What's the job market like at the moment? - the most asked recruitment question OF ALL TIME!

Posted almost 2 years ago by James Taylor


21 years I have been working in recruitment… twenty one… I can’t even believe it myself.  Anyway, enough of that.

The purpose of this mini-blog is to address the two most asked questions during the course of those 7000 days that I have been speaking to candidates and hiring managers alike.

The Candidate – “what’s the job market like at the moment”… otherwise translated to “are there any sexy jobs for me, and am I being paid enough in my current job?”.

The Client – “what’s the job market like at the moment”… otherwise translated to “am I paying my staff enough to keep them, and if I lose one, how much do I need to pay to replace them (and how hard will it be to find someone)?

We can answer both of these questions for you… almost immediately.  (all you need to do is click on the relevant bullet point above & take 2 mins to submit your query)



I have also worked in recruitment for 21 different December’s… it’s a myth that December and the run up to Christmas is a quiet month.  However, most candidate’s tend to be in Christmas mode, or have already used up their holiday entitlement and therefore can't make an interview...

Now is the best month of the year for any candidate to land their dream job, because competition is at its lowest… dust off that CV quickly and contact your Macildowie Consultant and you could start 2019 with one less new year resolution to worry about.

Seasons Greetings everyone
