I alight at London Victoria Station after a short train journey and make my way through the hustle and bustle of the early morning commute. I ask myself the key question… “Is it raining?”
If the answer is yes, I head on down into the underground to make the 1 stop journey to Green Park and deal with slightly less of the rain. If the answer is no, I get to delight in the short walk past Buckingham Palace, through Green Park and into Mayfair, one of the most exclusive areas in the world.
Our new sales office is tucked away behind the Japanese Embassy just off of Brick Lane and working in Mayfair is a brand new experience for me. I have spent all of my career working outside of the capital and while the rest of the south isn’t completely devoid of culture and beauty, Mayfair really is something else. Every building looks like it could regale a thousand stories about the aristocracy and elitism of the past 400 years and if I didn’t have a sales office to run, I would sit and listen for hours.
Amongst its beautiful landscape, its spectacular architecture, its sports cars, and its million pound apartments are Mayfairs’ eateries. My undoing. There is a story that I may include in a future blog involving lunch for one, some couscous and a £43 bill, which led to me now packing a lunch every morning for fear of slowly spiralling into bankruptcy.
As our team grows, I will encourage them to take in and enjoy the fact that we work in one of finest areas in the world, steeped in history, within a short walk of the house of our majesty the queen but I will also warn them about the dangers of ordering food from a place where they don’t print the prices on the menu.

I have worked with That Recruit for the last four months to find suitable candidates for Abacare, our award winning care business. That Recruit recognise the need for our business to attract quality candidates to care for our service users in the comfort of their own home. I have found them to be helpful and reactive to our business needs and look forward to our continued working relationship.
Quantity of applicant received was tremendous. Required a lot of sifting but evident that the advert reached a broad spectrum of candidates.
We are happy with the service and quality of applicants.
We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
The process was easy to manage and we received a high number of responses.
Thanks again for your fantastic service don’t change anything it works great!
