“I look at what recruitment is. Nowadays, for me, it’s so much more professional and consultative than it was 20 years ago, and I largely place that down to the kind of technology we have today.”

— James Vizor, Director, RULE Recruitment. 

The recruitment sector in the UK finds itself at significant crossroads, influenced by rapid advancements in technology, changing employment practices, and the continuing effects of Brexit.

Catch James Vizor and Chantelle Jones, experts with extensive experience in the field, engage in an interesting panel discussion with Recruit CRM.

We covered everything, from a real and in-depth analysis of the hiring challenges to the opportunities UK businesses are likely to encounter in 2024. 

Here are some key takeaways: 

  • Talent expectations have shifted, with a greater emphasis on remote and hybrid work options and competitive salaries. Businesses should benchmark salaries and prioritize employee well-being to attract and retain diverse talent.
  • Diversity and inclusion should be a priority in recruitment strategies to appeal to a wider market and benefit from diverse perspectives. 
  • “The return to office” debate is a big part of candidates’ changing talent expectations. Recruiters must deal with it in a way that is good for their people, their development, and your brand.
