It has been 15 years since I first set out in recruitment, hard to believe, I know ! As a university graduate I had been looking for work and as I entered the recruitment market I was actually approached by the recruiter that I had hoped would help me secure my dream role and asked to join them as a consultant. It sounded great, a chance to work with a range of businesses and industries and consult clients and candidates alike on career opportunities. Flattery got them everywhere. 15 years on and both the market and the role of recruiter has evolved significantly, the rules of engagement changed, the companies and personnel have evolved and the role of the recruiter in 2015 feels very different indeed.

With the recent news that Zayn Malik of One Direction has left the band citing stress as the main cause, it would seem that even those in world conquering boy bands are not immune to the pressures of work stress!
With increased advancements in technology meaning that we can check work emails and texts at all times, even when at home or away on holiday, it is harder than ever to get down time from work and fully switch off. According to the Health & Safety Executive, in 2013/14 work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 39%* of all work related illnesses. It has never been more important to learn new and better ways of coping with the pressure placed upon us in our working life.
