Market Update – November 2014

As we lead up to Christmas the market shows no signs of slowing at The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners.

On the contrary, November has already shown a peak in activity. With a string of prestigious clients keeping both sides of the business incredibly busy, we are pleased to announce that The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners are enjoying a successful month.

With local companies now turning on the tap to recruit new talent, both our businesses have found the market to be candidate-driven over the past few months. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation states “Candidate availability continues to fall sharply” (October 2014). These conditions are ideal for the few businesses like ours with their own in-house research functions. The burgeoning confidence in the market has seen The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners placing six permanent candidates and five new interim candidates. More importantly, there is a growing order book which will enable us to finish 2014 well and start 2015 with a high degree of optimism.

Furthermore, with confidence growing in the local business community and with more candidates moving into new roles the interim market is blossoming. Companies are looking for more immediate solutions to deal with new project requirements, staff shortages and longer lead times in identifying and securing good permanent talent.

We are pleased that places at our highly anticipated Business Breakfast on 27th November with Dr Steve Bull, Sports Psychologist and inspirational speaker have been in high demand. If you are unable to attend or have been unsuccessful in securing a place at the breakfast you will be pleased to hear that a write-up of the event will be posted on our websites in due course.

If you are looking to secure your next senior accountancy role or interim assignment please do not hesitate to get in touch for details about the positions and assignments we are currently handling. These can be viewed on both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, TwitterLinkedIn and Google+ for further exclusive information.
