Cracking First Day at the 2015 Recruitment Agency Expo

Blimey, yesterday was an absolute corker. Thanks to all the stallholders and everyone we’ve been chatting to throughout the day for making it a good ‘un, we hope you all had as much fun as we did.

We saw all the usual: shoe shining, masseurs and a virtual reality racing set-up, so all-in-all, a pretty standard Recruitment Agency Expo.

We’d like to give a little shout out right now to all our partners that turned up today and the top notch stands they put out. We liked them so much we even put a little gallery together, showcasing their wonderful displays:

The My Job Hub Team are at the 2015 Recruitment Agency Expo

Howdy everyone, the My Job Hub team are here today at the Recruitment Agency Expo in London Olympia, making an appearance, meeting some people and generally just seeing what’s going on in the world of recruitment right now.

If you’re down here as well, let us know and we can have a little catch-up.

World Cancer Day – My Job Hub Supports Teenage Cancer Trust

With today being World Cancer Day, we’ve chosen to announce our charity pledge for the year to Teenage Cancer Trust.TCT_In_aid_of_logo

Here are some facts about teenage cancer:

  • Around seven young people aged between 15 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
  • 24% of teenage cancer patients have to visit their GP at least four times before their symptoms were taken seriously or they were referred to a specialist. That’s one in four.
  • This information is not meant to worry or scare you – cancer in young people is rare. Only 0.6% of all cancers occurring in people are in 15-24 year olds, but you need to know the facts.
  • An average of 2,234 teenagers and young adults per year in the UK were diagnosed with cancer in 2009-2011.
  • An average of 311 teenagers and young adults per year in the UK died from cancer in 2009-2011.
  • More than 80% (81.4% in males, 84.4% in females) of teenagers and young adults in the UK survived their cancer for five years or more in 2001-2005.
  • Lymphomas, carcinomas and germ cell tumours collectively account for more than half of all cancers diagnosed in 15-24 year-olds.
  • The incidence rate of all cancers in 15-24 in the UK has increased by around a fifth since the mid-1990s.
  • Survival for teenage cancer is improving.
  • Around 310 teens die from cancer each year in the UK.
