It has been encouraging to have a pick up in recruitment activity with more new roles than expected coming to market this week. A brief update on what has been happening is below.
Accounting and Finance update
Three of the roles we started recruiting this week are newly-created positions and it is great to see that these companies recruiting are confident in their growth projections.
We’ve also had several more contractors have their assignments extended by organisations who want to retain cover but are not ready to recruit permanently given the uncertain outlook.
In another good news story, we’ve had two employers approach us about roles for candidates we spoke with them about prior to the Alert Level 4 lockdown. Now that we are at Alert Level 2, they are thinking about their requirements and these candidates made a good impression so they are still at the top of their mind. Great talent is not easily forgotten!
We have said this before, but a reminder that there are a lot of exceptional professionals seeking opportunities right now who are happy to work on a contract basis. So employers requiring specific skills for projects or interim cover should get in touch.
Supply Chain, Operations and Procurement update
We are continuing to see recruitment picking up in these specialisations as more and more businesses are back on site. Demand for Procurement professionals in particular is on the increase as employers focus on driving supplier performance and delivery to optimise value while also looking to reduce direct costs.
Many of our clients are waiting for further decisions, such as the loosening of border restrictions, before committing to key decisions.
