What a great milestone today. Louise Triance has sent out issue no. 400 of the premier UK recruitment newsletter, ukrecruiter .
Starting small, she has built an amazing following and a stable of regular contributors. I did manage to contribute for about a year with a series of technology oriented articles, but then faded away :-)
Louise has grasped the blog world and continues to grow the business, having added new colleagues and services in the past year.

We can only hope that RCEURO will have the legs that ukrecruiter has.
As an indicator of Louise's success and evolution, I am copying in the stats that she has shared in Issue no. 400. It makes for interesting reading, and for the history of online recruitment in the UK since her humble beginnings in 2001.
Well done Louise, I am proud of you.
