The job market is slowly improving and recruitment is going to change with it. Since 2008 we have seen a drastic rise in cheaper, face-less recruitment methods to meet ever-tighter budgets. Moving towards 2015 there is much more confidence both in employers recruiting and employees considering their next move. This is going to make things very competitive for employers next year – job seekers could find themselves with several job offers to choose between.
As this competition increases, the quality of your recruitment strategy becomes more and more important and we are already seeing companies returning to traditional agencies.
I founded 1-1 Recruitment on the belief that quality relationships are what find the perfect people for your company. Recruitment at its best is visual and intuitive – our consultants need to meet you, see the building, and get a feel for your culture and the type of people who work there. It’s not just about receiving a job description and sending over CVs within half an hour - we need to picture the person working in the company. We do this by building relationships with everybody we work with – our clients and our candidates - through face to face meetings and regular contact to ensure the very best service. This ultimately reduces the cost too as we offer a reduced rate for ‘sole agency’.
In a competitive job market, finding and convincing the best candidates is difficult but it’s possible with the right people working with you. Recruitment is a people-focused industry – it’s about building relationships based on long-term partnerships.
1-1 Recruitment is 15 years old in January and we’re here because of these partnerships. If you’re interested in working with us in 2015 please call me on 01256 336100.
