Throwback Thursday - Meridian's TV Debut

The One Show

This week four years ago the BBC One Show were busy filming at our Newcastle branch as part of their One Show Summer Festival. The piece was about migrant workers in the UK and the crew shot a ‘day in the life of a recruitment agency'. They wanted to see our recruitment specialists at work, getting a sense of what sort of skills we are looking for and how we go about matching the right people for the job and how we assess the merits of different candidates. 

Our Chief Executive at the time Mark Mitchell was interviewed by journalist Andy Kershaw regarding the migrant and British workforce mix in the UK and in the North East; a migrant worker was filmed being registered and interviewed by the branch manager and the process was compared against the registration of a British worker.
