“Need a degree to get a pay rise – don’t bother if you’re 61 or older!”

30 May 12

“Need a degree to get a pay rise – don’t bother if you’re 61 or older!” “Want to work beyond the age of 65 – afraid not, it’s in our Partnership Deed!” These may sound like the worst job adverts in the world, but in fact they are the subject matter of two cases whose judgments were handed down by the Supreme Court last week (25 April 2012). These key cases are set to challenge employer’s attitude to age and retirement.

How to stop recruiters throwing out your CV

20 Jan 12

Recruiters are very busy people, and typically have little time to read and select CVs for any given role. For them it’s a filtering process, often starting with a pile of CV’s and throwing out the bad ones before reading in more detail, the ones that are left. Therefore your task is NOT to get thrown out with the bathwater, and ensure that your CV is one of the ones that makes it past the first cull!

The End of the Sick note..?

09 Dec 11

It is estimated that long term sickness absence costs the UK economy almost £9 billion each year due to 140 million days lost as sickness absence. With an already failing economy, it is no wonder then that alongside a number of employment law reforms aimed at tackling the economic crisis, this is another area under scrutiny.

What's the Big iPad-ea?

01 Nov 11

We’re seeing increasing demand for pharma marketing solutions to be based on the iPad, and it’s not hard to see why. The pace at which the industry continues its move away from paper-based detail aids seems to be increasing. But what’s interesting is that remote ‘self-service’ edetailing does not seem to be growing at the same rate. The predicted disintermediation of the traditional field sales model hasn’t happened.

The Long-term Costs of Health Care

17 Aug 11

Almost irrespective of the country you live in, the increasing costs of healthcare are unavoidable. For governments, the stresses are particularly acute, as both aging populations and the increasing cost of treatments add financial pressures year on year. Yet as a new study by the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) confirms, we should not underestimate the extent to which the shape of the state has already changed.

Paying Off Competitors

14 Jan 10

Washington is famous for its lobbyists. Make no mistake, of all the industries currently making themselves heard on Capitol Hill, the healthcare lobby is one of the largest and the loudest. Indeed, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, the pharmaceutical industry had almost 1700 registered lobbyists in Washington as of late 2009. Unsurprisingly, then, the pharmaceutical industry has a considerable degree of pull on The Hill.

Perhaps the most ubiquitous phrase in modern day recruitment, thousands of graduates are now at the mercy of this one requirement as increasing competition in the job market leads to rising standards. Perhaps twenty, or even ten years ago, an undergraduate degree and a forceful sense of charisma might well have been enough to net you your first role in an industry.
