It was interesting to see the Guardian this week echo our recent article “PA Candidates are in Demand from Job Flurry Post Brexit” from 2 weeks ago. No-one thinks the post Brexit economic doldrums will last and many think the job hiring uncertainty immediately following the vote to leave was compounded by the traditional summer lull in activity at this time of year. The message is loud and clear – the falter in the jobs market is temporary and candidates who start doing the ground work now will have access to top jobs at some of the best companies who are hiring as usual. Find out why now is the time and how to prepare for your next London job move:
Whether you’re a social media addict or you don’t know your tweets from your likes, there’s no denying the importance of social media in today’s society. Businesses use social media to engage directly with their consumers and use the platforms to attract new customers.
KPMG’s announcement this week that they are condensing their hiring process to a single day highlights a problem facing many hiring companies: top candidates just will not wait when they are sitting on multiple job offers. Top recruitment agencies in London are reporting not only a shortage of good candidates but also the snapping up of the best ones before some companies have even managed to sort out their compensation and benefits package. The message is clear. Hiring companies must interview and offer within an ever decreasing time frame or risk losing the best candidates for their jobs.

Landing the dream job is a difficult task, especially in today’s competitive job market, but recruitment agencies can help. Meanwhile, employers often go to recruitment agencies to help fill vacant positions as they just don’t have the time to sufficiently look through all of the applications that are sent. But what is the role of a recruitment agency, and how can they help you?
Hiring companies frustrated by candidate hesitancy
Recruitment Companies hiring as usual post Brexit are finding a frustratingly low number of candidates confident enough to make a job move. This means there are fantastic opportunities for good candidates willing to overcome job nerves in the post Brexit climate of uncertainty. The companies that are recruiting in the current market are likely to be more financially robust than those on a “wait and see” or freeze agenda. It may be more shrewd to be looking at a job move now whilst candidate availability is short and job opportunities rich.
Temporary work can help career progession, allow you to learn and develop new skills and also network with influential employers. Making the most of your time as a temp over the summer is incredibly important and can be incredibly easy.
It was interesting to see that what is arguably Britain’s top job was decided this week, not on the basis of experience or qualifications but on the issue of whether motherhood made for a better candidate. Was it lazy journalism which chose to focus on this issue rather than the candidates’ qualifications for the job? Or is it that society genuinely defines women by these parameters as if it is insufficient for a woman to simply be good at her job? It is significant that one candidate felt forced to comment on the issue at all and it is not the first time nor will it be the last that women are defined by gender stereotypes.
With all the Brexit politicians resigning right left and centre, we have been thinking about shock resignations and what you should do if you are in a PA or secretarial job and your boss resigns unexpectedly.
Following the result of the EU referendum, many are asking what will happen to the process of looking for jobs and looking for suitable candidates to fill those jobs. Although it is clear there will be a period of uncertainty, there are certain reasons candidates and clients will see no noticeable change within the recruitment industry.
