Hello, and welcome to Eagle Eye, the Mercury Hampton monthly newsletter. This is your regular insight into what’s new with us and what’s happening in the world of recruitment. We might even throw in the odd link to a funny cat video or meme if we have the time.
Two New Eagles Join the Nest
We’re ecstatic to welcome two new faces to our ever-expanding team. Firstly, we have Steven Clarke, who will be heading up our Marketing and Business Development. Steven comes to us with a wealth of copywriting and rebranding experience. He’s even written a novel, which we will get around to reading at some point (Just joking, Steven).
Also joining us this month is Grace Smith who has joined us as a Specialist Recruitment Consultant. Grace has an extensive background in Social Media Marketing and Health & Safety Comms.
Welcome to both of you!
Thankfully for us, we had Mercury Hampton IQ to help recruit Steven and Grace, so we categorically knew we had the right people to join us. MH IQ is our revolutionary, award-winning candidate delivery platform that has helped us to obtain a staggering 96% post-hire retention rate on a global scale.

More Mercury Hampton Than Ever Before!
Mercury Hampton is literally breaking down walls in their pursuit of excellence, as this month sees our long-awaited expansion into our new offices. We’ll be knocking a wall down in our existing offices to the room next door, more than doubling our capacity. This will give us some much-needed space as our staff numbers continue to expand at a stratospheric rate. We’ve expanded so quickly that this will be our fifth office expansion in under 2 years! (does this mean we can get the pool table we’ve been asking for now, Boss? 😉)
Photos and a time-lapse video of the before, during and after stages will follow as they happen.
On the subject of expansion, the following article, “6 Tips for Expanding Your Business — Regardless of the Economy,” was written almost six years ago, but the message is as relevant and strong as ever.

Mercury Hampton was recently promoted by St Helens Chamber as a shining example of how their Business Growth Grants can be incredibly effective in helping SMEs to develop and grow. Read the full article here.
Brexit Means Brexit: What Does It Mean for Recruitment?
Brexit finally happened on the 31st of January. Regardless of what side of the debate you sat on, it is now an irrefutable fact of life. Manufacturing, industry, the financial markets, the high street, and consumer confidence have all taken a hit over the last 3 years, so now that the UK has finally left the EU, what does this mean for the UK recruitment sector? Will things calm down or will they be worse than ever? Click here to read an article by Personnel Today on what Brexit really means for our industry.
That’s it for now. We’ll be back at the same time next month for more brain dumps, recruitment tidbits, and incoherent ramblings.
See y’all soon,
The Mercury Hampton Team
