What does the future hold for IT recruitment?

What does the future hold for IT recruitment?
IT recruitment has always been at the heart of many businesses growth and development strategies and we expect this trend to continue into 2015 and beyond. As IT continues to take centre stage to deliver company growth, market penetration and profitability, the shift from IT to ‘digital’ technologies have had a game-changing impact on most industries across the UK. The word digital is now an everyday part of our language, but the differences can be clearly seen in the level of adoption of digital recruitment amongst the industry sectors. Social networking sites are of course charging ahead and have illustrated the blueprint for other industry sectors to learn from in terms of flexible target operating models and product adoption.

UK-wide recruitment surge as demand outstrips supply for legal professionals

UK-wide recruitment surge as demand outstrips supply for legal professionals
The legal recruitment market continues to be buoyant in Quarter 3, with the continued rise of permanent and interim recruitment across the UK in both private practice and industry. In practice, the recruitment surge is not solely limited to the larger national firms, as we now see smaller regional and local law firms look to bolster their workforce. Similar to the first half of 2015, Commercial Property continues to see the greatest demand for lawyers at all levels of practice and in turn we have seen an increase in opportunities for lawyers operating in the housing, construction and planning disciplines.
 
 
 

Candidates continue to call the shots in today’s Accounting and Finance jobs market

Candidates continue to call the shots in today’s Accounting and Finance jobs market
Remaining firmly in the hands of the candidate, the accounting and finance recruitment market continues to move from strength to strength. Job flow and demand for upper quartile individuals has just about returned to pre-recession levels and for highly sought after talent we’re seeing ‘desired’ salaries, regardless of market expectation, being honoured. This comes as many organisations admit they’d rather pay over the odds to secure their first choice candidate, than see them slip into the hands of a competitor.
 
 
 

Accounting and Finance sector in best shape since pre-recession

Accounting and Finance sector in best shape since pre-recession
The first quarter of 2015 has shown that many of the big accounting and finance teams are back in growth mode, reinvigorating their annual hiring plans with gusto. In fact, the jobs market in the accounting and finance function in general, hasn’t witnessed such resilience since before the economic downturn. So, what’s caused this rise in job flow? Improved market confidence has certainly been a key factor, with many now keen to address skills gaps and get resource-ready. This is especially crucial for those whose business objectives are predominantly project-heavy.
