The effect of tourism on Thanet employment

If you have lived in Thanet for a long time, you will have noticed that tourism is (once again) changing the face of the area. In 2017, the Sunday Times voted Margate as the best town beach in the UK, saying it had ‘resurfaced as the UK’s hippest resort’ and it seems that each year there are more people descending on the beaches and attractions the area has to offer.

And no two payments are the same – hourly rates, annual salaries, tax exemptions, tax codes, pension payments, contract duration and holiday entitlements are just some of the variables we must contend with.

Why do we insist on keeping our

How to succeed at group interviews

Over the last three weeks, we’ve taken a look at how to approach telephone interviews, video interviews and interview presentations. Today we look at group interviews. It’s important to understand why people use this type of interview and, in our experience, there are two main reasons: Time Saving – employers can asses 3, 4 or more candidates in around the same time it takes to do a single interview.
