Quick question – Is anybody else finding it more difficult to recruit to FTC roles currently? We seem to be struggling to fill them and I wanted a sense check as to whether it was market/pandemic related or something we are doing wrong?
We’re a regulator and based in London and Birmingham with C350 employees.
Nothing concrete to share atm as we don’t have many FTC. Are your roles WFH and fully flexible? If not, could they be?
We don’t have lots of FTCs either mostly perm roles but at present all of them are WFH and flexible so I’m scratching my head a little.
I wondered if it was the security aspect perhaps due to economic uncertainty and people preferring perm roles but just wanted to gauge if other organisations were having similar issues.
Sorry not much to add, except that for our last HR role in the UK we were inundated with applicants – including people significantly over qualified for the role.
Our role was part time (4 days), based in the UK from home.
I’ve definitely seen a shift in the market over the last 6 months – I’ve recruited c.20 roles during this time, permanent and fully flexible and have struggled massively to get candidates even with help of agencies. Talking to agencies they’re all struggling too – either candidates are snapped up really quickly or people are not moving, presumably because of the uncertainty around the economy and pandemic.
Thanks, I’m glad it’s not just us. We haven’t had many issues with perm roles but FTCs have been more difficult and agencies have also struggled to help us.
