Why we still need business development professionals

We live in a business world dominated by technology, technology which has led to marketing and sales taking on many of the 1-to-1 conversations which traditionally have been held by business development professionals.

A career in management; have you got what it takes?

A recent report by the CIPD stated that ‘Manager behaviour not only impacts on employee health and well-being, but also on employee engagement’.

What recruitment experience should professional candidates expect?

The candidate experience is a key focus for recruiters and employers in 2017. Job response rates are dwindling and some companies are struggling to recruit talent with the skills they need (see our recent skills blog). So, as a candidate, you can increasingly have the upper hand when it comes to choosing who to work with.  But recent survey results suggest the recruitment experience is not up to scratch.  The 2016 LinkedIn UK Talent Trends Survey found that two of the key ...

Employers: How do you choose a recruitment partner?

In our last blog entry we covered what candidates should expect from a recruitment firm, but what should you, as a hiring manager, look for when choosing your recruitment partner? In our competitive jobs market, many employers believe that their team is their company's greatest asset, so it makes sense to invest in a good recruiter to help you find the right candidates. Deciding who to work with can be a daunting task. How can you be sure that a recruitment firm is committed to delivering the ex...
