Support Staff and Secretarial Recruitment Booming among Companies

Companies that strive for excellence and success will also need to invest in their future, and, according to a recent survey, one of the most worthwhile investments businesses can make is a top-notch permanent staff. As firm Robert Walters puts it, going for permanent staff is a “bellweather of market confidence” and delivers a good message for junior staff.

High Demand for Junior Level Employees

According to a recent Hiring Intentions survey, 77 per cent of employers are planning on hiring secretarial and support staff before the year end. The survey also showed that 54 per cent of these companies are seeking junior level employees, while 43 per cent are looking for mid-level employees.

Though only about six per cent stated that they will continue hiring temps and contract staff, 49 per cent of employers are mostly looking for permanent staff, and are advertising more permanent roles. This is indicative of employers driving plans to increase the recruitment of support staff in an effort to underpin their expansion strategy amidst the thriving U.K. economy.

New Business Opportunities

When asked what these companies use as a main factor in guiding their hiring strategies, 79 per cent of these employers cited anticipated new business opportunities as their top factor. With more employers opting for junior level employees, it only demonstrates that these organisations are committed to long-term career progression. This, according to the survey, will be a key factor in attracting and retaining employees.

Why Go for Recruitment Agencies?

As the preference for permanent staff is expected to be more widespread in the near future, so will be the pressure to find competent candidates for employment. Employers will definitely be combing through a large number of applicants, as they look for people who can be valuable to their company in the near future.

This is why hiring through secretarial recruitment agencies can be beneficial for these companies. These agencies have sufficient knowledge of the market, giving a company’s hiring team some insights on what is happening in the job market. More importantly, recruitment agencies supply their clients with a pool of candidates, not merely applicants, which can be of high value for a company.

Take advantage of the growing preference for more permanent staff and hire top-notch secretarial staff with the help of secretarial recruitment specialists in London, like those from RMS Recruitment. Specialists like them work hand in hand with their clients to acquire talented and dedicated candidates that best suit the job description specified.
