This week in human resources & recruitment, Paul Brand asks what makes a good recruitment advert,
and then answers the question with a range of points that contribute to you composing the
recruitment ad that is far more likely to attract just the right candidate you need for the position.
Brand also points out what you should avoid doing.
On the tax front, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has warned that taxpayers are becoming increasingly wary of misuse
of their tax monies. Many people would agree with him, but perhaps suggest that he's being too tactful. It would probably be more accurate to suggest that taxpayers are also becoming weary, and sick and tired of seeing their tax monies wasted, misspent through wasteful expenditure, and lost through corruption and incompetence.
To rub salt into the wound, however, we have a new tax bill coming soon
- and in a recent workshop to brief the public on it, the reaction to it has been decidedly mixed.
Good news, however, is that the net is tightening on poor quality financial advice
. A new financial consumer advocate is on the prowl.
Finally, if you're feeling gutted because you should have been on the guest list for the Queen's recent Diamond Jubilee, but somehow weren't, our motoring editor Henrie Geyser (also not invited, by the way), reckons you could assuage your wounded feelings with the purchase of a new Mercedes-Benz M-Class. Henrie reckons it's fit for royalty
