Emma Burke our Associate Director has recruited into agencies for over a decade now. With 2020 being like no other she gives us her roundup of how this year looked for her department, candidates and clients. 


There is hope on the horizon

With the promising news of vaccines, and the end of this in sight, with a new way of working remotely and the effectiveness of working from home, I feel extremely positive going into 2021 and so proud of how we’re coming out of this devastating time.

There have been casualties along the way, and I’m so saddened to have lost agency clients who have had to close their North West operations; but on the whole, those people who had been made redundant have secured new roles.

I look forward to catching up with everyone in the New Year, once we’ve all had a well-earned break. Thank you to all of our clients, who have trusted us to deliver throughout an incredibly difficult time, and we’re thankful that things are slowly getting back to some kind of normality.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and well-deserved break, and catch up with you next year.
