The recruitment industry in the UK has changed a lot over the past decade. With new Technologies and shifting business needs, we can expect more changes in the future.
Let’s be honest, technology is transforming every aspect of our lives, and recruitment is no exception.
One of the most significant trends I think we’re likely to see in the future is increased automation in recruitment processes. This includes screening tools that analyse CVs and applications to identify suitable candidates quickly. Video Interviews are another tool that is becoming more popular, with video interviews of candidates often being the first stage of most interview processes.
Recruitment agencies like us, focus on providing excellent levels of customer service as a way of standing out. This means offering different solutions that meet each client's unique needs and delivering an exceptional candidate experience throughout the candidate journey.
While technical skills will always be important, soft skills such as communication and problem-solving are becoming increasingly important for employers. I mean how many times have issues stood still because of poor communication in your business? I know it’s certainly taken longer for us to sort out issues that were never communicated to us. As such, recruiters are focusing on identifying these skills in candidates during the hiring process.
We expect these trends to play an increasing role in the recruitment process in the coming years, with these trends firmly on our radar, it'll be exciting to see how recruitment evolves over the next few years!
