Divorce Day!

Monday 8th January 2018 marks “divorce day”

• Has the excitement of the office Christmas party finally passed?
• Did you enjoy your Christmas break away from the office more than perhaps you should?
• Have you woken up this morning with a feeling of dread in the pit your stomach?
• Have you started to think about looking at other options?

If you answered yes, to any of the above, then maybe it’s time to divorce your current employer.

Fear not! HoneyPot People can help you - divorce lawyers we are not; however, Specialist Recruitment is what we do best; matchmaking candidates and clients to form long term relationships.

We can help you to severe ties with your current employer, find excitement with a new one, and move on to the next chapter in your career….

Honeypot People awarded Bronze Army Covenant Award!

Congratulations to local recruitment company Honeypot People at being awarded the Bronze Army Covenant award. Salisbury based Recruiters Honeypot People have just received some exciting news, having been awarded the Bronze Army Covenant Award. The Award shows recognition to employers who fully support the employment of Military families and work to support local Army spouses in their search for job opportunities. A spokesman for the MOD said “We would like to thank you for your statement of intent to support defence personnel. The ERS recognises commitment and support from UK employers for defence personnel. The scheme comprises bronze, silver and gold awards for employers who support those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families.” Managing Director Melanie Daly commented ‘As an employer I have an Army Spouse working for me and she is fantastic. It really bought to my attention how we need to support local military families and assist Army spouses in their search for new roles. Often they will have been relocated to the Wiltshire area and need a friendly Agency to chat to about finding good employment opportunities, as well as help with CV writing. We really appreciate their skill set and many candidates may struggle due to shorter postings. Being able to help them find contracts means they can continue in their career path” Philippa Bullock, Temporary Division Manager said “being an army wife myself, I understand how frustrating it is explaining to an employer why you have moved around the country and not being able to utilise your education or skill set to continue your career in a new area”. “HoneyPot People has given me the opportunity to continue my career and develop a new skill set. HoneyPot People encourages personal development and is actively getting involved in community events to support other military families who are looking for employment”.

Jed's 3 Peaks Challenge

Well done to our own Jed Doe who recently undertook the 3 Peaks Challenge. This involved climbing the three highest peaks in the UK over 3 days, one each day. The peaks were Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales). He walked a total of 27 miles, climbing over 3000 meters and travelling more than 1000 miles in just 3 days, to raise money for Salisbury Hospital's Star's Appeal. The Stars Appeal is Salisbury District Hospital’s charity (no.1052284). They raise money to create the best possible experience for patients and their families by funding extra care and equipment over and above that provided by the NHS. Congrats Jed, great job and we hope the blisters weren’t too bad!
