Launching – A Job Site for Brighton and Hove

Today, I’m excited to see the launch of a new business: Bright.Jobs.

Starting locally but with National ambition, this start-up is underpinned by another excellent technology platform courtesy of the Surge Tech team.

I want to say thanks to Oliver who has led this project from the ground up under considerable pressure. I build lots of start ups and they are both the hardest and the most rewarding thing to do.

The odds are stacked against you which means having a great team is essential. Oliver has been meticulous in his R&D of Bright.Jobs and has proven to me that he has what it takes to get something very significant off the ground.

The marketing plan for Bright.Jobs is literally brilliant. popemobile

If you live in Brighton & Hove you will not miss our advertising around town, it’s going to be everywhere! Plus it’s why we bought the Pope Mobile!

Any business where you hire a full time Pope actor is going to be a winner.

Do you hate your job?

Don't Stay in a Job You Hate

Don't Stay in a Job You Hate

I am 42 years old. I started my working life at 16 by joining the Army.

In the past 26 years I have only had three jobs; a soldier, a police officer and an entrepreneur. I’m actually not a fan of calling myself an entrepreneur, too many people band it around not knowing what it means.

Owning a company does not make you an entrepreneur. Calling yourself one doesn’t make you one either. It’s a title others attribute to you due to your mindset.

Anyway, I digress.

Do you hate your job?

If the answer is yes then I have news for you! You don’t have to. It is possible to find a job you actually love. They are out there. Lots of them.

The main reason most people are in jobs they hate is because of fear. They are willing to put up with something they know isn’t right for them or they don’t really enjoy because they are afraid of change.

This leads to settling. If you are willing to settle for something as big as where you spend a third of your waking life on this earth then what else will you settle for?

F*** that, life’s too short!

Get out there and find a job you love, with people who inspire you, where you can grow as a person and enjoy financial success through professional growth.

Don’t settle for okay. Okay isn’t fun. Okay won’t make you happy. You deserve better for your life than just okay.

Thank you for reading the longest job advert ever – we are hiring 😃

Crucial Group Achieve Significant Milestone

Crucial Group has achieved a significant milestone in its story of growth.

10 Soldiers and Royal Marines have successfully completed a three week Offensive Cyber Security course at our new state of the art Academy in central Brighton.

All 10 candidates are now being interviewed and 100% of them will secure top tier employment with high profile companies through our recruitment team.

Crucial Group - First candidates pass the academy.

  • These guys have served from 7 years to 22 years and are a mix of ranks.
  • Each one has served their country with distinction and they are highly motivated and ambitious to start their civilian careers in a burgeoning industry – Cyber Security.

It has been an honour to assist them in their transitions.

With 8 more Cyber courses already fully booked and new locations opening shortly, Crucial is a company with an extremely bright future.

I am very proud of the team for their professionalism and dedication in striving for excellence.

What a Team with a Winning Culture Looks Like

If you’ve ever been to one of my offices, then you’ll know that culture is important to me.

If you want to win, you need to surround yourself with others who want to win too. I do that by creating a culture of winning in my businesses.

I make it clear, over and over again, that it pays to be a winner. I let my team know exactly what winning looks like, and ensure they have the tools to do just that.

A lot of people ignore stuff as they think someone else will do it for them. If you see rubbish and don’t pick it up because it’s ‘not your job’, then you’ll never win.

Rubbish is everyone’s job. It’s the same in a business.

Do what needs to be done, not just your job. 

Get on a team with a winning culture.
