Back to School

My eldest son went back to school last week and I was most perturbed by the fact that he didn’t want a new pencil case. Buying a new pencil case is a right-of-passage for the commencement of a new school year and all the possibilities it encompasses. The chance to have something new and shiny (and clean; without all the broken pens nibs, empty cartridges and pencil shavings etc) was a way to start afresh at the beginning of term.


“But I like my pencil case Mum, I don’t think I could find a better one”


A life lesson from my twelve year old…


Why in business do we spend so much time trying to reinvent ourselves into something new and shiny –  why can’t we just do as we have always done, streamline a little maybe and enjoy the current status quo and build on it for a stable future. Let’s not spend time searching for something new and shiny – let’s do what we have done (for the past fifteen years) and be the best we can be, enjoy what we do and not get side-tracked by the need to reinvent ourselves.


My son’s words resonated with me. Maybe I am a little biased but Attic is a great place to be. The people I work with are at the top of their game, our clients are loyal to us and am proud that we all love what we do – I don’t think you could find a better secretarial recruitment consultancy in London.


I do still love a brand new notepad though – small pleasures in life…

Attic are great people to work with, they were very sensitive to our needs and able to find exactly the right person for our team now, and for our future ambitions. I recommend them to any ‘creative business’ and for anyone who needs intelligent and talented staff.
