Silver medal

January 20th, 2013

We are very pleased to report that Team GB won a silver medal in the men’s hockey at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival.

After beating Malaysia in the opening game, they lost a close match against Australia 6-4, before going on to defeat USA 6-0 to book their place in the final.

Again they played Australia. Jane Faulkner reports that GB dominated much of an exciting game, which was drawn 4-4 at full time. The match was decided by a golden goal, scored by Australia.

Jane has sent this photo of her son Daniel with his silver medal (and a very useful cuddly kangaroo!)

As you know, we are all very excited about Jane Faulkner’s son Daniel who is in theTeam GB hockey squad at the Australian Youth Olympics, which opened today in Sydney.  Jane is enjoying the Australian sunshine (as well as supporting Team GB) and has sent us this report:

The hockey started today. The first men’s match was Team GB v Malaysia. Played at 9am this morning (Wednesday). Good start for GB beating Malaysia 7 – 3. Temperatures have cooled, a mere 90 degrees today, getting hotter on Friday. Next match tomorrow evening v Australia.

The Team GB website is the best source of news I can find on the Austalian Youth Olympics:  There is a match report here.

Joining a winning team

January 3rd, 2013


We’re delighted to announce that, with effect from 1 January 2013, Graeme Quar & Co has been appointed legal advisers to the South Region of The Employment Agencies Movement (TEAM).

TEAM is a nationwide network set up to help small and medium-sized recruitment firms compete effectively in a market dominated by large corporate agencies. TEAM members retain their autonomy and independence, but benefit from being part of a larger ‘corporate’ structure with national reach and negotiating power. In particular, they have access to specialist services they may find it difficult or impossible to maintain in-house – including legal services.

As legal advisers to TEAM’s South Region, we’ll provide members with specialist employment and recruitment law advice, a legal helpline, and access to a wide range of standard documents, such as Terms of Business and Employment Contracts.

This appointment, which we earned following a formal pitch, is a huge step up for us, and a ringing vote of confidence in our skills, expertise and service. It’s a very exciting moment. You can find out more about TEAM here.
