We’re already hearing Christmas tunes being played and wondering if it really is all beginning earlier and earlier or whether it’s just us. Some things you can depend upon, right? But when it comes to your recruitment, how can you find the professional employees your business really needs?

Well, when it comes to the business outlook in 2019, one thing is clear. Next year is set to be the year of change. Whether you view that as a glass half full person, and embrace uncertainty as a period of possibility instead, there is good news ahead.

The REC has said that recruitment isn’t on the wane. They’ve also said that great professional talent is in demand. So, if you’re keen to get sorted in time to leap into next year with the right talent for your business, now’s the time to recruit.

Flexibility helps find professional employees

One way to find the professional employees you need, is to recruit flexibly. It’s our experience that when job advertisements offer flexibility, the number of CVs soon rockets, compared with those job adverts that do not offer this. With half of the UK’s work force being working parents, it makes sense that in today’s agile work place employees are seeking this.

Our flexible recruitment agency is teeming with professionals all seeking the next step in their careers, but who need flexibility to do this. It could be a four-day working week, or it could be offering flexible working from home one day a week. It’s nothing to shy away from either – it’s actually a cost-effective way of attracting great talent at a time when this is in short supply.

It’s a win-win situation: you find professional employees and your team gets the extra support they require to get the job done to the highest standard possible. And just imagine how important that is going to be as we go into 2019.

Get recruitment ready for 2019

If you need additional staff to help bolster your workforce as you approach the new year, please get in touch with our flexible recruitment agency. We can handle all the recruiting, from finding the right candidates through to planning interviews, helping you make a job offer and negotiating terms of contract.

Contact your local Ten2Two office today and we’ll be happy to help.
