Unemployment is at an 11-year low and so employers are being literally forced to speed up hiring or lose top talent. Media Recruitment makes it possible.
The news is good. In fact, it is very good! The latest report coming out of the ONS is that unemployment is at its lowest level in the past 11 years and this means that more people are on the job in the UK. However, there is a flip side to this and that would mean that employers now have to speed up the hiring process or they stand in danger of losing top talent to the competition. With the help of Media Recruitment online, the entire process can be cut to a fraction of the time traditional recruiters take and employers get the talent they are looking for.
Recent Survey Reflects State of UK Job Market
According to a survey cited in Business Matters magazine for SMEs in the UK, almost half the 100 employers surveyed said they have had to significantly speed up the entire hiring process or lose top talent to competitors. As well, 59% of those polled said the entire process is now taking just short of two weeks and in addition to that, 92% said they were issuing offers within a 7-day period following the initial interview. To date, this rapidity in the hiring process is almost unheard of. The speed at which candidates can be found is entirely due to the capabilities of online recruiters such as Media Recruitment.
Media Recruitment Solves the One Real Issue
The biggest problem many employers are having is in finding ways to attract the top talent they seek. Many are putting out online adverts of their own or are using means to attract talent that are, for lack of a better word, archaic. It is no longer sufficient to contact a brick and mortar recruitment agency because that process is much too lengthy and by the time candidates are collected, an online recruiter (again like Media Recruitment) has snatched them up for employers they work with.
Marketing Is Key
One thing that Media Recruitment has that many recruiters lack is the knack of marketing for talent. It is, after all, the same as attracting customers to a business. It’s all about marketing and if an employer wants to attract the cream of the crop, it is essential to pull out all stops and employ a recruitment marketing strategy. This is why we excel at Media Recruitment and how we will continue to place the very best candidates in touch with the very best employers. It’s what we do, have always done and will continue to do. This new rapid-fire market enables us to shine and it is this light that brought you here today.
