Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment will be moving to a “9/78 Schedule” from June 2021. This means each member of staff will enjoy second Friday off. The new working hours will enable more scheduled time off for our dedicated team so that many a long week end can be had over the summer without taking holidays. The new schedule will not impact operational hours as this arrangement has been developed so that a number of employees will always be present every Friday. This change is another measure taken by the organisation as part of their overall employee wellness program.
Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment have been shortlisted once again this year in the Think Global Awards 2021 Life Science Category. Congratulations to all the finalists and we look forward to the outcome in April.
We have just started a new challenge for COPE Galway with big commitments and big plans for the next 60+ days.

“It’s been a year we’ll never forget. Even before the challenges of COVID-19, Australia was hit hard by bushfires during summer 2019-20 – the most catastrophic bushfire season ever experienced in the country’s history. So much was lost, and the impacts will be felt for years to come.
Up to 19 million hectares were burnt, with 12.6 million hectares primarily forest and bushland. 33 lives were lost and around 3,094 homes destroyed.
Early in January, WWF estimated that at that time, 1.25 billion animals had been killed. As the fires raged well into March, and destroyed even more habitat, we had a scientific duty to update that figure to understand the true impact on our wildlife and natural landscapes.” (Source: https://www.wwf.org.au/what-we-do/bushfires#gs.oq9dsf)
In January of 2020 , Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment committed to addressing the impact of the Australian Bushfires by donating $50AUD to the the WWF’s Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund for every full-time permanent professional placement with our Clients.
Today, Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment donated over $1000 AUD to the WWF.
“Dear Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment,

Together we will ensure that the beauty and brilliant diversity of this wonderful planet is preserved for future generations.
Pale Blue Dot® Recruitment had their Christmas Party via Zoom this week with loads of prizes up for grabs for the staff. The team enjoy an afternoon of trivia and everyone was happy to fill a bag full of goodies. Patrick led the way for much of the quiz but was pipped on the line by Jessica who got the last question right for a 5 pointer. On the day the team wore their finest Christmas Jumpers and donated to Cope Galway raising a total of €108 euro. The team look forward to the new year and supporting Cope Galway with more initiatives into 2021.
