Jonny - 'Welcome back to episode 2 of commonly asked questions!
The last episode we were asking what is the market like from a candidate or a job seekers perspective?
What about though, for the employer? We get asked this all the time. Most of our clients absolutely understand that the market can be tough and there is a bit of a skills shortage, but there are ways that you can circumvent those problems.
If you think about what it is that you're actually offering. Are you offering a job to someone for someone to do or are you trying to attract the right talent into the business and make an opportunity to suit that person?
Those two can be very, very different things and I think if you try and target certain skills and build jobs around them, you can absolutely beat the market. There are various other factors as well and flexibility, work from home, that sort of thing benefits, et cetera.
But generally speaking, think about what it is you're trying to achieve when you're hiring someone and that can really help.'
Gideon - 'Bear in mind that we work on behalf of both candidates looking for work and clients looking to employ. We speak to clients day in, day out.
So if you are an accounting firm and you want to find out what your competitors are doing, may it be salary, possibly flexibility, hybrid working, please be in touch.
Thanks very much!'
