Check out Season One and Two's previous guests who were full of recruitment tips and big energy.
MD, One Way
Rohit chatted with Paul Payne, MD of One Way about how covid has changed the market, and how it was an eye-opener for many recruiters mental health. Through the pandemic, we saw a lot of people trying to help each other out and lots of us took time out to reflect on our own physical and mental health. At Paiger, mental health is a top priority for us, and over the past year, we've been raising money for Mind, the mental health charity through our charity tees. We loved Paul's openness in this episode and as he said it's so important to take a step back.

Founder and Managing Director
You do not find recruitment... it finds you... After covid wiped Chris Cranshaw's plans out the window this year, the only things to turn it around are being on my talk show and having a beer with Boris... obviously. I'm sure a quick conversation with Boris about recruitment would be enough to brighten his year too... And the competition for the best background is on... thanks, Chris!
HERE'S JOHNNY! Merry Christmas everyone! An early Christmas present from me and Chris because every day is a learning day...

Not only is he fashionable, but he's also great at recruitment tag lines... name a better tag line for a recruitment agency than 'we get people jobs'... And Conor McGregor if your listening... Leith's offer is still there... Thanks for joining me Leith, we both revealed things we shouldn't of!
My first lunchtime special featuring Kate from Montreal Associates. On Rohit's chat show there are no limits... When you thought my quick-fire round was tough in past episodes, I added in trying to eat whilst answering... a new challenge in itself. Are you looking to take up drinking? We've got the advice for you... Lidl vs. Aldi for your Xmas wine purchases... Lidl is great for fresh but Aldi is great for frozen and wines - change our minds...
