Alexander Hancock is proud to announce that we will be taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September. It is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.
One in two of us will face cancer, and the money raised at the coffee morning will help them make sure no one has to face it alone and gives people the support need to live their lives as fully as they can.
If you are lucky enough to have an appointment with us this Friday, our team will be putting on our baking hats and aprons and baking up a selection of delicious sweet treats for the office! Fierce rivalry can be expected to ensue..

Thursday 16th August: A Level results day is now upon us and although we hope many of you have obtained the grades needed for your chosen University, there will be some of you who may have just fallen short of what you had expected or perhaps you have decided for whatever reason that Higher Education isn’t the path for you at this time. Please do not be despondent as no matter what your results are, you have many options available to you!
The most important step is to take a deep breath and take stock of the avenue you wish to go down. If you are still wanting to go to Uni, UCAS Clearing gives prospective students the chance to find places on university courses that still have vacancies, including at a number of top institutions. Please take a look at the below link as a guide:
You can also consider retaking exams so please speak to your Head of Sixth Form or class tutors, there is a handy guide to this in the link below:
There is also the option of taking a break from education and having a gap year which can involve travelling or finding a job. If you do decide to venture into the world of work, this is something we can help with at Alexander Hancock Recruitment.
We deal with office based positions across the board, at all levels, including entry level positions. Please see the link below for some of the entry level vacancies we are recruiting for right now:

The excitement is building… anticipation is palpable… success is possible .. and it’s coming home….
Because Gareth Southgate has done what so many England Managers have failed to achieve in the past, he has created a team.. the youngest group of players our country has ever put in to bat, the least experienced and yet they are the most successful, smashing records throughout this tournament.
And why? Well because they implemented, as a team, some rules and values such as:
No phones at the meal tables so they communicate together, gel as one group and a group is always stronger than its separate parts
No Divas, unlike the so called “Golden Players” of the past who were more concerned about their individual egos than the good of what they can achieve as one, this group of youngsters want to play together for the good of their country, because they have real pride in wearing an England Shirt and pride leads to a desire to succeed and in turn success
And they have a Manager who looks the part (who doesn’t love his waistcoats?), is calm yet focused, supportive of and instils confidence in his players; teams are created from the personality who heads up the team and their attributes filter down to the whole team
And because their audience is willing them on to win and that will to succeed can overcome any competition
So… Come on England.. We are behind you.. Make us proud and Bring It Home!

Winter Olympics 2018, South Korea and possibly our best performance ever at these games..
Now let’s not get too excited, we have not exactly swept the medal board away but we are a little country with NO SNOW! Plenty of rain, it’s true, but as of yet the Olympic Committee are not looking to create an Olympics based on being bedraggled and damp and nor do I hear of any new sports coming to the fore that include umbrellas… but if they do… heck GB will be right up there on the podium!
But what it has shown is that our little island can hold its head up high and as always, punches above its weight and always will. Never underestimate the power of the small but perfectly formed; there speaketh a 5ft 2” power house!
2018 has started well, we genuinely have some of the best calibre of candidates that are available in Manchester across all disciplines. And you may wonder why that is. Well it is mainly down to our clients who are some of the most successful, forward thinking and best employers in Manchester. We often hear from new candidates that they came to see us because we seem to advertise the most interesting and superior jobs and they want to work for such companies… Success breeds success.. so if you are looking for a new career, or know of anyone who is, then please contact us with your CV
