Monday 16th March

Individual Iceland stores around the country have introduced an OAP's hour from 8am and 9am, some other stores have opened at different times to their preference. This was introduced to allow the elderly to shop in quieter and less stressful times. Bulk buying has became a nation wide problem and is stopping many vulnerable people getting the essentials needed to survive. I personally haven't stocked up on any essential items as I dont feel there is a need for it quite yet. Items such as toilet roll, long life milk, baby formula and pasta/rices are in high demand. Luckily where we are situated our local Co-op is well stocked and we also have an essentials shop up the high street. However, travel 15 minutes down the road to Lockerbie Tesco and the shelves are getting rather bare. We need to look after the more vulnerable in our communities and bulk buying only stops this.

Our local bakery is doing deliveries around the town to those who are more vulnerable and for the over 70's who are too scared to leave their house. We have a great community here in Moffat and it looks like the community is putting things in to place now before we are all in lock down like Spain, Italy and China. Hopefully it wont come to this but measures need to be in place.

Monday 9th March

Monday 9th March

As we are approaching closer to Easter the office is gradually getting busier. Relief has picked up and Johanna is getting jobs confirmed daily, permanent has also picked up significantly with jobs being registered daily. We have lots of permanent and seasonal positions available across Scotland including the Highlands and Islands such as the Isle of Harris, Isle of Skye, Fort William etc.

Jessica is currently on annual leave until Wednesday so myself and Johanna have picked up Senior recruitment for the time being. We have a good availability of chefs at the moment and we are getting lots of CV’s in daily. We are still getting chefs from outside of the EU looking for work in Scotland but we keep getting asked what is going to happen come December time. Sadly, I don’t think any of us really know the full scale yet of what is to come. We can only hope that those outside of the EU will still be given the right to work in the UK.

Out and about 6th March 2020

Hopefully this will continue to rise 😊
