Recruitment Pressures to Ease For Firms

The Business Census 2017 report has found that UK companies no longer see recruitment as a challenge, and confidence in finding and recruiting staff is on the increase.

The annual survey revealed that the number of firms who once considered recruitment as their biggest challenge has fallen from 24% in 2015 to 9% in 2017.

A key aspect of the PMP recruitment service delivery model is our ability to support clients with their hiring activity.

Our in house candidate attraction specialists manage the entire search and selection process, taking time to understand the role requirements, immersing themselves in the client's culture, ensuring that adverts are written with the worker in mind and are posted across the most effective and relevant job boards.
