Recruitment Trends in 2018

This article was originally published by Bowen Eldridge and has been shared with the authors permission. You can view the original article here. From how we make purchases, to how we watch TV, and even how we apply for jobs; the world as we know it is constantly evolving, and this is something that is being reflected in the emerging recruitment trends for 2018 and beyond. Due to the internet making information readily available at our fingertips, people now expect different things from the job ads they apply for, as well as how they undertake the general recruitment process. Additionally, with the level of unemployment in the UK currently at an all-time low, there’s now more competition than ever when […]

How to Lead Millennials in Recruitment: Part 2

This is part 2 of a series based on my recent discussions with millennial recruiters. As an ex-recruiter running a business that has a particularly big interest in seeing the recruitment industry succeed, I wanted to understand what was happening to cause the significantly high levels of staff turnover amongst millennials. Through the work I’m doing now I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many millennials in the industry and I curated these blogs based on their feedback. In part 1, I talked about communication and creating an organisation driven by purpose. If you haven’t read part one, you can read it here. Now for part two. Part 2   Millennials know where the world is going, steer the ship […]

How to Lead Millennials in Recruitment: Part 1

You may have seen the recent viral video from Simon Sinek on millennials in the workplace (If you haven’t you can check it out here). It raises some really interesting points on how our upbringing has affected our ability to adapt to modern working life. It got me thinking about recruitment and the challenges our leaders face with an increasingly millennial workforce. There are some absolutely fantastic leaders in the recruitment industry and I have had the pleasure of working with and for many of them. However, since moving out of agency I’ve had the opportunity to connect with many recruiters and discuss their views on the on the various agencies they’ve worked for. The feedback I received was that […]

Recruiters: What they offer that jobs boards can’t!

Talk to any Business Owner, Manager or HR team and they’ll tell you – recruitment is tough! Finding and selecting the perfect candidate who will create true value is not easy and many turn to the recruitment industry for support. And it’s big business. Providers to the industry, such as jobs boards, form an $11bn market and there are a plethora of options to choose from. For many businesses, the most common way to advertise a vacancy is through a jobs board, such as SEEK or Indeed in Australia. Yet in recent years, many have complained that advertising on a jobs board just doesn’t cut the mustard and I think there are a few reasons why. Kissing a few frogs […]

Recruiters fill rates dropped

Agency Recruiters – How to Instantly Boost your Fill Rate!

I’ve been there. Anyone who’s worked in agency recruitment has. You think you’ve done the hard part – you’ve picked up the job from a client, possibly even got a retainer or exclusivity, all you need do now is find that perfect candidate. Simple. Well that’s usually where the problem starts. You’ve scoured LinkedIn, advertised, blitzed the CRM, asked for referrals, but nothing. You just can’t find what you’re looking for. Now there’s a possibility that the client either has unrealistic expectations, but let’s assume you’ve done your job and managed those expectations. You’ve got a brief that you think is fillable. It could be just a dip in the market and access to talent that you thought was there […]

Finding your way in Recruitment

The Hide and Seek of Recruitment

Last October, I resigned from my job as a Manager at a Global Recruitment Firm to create a business. A Recruitment business, but not another agency. A business with an entirely new model. One that I truly believe could reinvent the way Employers engage with Recruiters. Recruiters are often given a bad rap and that negativity seems to have intensified over the last few years. A recent study by Inavero in the US, found that between 2010 and 2015, the NPS score for the Recruitment Industry dropped from +33 to -3. For the first time, there were more detractors than promoters of Recruiters. If the same study was conducted in Australia, I believe we would see a similar trend. However, […]
