We love hearing your feedback – keep it coming!

Now that our latest recruitment drive is complete, I’d like to share with you the first concrete outcome of Wickenstones’ attendance at the FirstMedCommsJob careers event in London this June. Overall Wickenstones’ attendance yielded most positive results – we spoke to at least 20-30 delegates on the day, of which 5 sent or handed in their CVs and 3 passed a writing test with impressive results. We interviewed the 3 selected candidates and were spoiled for choice. Yesterday, the best of the 3 candidates started a junior writing position at Wickenstones. Thanks again for organising the careers event. It was indeed quite a tough day, be we found it most effective at finding the right candidate for our writing position.

Previously we used temp agencies to fill gaps in particularly busy periods of time, helping to cover tasks such as referencing, fact checking etc. However, we’ve recently had a great deal of success by sending out messages to people who have registered on FirstMedCommsJob. We offer people paid placements ranging from 2-8 weeks which gives them invaluable experience of working for a MedComms agency which they can put on their CV when searching for their first permanent job, whilst we get the benefit of working with bright, enthusiastic people who make an effort to impress. It’s a clear win-win situation and one that we will look to use further as we go forward.
