Letters - Scary CV advice.
Possibly the recruitment agencies mentioned by Jamie Crampton & Cliff Redman (letters, 8 March, page 15) were nationwide and had a branch in Nottingham many years ago.

Before I had finished the interviewer replied ‘Ah yes Bespoke – I’ve heard of that’. The thought my future lay with these people was frightening.
