Recruitment firm launches new group brand and sets sights on transformational growth


Search, the established provider of multi-discipline recruitment solutions, has embarked on a transformational growth strategy with the market launch of its new Search Recruitment Group brand.

Building on its established foundations and following a period of sustained market growth, Search CEO Richard Vickers – who joined the company from Page Group plc last year – is now leading the forward-thinking executive team into the organisation’s next phase of expansion.

The experienced and entrepreneurial board, comprising of Mark Bailey, founder and CEO of Group business Henderson Scott, and longstanding CFO Stuart Dick, are focused on delivering a trajectory of growth in every discipline of the business.  And they believe the Search Recruitment Group structure provides a platform for creating a house of specialist recruitment brands.

Utilising advances in recruitment technology, and by maximising economies of scale by harnessing knowledge from across the organisation, Search Recruitment Group will deliver specialist services aligned to key market areas.

As part of today’s announcement, the group has also revealed the integration of its existing technology divisions, Search Technology and Henderson Scott, its highly successful 2018 acquisition.

Now operating under the reputable Henderson Scott brand, the integration will create a team of 60+ talented consultants, and will offer comprehensive talent solutions, offering an improved proposition for clients and candidates across technology, cloud, cyber & IT Sales.

Two new state-of-the-art offices will also open in Liverpool and Edinburgh, broadening the Henderson Scott footprint, supporting its continued focus on high growth and emerging markets, expanding further into the UK, as well continuing its success in Europe and the US.

CEO Richard Vickers said: “Within Search Recruitment Group there are many highly talented and experienced people working across a large portfolio of industries and sectors, with best in class knowledge of their markets.

“Through Search Recruitment Group we have a platform to leverage this expertise, and deliver market-leading recruitment solutions to candidates and clients in those sectors we specialise in.

“Our aim is to maximise talent from across the group and empower our teams to really make a difference, harnessing knowledge and skillsets, helping us make a real difference as the market emerges post-Covid.”

Mark Bailey, Group board member and Henderson Scott CEO said:

“Henderson Scott leads the way in the industry and it made sense to consolidate our Search technology brand into this market leading outfit, reflecting the vision of the Search Recruitment Group board to drive growth through our technology specialists.

“Henderson Scott has many long-standing and trusted partnerships with clients, as does Search Technology, so our adoption of an integrated delivery model will provide greater choice and access to expertise, all of which will positively impact our customers and allow us to service more areas of their hiring needs.”

Coinciding with the launch of Search Recruitment Group, the business has also launched its new group website https://searchrecruitmentgroup.co.uk

New release sets the path for the future of visitor management


On Thursday 23rd April, one of the world’s fastest-growing visitor management apps, Sign In App, made their biggest step forward to date as they launched version 4 of their iPad-based app.

Backstory
Work on (what would become) version 4 started at the end of 2018 when the team spent a few days of their holiday break reimagining how Sign In App could look as they moved into 2019 and beyond. As the year progressed, the scope grew; incorporating more and more ambitious ideas. By the summer of 2019 it was clear that a whole new app was needed and following six months of development and three months of testing, the Sign In App team were finally ready to release version 4 into the hands of their community.

Continual evolution of the product and platform is part of Sign In App’s DNA. If you’re a Sign In App subscriber or have followed them for a while, that won’t surprise you as you’ll have seen the fruits of the team’s labours each and every month. They look at where workplaces are heading and build useful features, releasing them at no additional cost to benefit the Sign In App community.

While no-one could’ve predicted the challenges we’re all facing today, the team are glad to hear that so many of you are using Sign In App to adapt; whether that’s switching to remote working with confidence, building detailed health questionnaires for contractors and staff or producing daily rundowns of key workers still signing in to the site.

Sign In App understands that visitor management might not be at the top of everyone’s agendas as they release version 4. But just like remote sign ins, each new feature gives subscribers more ways to customise the product, adapting it to suit their needs at the time. With that in mind here’s a quick overview of version 4 and why Sign In App feel it’s their biggest step forward to date.

Supporting new features
The team behind Sign In App are ambitious, talented and imaginative. Their roadmap is packed with ideas that they can’t wait to release and share with their community. Because the product evolves so quickly, it’s already radically different from the version 3 which released at the start of 2018. Back then, they were introducing GDPR features and visitor groups for the first time. In the months since, Sign In App has added events, companion app, Sign In App Tap, personal fields and many more.

By building a new app with version 4, it gives Sign In App the opportunity to take everything they’ve learned from a period of rapid growth and optimise the app, streamlining the code to create a new platform to support future projects. With a clear roadmap ahead, version 4 is ready for many new features to come. At launch, Sign In App is introducing video messages, message documents, video welcome screens, new evacuation reports, support for multiple sites and lots more.

More ways to customise
The Sign In App team has always been passionate about trying to provide the best sign in experience in the market. They do this by having a wide range of customisation options, a stable, secure platform and the simple sign in process that’s become their trademark. They’ve been amazed by the ingenious ways people use Sign In App, from signing out keys to signing in dogs, they’re constantly impressed by how their community uses the customisation options available to them.

As Sign In App continues to grow, customisation will remain at its heart with even more options to customise the sign in experience for your staff, contractors and guests. The new sign in experience in v4 adds an optional ‘light mode’ theme and support for videos throughout the application to give you more ways to stand out, promote your brand and share important site information.

Improved accessibility
The team is proud of the feedback they get around Sign In App’s usability and intuitiveness. That applies across the board from the online portal, to the companion app for smartphones and of course the iPad app for receptions. Many people who sign in to site via the iPad are using the product for the first time, so it’s critically important that the experience there is simple and self-explanatory.

It’s equally important that the app itself is accessible, allowing guests of all ages and levels of technical experience to sign in unaided. It’s one of the main reasons the Sign In App team chose a touchscreen (iPad, for its familiarity at home) and suggest using landscape orientation (for the largest onscreen keyboard). This has helped Sign In App become popular in sectors such as care homes and charities where the user base is wide and varied.

Never content to rest on their laurels, the team want to do more to ensure Sign In App is the most accessible visitor management solution in the market. Version 4 introduces improvements across the board with larger and heavier fonts, clearer buttons and audio feedback such as button sounds and spoken messages. The optional new sign in experience takes this even further with larger custom fields and more accessibility options including button and font sizing.

Sign In App continues to work with their clients who regularly sign in visually impaired guests to ensure the changes they’re bringing are helpful and encourage feedback from their community around any accessibility issues they’d like to address.

Version 4 of the iPad app is a leap forward in accessibility and usability, with more customisation options than ever and an interface that’s still simple to use. The team at Sign In App are looking forward to getting it in your hands and remember, version 4 and all the new features are included at no extra cost as part of your Sign In App subscription.

If you have any questions about Sign In App, send them an email at support@signinapp.com or start a live chat online at signinapp.com and the team will be happy to help.

Urban Lights Sets the American Dream in Motion with Inspired Candles


Lady Liberty has been welcoming the world to America since 1886 with her beacon of faith. Following her concerned gaze to the great city across the river, the New York subway system bonds 8.6 Million people together each and every day (according to the MTA.)

Our journey began in New York, a concrete jungle and gathering place for people from all over the world,” shares Elisabetta Beatrici, Co-Founder of Urban Lights Candles. “We were inspired by Massimo Vignelli’s renowned NYC subway signs,” she added enthusiastically.

Urban Lights, a new candle company, wishes to bring the people of New York and beyond together. “What if we can set our American Dream in motion while connecting and supporting other people, encouraging each person to share their stories by spreading love, joy and hope?” said Co-Founder Taner Oktar. “The gesture of lighting a candle is very powerful. To us, our candles are more than designed objects. Of course, they are beautiful and timeless, but they would also be transporters of stories. With each new owner; Urban Lights candles become symbolic and serve as a reminder of something nostalgic, poetic… and empowering.

Open to the public, the media initiative, “Let There Be Light”, is an interactive social campaign that kicked off with a launch reception at SoHo, New York City’s Perfumarie on December 4th, 2019.

Urban Lights celebrates the unique vibes of five Manhattan neighborhoods: 5th Avenue, Wall Street, Grand Central, Spring Street, and 125th Street, each with a beautiful olfactive profile. As modern, travel-ready objects of desire, each candle has the ability to activate a journey down memory lane with a distinctive aroma.

Designed in New York City and made in the USA, the Urban Lights regulatory team is constantly providing safer and more sustainable options for fragrance development and usage in candles. Because Urban Lights cares about sustainability, the glass vessel is made from recycled and reworked materials.

Urban Lights Candles ($49) are available online and at Perfumarie.

UK Boxer Jimmy ‘Kilrain’ Kelly signs multi-fight deal and sets sights on world title


The 24-2 boxer from Wythenshawe has signed a 3-year, multi-fight deal with New York Promoter Greg Cohen Promotions who believe he will be their next World Champion

Manchester, UK; 22 October 2019 – To the public eye, it’s been a quiet year for 26-year-old boxer Jimmy ‘Kilrain’ Kelly with only one fight behind him – a bout he won convincingly at 60-53 over six-rounds against Miguel Aguilar at Elland Road in Leeds – but after a move up to Middleweight, an all-new management and coaching team and now, signing a multi-fight deal with New York Promoter Greg Cohen Promotions, Jimmy has his sights firmly set on a world title within the next 12 months.

Earlier this year he said his time away from the ring had not been wasted. Jimmy used this time wisely, maintaining a rigorous daily training regime, including two sessions three days a week, which has resulted in him being in the most powerful and explosive form of his career.

Jimmy’s all-new team includes James Mulvihill of Clearwater Boxing as manager, former World Champion, Anthony ‘Arnie’ Farnell as coach, to bring out Jimmy’s aggressive boxing style and former MMA fighter Adam Waterfield, to implement specific strength work training. The team is complemented by Richard Harris Sports mind and mental coach, who is working on Jimmy’s mental performance and Sports Scientist and Nutritionist, Sam McKenzie who is managing Jimmy’s move up to Middleweight and ensuring he stays in peak condition.

Manager James Mulvihill says of the team, “We now have a strong foundation and all the pieces in place to ensure that Jimmy’s second attempt at the World Champion title is a success.”

This long-term deal with New York Promoter Greg Cohen Promotions was facilitated by world-renowned Havoc Advisory, who has produced seven world champions in the last five years. With nine fights included in the deal, there are hopes that Jimmy could be their next world titleholder.

Since turning pro at 19, Jimmy’s fighting style and attitude have made him, not only a fierce competitor but a popular drawcard. The third-generation fighter has consistently added to his accolades and maintained his deep belief that he is destined to be world champion.

In order to achieve his goal, he’ll have to stand up to the likes of Dennis Hogan, who defeated Jimmy in his controversial World Title eliminator in Australia, current WBA World Champion Ryota Murata and current WBC World Champion Jermall Charlo.

“I want to fight the likes of Charlo and Murata,” he says, “I believe I’m at that level and it’s only going to be a matter of time before I’m competing for their belts. I believe boxing is all about timing and I believe that now is my time.”
