The UK has been in lockdown on and off for the better part of a year, now. We’ll be honest with you, when the first lockdown happened recruitment shrivelled up and died like a slug in a bag of salt and vinegar crisps. As the country entered its enforced incarceration, companies put their hiring processes into a similar state, and huge numbers of our recruiting brethren and sistren were instantly out of a job.
Fast forward to the lockdown that we’re currently in (December 2020 – ?) and the picture is completely different. At the time of writing, 10 million people have had their first COVID jabs, and there are now more approved vaccines than you can shake a stick at.
What that means in terms of recruitment is, because we can now put a pin in the map as to when things might conceivably get back to normal, demand is starting to climb again. In six-months-time, we’ll be so busy that we might need to install camp beds in the office.
Let’s put this another way:
Just read this article that the BBC published on 4th of February. No virus means consumer confidence rebounds like a giant Acme rubber band. Imagine what the pubs will be like once they can open with no social distancing or masks. That’s the kind of magnitude we’re looking at for the jobs market.
If you have a vacancy that was going to be advertised pre-lockdown, but you pulled it at the last minute, you need to advertise and fill that position NOW – before the amazing people who were made redundant through COVID get snapped up by your competitors. The kind of available talent out there at the moment probably won’t happen again in our lifetime, so you need to take advantage of it before it’s gone forever.
This is where we come in. We’ll actively headhunt this talent pool for you and find the very best people rather than waiting for them to come to us. We have a success record of 96% and we can even guarantee your hire for up to 12-months, so there’s literally zero risk involved for you.

Whatever you do, don’t be Wile Coyote caught in that Acme rubber band.
