Bis in Barcelona
Mental health in recruitment
At the beginning of June Bis Recruit celebrated 15 years of trading. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Bis went to Barcelona!
We jetted off on a typical British summer afternoon in London trading the grey cloudy skies for the sun soaked city of Barcelona. We were lucky enough to be staying in the very plush, beach side W Hotel, where we were treated to spectacular views and out of this world rooms (especially Freddie who managed to bag himself a cheeky room upgrade!) The scene was set for a very fun weekend.
Numicon & Makaton meets Toilet Twinning
Having worked for Bis for 7 years now (my 7th Bis birthday was on 1st May), I think it’s safe to say I’ve been through the ups and downs that come with working in the recruitment industry. There are certainly times when working in recruitment that you need a really thick skin. My skin, I must say, isn’t as thick as I’d like it to be sometimes.
Welcome Freddie to the team!
I embarked on my second Toilet Twinning presentation a couple of weeks ago. This time I went to The Michael Tippett School, a wonderful school near Dulwich for children with disabilities and severe learning difficulties.
They had asked Toilet Twinning to come in and give a presentation to the children, as they had twinned not only one, but six out of their seven toilets! They were also in the process of raising even more for the charity.
Helpful CV tips
The days are getting longer, the clocks have gone forward and on April 1st I embarked upon my new role at Bis Recruit. It is now Friday afternoon and the week has flown by. The whole team here have made me so welcome and I am overwhelmed with the reception.

Charlotte helping flush away poverty!
It’s Monday 5th November. The winter is forcing itself upon us. Just as the days are becoming shorter and the nights grow darker, I find a light at the end of the tunnel.
That light is Bis Recruit.
Bis Recruit in Palma
A staggering 2.3 billion people worldwide don’t have a loo. That’s 1/3 of the world’s population.
I discovered Toilet Twinning after seeing framed pictures of toilets (which clearly weren’t from this country), in a couple of bathrooms I had frequented. Wanting to find out more, I decided to look it up online and discovered it was a charity that raises funds to enable people living in poor communities to have clean water, basic sanitation and very importantly, a toilet.
The tips of temping by Frankie
This weekend we jetted off to Palma, Mallorca, for a weekend of sun, sea and sangria.
As seasoned travellers, directors Sue & Chrys played tour guides and ensured we made the most of the 48-hour period we were away. Staying in the beautiful Gran Melia Victoria, we were only a short walk along the marina to Palma’s historic Old Town where you can find authentic restaurants and boutique shops hidden down the many winding side streets.
Registering with the temps team at Bis Recruit wasn’t what I’d expected. Hardened from what seemed like hours of fruitless online applications and countless unanswered emails, I had fully prepared for the registration process to be equally as painful. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised! Half an hour later, I emerged from the offices on York Street with a mind buzzing full of great CV advice, warmed from a cup of tea and with a new job on the horizon.
