Stress Awareness Month at 4Com

As April is stress awareness month, we’ll be sharing a number pieces on workplace stress and offering suggestions on how to limit and manage your stress. We’ll be hearing from experts across 4Com, who will be sharing their experiences on a range of topics from advice on how to keep calm in interviews through to combining learning with your work.

Here’s a closer look at some of our contributors this month:

James Newton, Talent Acquisition Director

James joined 4Com in late 2015 with a wealth of experience in recruitment, having previously held senior roles both in an agency and client-side.

Having joined 4Com, he quickly grew a team that is responsible for adding talented people across the group.

James will be using his experience to provide advice on keeping calm in interviews and on taking the stress out of recruiting the perfect candidate.
