student recruitmentThe recruitment team have been out of the office for a lot of June and the first week of July, and I’d like to just update you with what we have been up to in the last few weeks. Before I do, I would like to pass along my thanks on behalf of all of recruitment, to all those who have been involved in recruitment and conversion activities this year. As we’re a small team here in recruitment, we couldn’t accommodate all of these visits and activities without your continued support.
