  • FRESH FRIDAYS: Women and STEM - The numbers aren’t quite adding up

    Posted 24th October 2014 by Bryony Cullen and Karolina Dirgelaite

    Last Tuesday saw an epic 50 hours worth of celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) - otherwise known as Ada Lovelace Day. Beginning in the eastern most country in the world, Kiribati, and ending in American Samoa, the day aims to raise the profile of women in STEM, a worryingly small minority group in the UK at the moment. Here at FreshMinds we think it's so important to have an equal gender balance through our doors, so thought we'd delve into this issue...

  • Have you got the bounce back factor?

    Posted 06th October 2014 by Lucy Kemp and Sara Murfitt

    Along with the rest of the nation, the FreshMinds team have been gripped by the new Channel 4 series "Educating the East End". A few episodes in, we've noticed a definite theme emerging - the importance of building up resilience. At Frederick Bremer School the focus is on ensuring that their pupils are prepared for the challenges that life will inevitably throw at them. This was perfectly illustrated when a pupil, after being rejected by a top drama school, was told by the deputy head "Babe, these (obstacles) make us more resilient!"

At the FreshMinds' offices you'll find brightly coloured pillars, vibrant pictures adorning the walls of our meeting rooms and a recent influx of exercise balls - but we still think it's time we freshen things up...

  • FRESH FRIDAYS: There’s no ‘I’ in team…

    Posted 08th August 2014 by Keri Link

    One of the most overused phrases within the world of recruitment for me is ‘must be able to work in a team’, or ‘strong team player'. In fact, it's rare not to see this on a job spec these days. But why is it so important and do people really know what makes a good team player?
