Hello, Share Bunnies. A long time ago, I dumped my shares in Impellam (IPEL) though I think my wife may still be a holder. I recall that I followed some advice on this beautiful website to part company with this across-the-board recruitment agency. They'd had a good run and so I made a handsome profit. But the company seemed to be running out of steam. Yet if I were commended to buy the share today, I might do so on the latest results.

Hello Share Spooners. I’ve long held that recruitment agencies are a decent bet in these turbulent times. The reason is that unemployment seems to be on the back foot in various parts of the globe, including here in Blighty.

Hello Share Shakers. If, like me, you enjoy old-fashioned goodie versus baddie Westerns, then you’ll enjoy the rollicking remake of the Magnificent Seven. Not the same calibre of stars as the old 1957 classic, though. No Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson or Steve McQueen, but very entertaining nonetheless. The film has inspired me to choose my own Magnificent Seven.

Hello Share Squelchers. You may or may not recall that I am a fan of recruitment agencies. This is because there are more jobs in the UK than ever before. Also, if you are looking for employment, going to an agency is probably the best chance you have. As my son found out, they will find you a temporary job . And that comes without your having to be interviewed by the new employer. Then, in many cases, the job becomes permanent and there you are.

Hello Share Movers. There are more jobs in Britain than there ever have been. Quite an amazing fact, don’t you think? When you consider that we all once expected a sci-fi future full of labour-saving devices.

In spite of a bit of polite opposition on this stupendous website, I ventured 45 days ago that Impellam (IPEL) was worth a punt.

Like most of my family, Malcolm Stacey has a range of daft lefty opinions which see us disagree on a number of matters. He is a top bloke and we agree on a lot (busting financial fraud, immigration, etc), but I still have images of him sitting in Wales kneeling in prayer to the Money Tree and that brings us to Impellam (IPEL) which he wrote about on Saturday and where we half agree.

Hello Share Followers. Happily, the number of people in work is rising in the UK. Nearly every time the official figures are announced, it seems to take journos by surprise that there really are more work opportunities flying around.
