Well, what a year it’s been! Here at Ten2Two, half the team are feeling very smug as they’re absolutely ‘ready for Christmas’. The other half are wondering how much shopping/wrapping/panicking can be done in the next seven days!

The good news is, 2018 is set to be a great year for recruitment, so if you’re seeking a new flexible role, this could be the year for you.

The latest results from the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) suggests that employers are positive about hiring in the new year – something we can all be happy about.

Looking back at 2017

At Ten2Two, we’re delighted to say that we’ve had a fantastic 2017, with some notable highlights including:

  • Extending our client base by over 20%;
  • Reaching the milestone of ten successful years in business;
  • Growing our team by three – welcome Justine, Giselle and Gemma;
  • Placing over 120 fantastic Ten2Two members into flexible roles.

And we’re excited about placing more of our fantastic members into flexible roles and continuing to bring the benefits of flexible working to our clients next year….
