Advice for young people – Richard Branson

‘This may not be legally orientated, however, I thought that the meaning behind this applied to any student regardless of their dreams.’  

“Find one person younger than you were when you started, and offer them non-monetary support to help them find success.” I love this #ChallengeRichard that came in via Twitter. It epitomises the spirit of business and my belief that you’re never too young to be an entrepreneur.

I recently received the wonderful letter below from nine-year-old Annie Spicer-Jones of Kent. Accompanying her letter, Annie sent me some designs of an aircraft that she invented. I thought I’d address the #ChallengeRichard by replying to Annie with some tips to help her succeed in achieving her dreams.

Dear Annie

Thank you for your letter, your creativity is inspiring. I enjoy talking to young people about their dreams. Too often children are told that they cannot do this, and they shouldn’t do that – but that just restricts their imagination. Don’t ever let anyone prevent you from dreaming. Imagination is one of our greatest gifts. Without it we would never make the changes that make the world a better place.

I love your designs for your airplane, but more importantly, I love that you [...]

Recruitment at Christmas

Note to all job seekers!

There is a misconception that employers stop recruiting over Christmas period and leave it till the New Year- this is completely untrue. Many of our clients keep recruiting right through the holiday season.

You may well be winding down for the Christmas break, but this makes it a great opportunity for recruitment. You will perhaps have a little more available time in which to focus on the recruitment process, and less day-to-day pressure means it’s an ideal time to ease yourself into the business and be trained in readiness to hit the ground running in January.
 
Job seekers also maybe put off if they have no more annual leave left- but no need to worry, as office business tends to slow down during the festive period! Potential employers are more willing to interview out of hours if candidates are looking to start now or in the New Year.

So! If you are currently thinking about looking for that new opportunity, email a copy of your CV and one of our consultants would be more than happy to assist you find that right role, and help you start your New Year with fresh new start.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation

On Sunday 23rd November we helped celebrate the crowning of Strictly Ballroom 2014 – Sharon Hennessey and her dance partner Linus at the new Titanic Hotel.

All contestants had only 10 hours of dance training, which is fantastic as all participants had never danced before.

Not only where we all digging deep in our pockets donating for this worthy cause, we where also watching ‘our’ former 2013 Strictly Ballroom champion –Gabriella, participating as a judge.

The whole production was a fantastic success and all of the ACS girls had a fantastic night.

The total amount raised was a staggering £17,691.60!! And still this amount is growing everyday. If you would still like to donate, please log onto http://www.roycastle.org/fundraising-and-events/Make-a-Donation/Make+A+Donation

About the Charity

Unfortunately Liverpool has the highest mortality rate for lung cancer in the UK. It is still widely perceived that Lung Cancer is a self inflicted disease, which is not always the case. Charities and the NHS are seeing a rise in children as young as 10 being diagnosed with lung cancer, from passive smoking.

Roy Castle was also a victim of passive smoking from his time as a musician and an all round Presenter. Before the 14th February 2006 smoking was permitted in all public areas in [...]

Kirwans Black & White Ball

The 14th November was officially the start of the ACS’s run up to Christmas events. We joined Kirwans Solicitors at Leasowe Castle to help raise funds for their first Ball/event to help raise funds for Claire House Children’s hospice, a charity which they have supported for many years.

ACS Recruitment has worked with Kirwans for a number of years, and can proudly say that half of their staff we have placed at such a brilliant company. It was also great opportunities not only help raise money but to meet/see some of our old candidates, we placed many years ago.

So far total amount raised was a brilliant £3,400! which is a fantastic amount considering this was their first event/ball!

After a number of brave sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Claire unfortunately was taken in July 1989, a couple of weeks after her 10th Birthday.

During Claire’s illness, it was very difficult trying to maintain a stable family [...]
