Swindon Launch of Verelogic IT Recruitment Company

Another of my jobs last week was the Launch Party for the New Company Verelogic IT Recruitment. I think I have it right in saying that Verelogic IT Recruitment is a sister company of the well established Verelogic IT company that has been in Swindon for 20 years now. For me not only was it a lovely party well organized by the event coordinator Kirsty Heber-Smith but it shows that all is not doom and gloom in the economy. New things are happening, companies are springing up here in Swindon, jobs are out there for the taking, Swindon economy isnt all bad news and depression. In fact all of the people that I talk to in small businesses are quite positive at the moment.
Just to temper my enthusiasm I do know that there are major companies here that are laying people off right left and centre. I have friends who have been made redundant recently and are being made redundant. But it all seems to be the big major companies who do not seem to be able to manage themselves properly. Smaller companies to me, seem to be far more efficient and effective in what they are doing and therefore quite a few are growing and employing.

Well done to Verelogic IT Recruitment. Keep it up.


Swindon new independent businesses or not

Well today it was announced that there were less independent businesses being created than for the last few years.
I wonder why this is.
Do you think it may be because nobody is prepared to help and I mean really help small businesses other than giving them a high interest bank loan or charging them high business rates???!!!!!! Here in Swindon despite the lack of help, small businesses are starting up. Ok if you look at the images attached there are quite a few boarded up shops that make the place look bad, but two of them show new businesses that have recently started trading, one of which only opened a few days ago.
Lets get rid of more of the dark seedy looking shopfronts, replace them with new and exciting new businesses, the better it looks the more chance of even more investment. The above are all in Old Town Swindon. The main ‘New’ part of Swindon is having a long needed huge amount of investment and being redevelopment. Lets not forget about Old Town eh.
