The staff at Umbrella.co.uk have collected and delivered much needed items to our local food bank, Food Friend, based at St Bartholomews in Wilmslow.

Food Friend is run and organised by St Bartholomew's Church and provides short term assistance and support to individuals and families in Wilmslow. Illness, disability, family breakdown or the loss of a job could happen to any of us.

 

Work well as part of a team as well as on your own initiative? You and everyone else I'm afraid.

We're recruiting across the board here at Umbrella Accountants and consequently I'm getting to read a lot of CV's. Some of them are clearly refined by efficient recruiters and then there are others telling me about how they spent 2 weeks on a paper round in 1983 as part of their 20 year career in accounting.

One thing that does appear on both direct CV's and those from a recruiter are those boilerplate phrases that are repeated so often they mean absolutely nothing. You know, just like the most standard one that appears in almost every CV and is in the title of this post. Others you may see far too often are "I am conscientious, hardworking and trustworthy", the amazing revelation that someone "Works well under pressure" or posesses that most rarest of skills - "can communicate at all levels".
