Presenters: Tim Kellett – Reward Expert with Paydata and our very own Nel Woolcott – Recruitment Specialist

  • First 60 minutes to be focused on the webinar/Q&A
  • Latter 30 minutes to be an optional discussion session

2023 proved to be another challenging year for both employers and employees alike – the ongoing impact of the cost-of-living crisis, alongside inflationary pressures, saw the highest pay awards implemented in more than 10 years. So, what does 2024 have in store? Whilst many employers report persistent pressure from employees to maintain a similar level of award this year, there are concerns around the affordability of doing so and the impact on recruitment and retention of not.

In this session Anne Corder’s Recruitment Specialist Nel Woolcott and Paydata’s Pay and Reward Expert Tim Kellett, will share their insights into what the year ahead has in store for employers, alongside strategies for overcoming key challenges.

Prior to the session, please complete this short pulse survey which will enable us to gather feedback from local employers, the results of which will be shared as part of the session:

  • Exploring 2023 pay trends, alongside pay review predictions for 2024 – at both a local and national level

Favourite food: “Curry (Hot)”
Favourite film: “Heat”

Outside of work

“Gym 5 days a week. Home life consists mostly of entertaining a 3 year old! (for clarification – my son)”

Alex on ACR

“Very refreshing to work for a recruitment agency that genuinely care for their candidates and clients”

Sarah-Jane Bond

Recruitment Specialist

I have spent the majority of my career working in Operational and Project Management roles. I first worked with ACR about 25 years ago as a candidate. ACR secured me a role at RNIB, where I stayed for 15 years, finishing as Head of Operations. Recruitment has always been a big part of the roles I have undertaken and is something that I really enjoy. When you match a fantastic candidate with the right client there is no better feeling!
Favourite food: “Has to be any dish from the Mediterranean”
Favourite film: “There are many, love a chick flick, especially ‘The Holiday at Christmas”

Outside of work

“I love socialising with friends, can always squeeze a bit of retail therapy in around volunteering at Deeping Rangers FC, running their hospitality on match days.”

Sarah-Jane on ACR

“I couldn’t have been more delighted when Nel asked me to join the company and have felt at home since day one. They really do care about providing the best service for their clients and candidates, building genuine relationships with both. The team culture is second to none, everyone supporting and looking out for each other. It is a pleasure to come to work every day.”

Emily Roach

Recruitment Specialist

Emily was a Primary School Teacher for 10 years, before moving into the EdTech space, as a Relationship Specialist for MATs. She joined ACR in July 2023 and particularly thrives when recruiting for Account Management, Customer Service and Sales roles.
Favourite food:
“Spag bol or pizza”
Favourite film:
“The Notebook – or any romantic chick flick really!”
Outside of work
“I have a 1-year-old, so love fun family weekends with my fiancé and son more than anything. Time socialising with friends and family is where I’m happiest.”
Emily on ACR
“The unique culture, values, and style at ACR is polar opposite to other recruitment agencies and what I believed recruitment was. Having previously been a Relationship Specialist, I feel I’m doing the same thing! No hard sell, we truly care about our candidates and clients, and the team culture is 2nd to none!”
