Across most sectors, recruiters are experiencing a tighter supply of not just high calibre candidates, but also those with some experience, to deliver to their clients.
The contributing factors include reduced talent pools due to Brexit, the impact of IR35 and some people’s reluctance in moving roles or perhaps returning to work.
As recruiters we are ‘problem solvers’ and need to continue to be dynamic and proactive in where we focus our time to deliver results for candidates and clients alike.
Some basics include us being clear on what our clients can offer new talent, so we can attract the right people, but also consulting with our clients to ensure a solid match to their needs in the current market.
In working with my recruiter clients across a range of sectors, they’re achieving success as we’ve implemented proactive candidate management and attraction techniques to source top tier (increasingly on an Exclusive basis) and placeable candidates.
This includes targeting referrals and lapsed candidates, providing honest specialist advice and not just prioritising on current skills.
