The diary of a wannabe Kickstart employer… I’m sure very few people will disagree with the idea of Kickstart but as ever, the devil is in the detail. Or the delivery, that comes from the detail, driven by the policy. I was on an ERSA round table last year with around 300 organisations, many of whom would be involved in Kickstart.

By |May 14th, 2021|Categories: Recro Consulting|Tags: |

Getting over the shock and possibly anger is the first step but then they need to figure out what to do. Some may have a plan and others [...]

By |April 19th, 2020|Categories: Press, Recro Consulting|
