Hi folks, 

We are delighted to report that we are back in the office full time, which is great because we are also enormously busy. As you'll see below, vacancies have been really hotting up so – at the risk of sounding like a broken record – please do make sure all your details are up to date so we can match you to a role.

Princess Anne looks set to take on yet more roles including military patronages following the death of Prince Philip and the self-enforced retirement of Prince Harry from Royal duties. We can't help but wonder how on earth she will have time. She's been put forward due to the 'enormous respect' that the armed forces have for her – do you agree? 

Next month will see the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings and with Coronavirus travel restrictions still in place for the time being, we are pleased to see that there will be a UK-based commemorative event at the Royal Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Virtual events were necessary last year but it is wonderful to be able to gather and remember in person.  

Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

Joke: Magic Lamp

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out.

The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish" "Me first! Me first!" says the administration clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."

Poof! She's gone.

"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life."

Poof! He's gone.

"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.

The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Moral of the story:

Always let your boss have the first say.
