2015 has been an exciting year for UniQuest (well, we were never going to start an end-of-year blog with ‘2015’s been bloody awful, were we?). We’ve acquired several new clients, explored new partnerships to better deliver our services, hired great new staff (plus one or two we’re not so sure about), moved office and put together a lot of desks. Our newer, cooler team also inspired us to book our first ever staff training day, which was an all-round success.
TargetX have partnered with us to provide our clients with a greater range of digital services, keeping our promise to stay on top of developments in the world of tech and digital. Our new services integrate with our existing ones to provide our clients with still more of the data-rich info they’ve grown used to, while giving us access to the technological expertise that has see TargetX grow so quickly in the US market.
ICEF Monitor included their interview with Rachel on their ‘most-read and must-reads’ end-of-year list. They were impressed by UQ’s report into the growing role for digital in international recruitment (which was the subject of Rachel’s presentation at NARIC 2015) and so were their readers!
Looking forward, we’ve got plans to revamp our website, explore more partnerships and keep on growing, starting with an event up in Scotland early on in the New Year. And at some point, we’re going to persuade Nat and Rach to agree to the UniQuest UniCorn as our company mascot…
