Dear Madam / Sir,
Welcome to the eye-splitting, election-celebrating June edition of
Contender, officially the world's most popular newsletter about recruitment marketing - for the obvious reason that it's the world's only newsletter about recruitment marketing.
As you may have noticed, our logo and branding has changed. It's temporary, until our wonderful brand and logo company submit the final designs. More on that next month perhaps.
As a stopgap, we came up with the logo above, based solely on the colours from a
Nike Air Max 95
. At the last count, exactly no one likes this branding, including everyone in our office bar the person who 'designed' it - we just haven't had time to redo it!
Each edition of Contender so far has contained three new articles, but this month we've lost the plot and put in five (FIVE) and three old ones. We're not quite sure what happened but rest assured normal service shall resume next month when we're scrabbling around at the last minute for ideas.
Unless you've been living under a recruitment marketing rock, you'll know by now that the title to each
Contender is a slightly obscure film quote. The first person to email in with the correct answer gets a pack of pink wafers and party rings delivered to their house by carrier pigeon*.
Last month's correct answer was of course Mary Poppins, won by Hesketh Emden who is yet to submit his address! Come in from the cold agent Emden! Seriously though, please call, we keep having to re-buy your biscuits as we keep eating them.
An important aspect of
Contender is good office music and our song of the month is below. Great for any time of day and day of the week, we challenge you not to want to have a shindig to it:
Right, that's it, loads of articles below, we hope you're having a great month!
Lots of love,
All the team at MMA
PS. What do you call a Spanish man who's lost his car? Carlos.
* The pigeon thing is a lie, we're not sure why we said that.
