Having CV struggles?

Do you feel like your CV is just not noticed? Think about it - there are over 65 million people living in the UK yet only 4.1% of these people are unemployed in 2018. With a reduction in unemployment rates it might seem surprising as to why job seekers still find it so difficult to gain consistent responses on their job applications, but with over 2million people still looking for work the competition is still alive and thriving.

5 Questions to ask about your team

Following an extremely successful World Cup campaign, the England squad will surely be coming home. Yes, maybe a little earlier than expected and without the all important golden trophy, but we can’t deny the way the team have brought together a somewhat divided country over the past 4 weeks.
