

We had a great holiday. We went from the UK to the States (hence the gap of a few weeks in posts). For part of the holiday we hired a car. Now my geography of the Rhode Island, Cape Cod and Boston areas is pretty poor so I was rather hoping the hire company supplied a map. Such old fashioned … Read More >
