  • Who is still recruiting?

    Hi all,

    I have contacted all of the recruiting Companies asking about their current recruitment process. Below is a table showing their current status. Those Companies at the top are the most active and have kept us up to date. Some companies have not responded to us for their own reasons. Please do not comment in this thread. There is a seperate thread HERE which you can comment and post in. I will make it a sticky and leave it at the first post only plus any comments that the mods make to keep it to one page. I will try to keep it up to date and post any comments from recruiters that they send to me.

    I hope this is helpful and cuts down on the number of questions that people ask about who is still recruiting. I will keep it up to date.

    I have had a couple of emails from people telling me "such and such have finished recruiting". I want to stop second hand stories doing the rounds and so I will only update the table above when I hear directly from the Companies themselves.

    Please do not be offended if I do not use your information in the table above, unless you are a recruiter from a company of course!
