Phew …… What a Year it has Been!

18th December 2017

Phew …. 2017 what a year you have been!

As Christmas is fast approaching and 2017 draws to a close, it’s time for reflection and looking back on what a year we’ve had!

Whether the General Election, ongoing Brexit negotiations or the inauguration of President Trump, we are living through a time of uncertainty!  I think this has had an impact on our industry which in return has affected us as an agency – it’s fair to say 2017 has been a challenging year for The Recruitment Room and our industry in general but we are still here to live another year!

As always though we have fought our way through the crap and have met some fantastic, very talented candidates and new clients along the way!

2017 started off with the very high profile placement for world renowd fashion designer Stella McCartney’s Head Office Executive Chef based in London, Paul Mason.  Such a great high profile placement and client for us!

It was also a year that saw us exclusively recruiting for The Laundrette’s latest new opening in Newcastle (early 2017), Leelex for their much anticipated Ginstitute/The Distillery in Portobello (January) and Headrow House latest opening, The Boathouse in Leeds (April).  Other opening recruitment this year included, Neighbourhood (Leeds), Reserve Js and Rudding Park’s exclusive Spa.
