In our last newsletter Avatar pointed out the complexity of leaving Brexit with regards to employment and employment law, to assist as part of the decision process.

You may be pleased to hear that we are liaising closely with the Recruitment Employment Confederation (REC) regarding feedback after Brexit on the job market, and to date business seems to be as normal! Despite all the ‘doom and gloom’ predicted by the money markets, there has been no ‘knee jerk’ reactions, in fact the money markets have not suffered unduly and my pension provider has informed me that our pension investments have grown, performing well since April 2016!

Avatar will endeavour to keep you updated on the trends every quarter so that we can monitor the effects.


Avatar is reviewing new technology to enhance its offers to its clients which includes online interviewing using the latest technology and internet lines to have meeting rooms where we can see our candidates and interview them, recording them if required and sending the recording to our clients for their review as part of the recruitment process. We are also looking at online testing, which is an online pre-employment screening to measure competency and assessment of skills, offering training to match their requirements, plus testing to ensure the retention of knowledge. This includes everything from software skills such as Microsoft Office, Sage to typing skills and language translation. This is also compatible with our new software by Voyager so the links can be generated by our CRM system.

Technology and the Recruitment Industry go hand in hand these days, moving at such a fast pace that it is difficult to keep up, but Avatar embraces this and wants to offer our clients and candidates the best experience!


Our warmest congratulations go out to Anitha and her family who have just had a new addition in the way of a baby girl! Anitha who is part of the research area of the business is overjoyed that they now have a boy and a girl to be part of their unit!
