In the wake of new restrictions this week, the pandemic continues to disrupt normal life, with the situation likely to remain unchanged for at least 6 months.
Many of our customers had started to gain momentum and build confidence, but with several key milestones coming up – the end of furlough in particular – nervousness about what the future holds is understandable.
Support for job seekers
Across the recruitment industry, applications for jobs have rocketed. Various sources are reporting anywhere between 30% & 100% increases in the volume of applicants for each job advertised, depending on its location and sector.
For our professional networks, this means a big increase in competition at every stage of the recruitment process. Now more than ever, its critical to have an outstanding CV, a perfect LinkedIn profile and a polished interview technique.
Our consultants are continuing to provide advice to job seekers on all aspects of their job search. We’re here to help – just get in touch.

Communication and networking
In recruitment, building genuine, authentic relationships with customers has always been paramount. For Boston Hale, forging long partnerships is a key part of how we work, and has helped us to support customers during these volatile and challenging times.
The lockdown period undoubtedly led to a slow down in hiring, but it also provided us with the time to reconnect and engage with people. We’ve been able to advise customers on the transition to a home-working set up, conduct meetings and interviews online and provide up to the minute talent and market trends.
Because our consultants are immersed in their markets, their expertise has proved invaluable at this time. We remain on hand to talk about how the market is changing and adapting to the ‘new normal’ and what this means for hiring.
Whether you’re a job seeker or a client organisation, we’re very much open for business and ready to help.
