Aspen Partners launches interim and contract services

Aspen Partners International the global specialists in the placement of in-house recruitment talent has announced the launch of a new interim and contract service. Reacting to the changing nature of the market, Director Andrew Mountney commented, It is clear that in the current climate resourcing remains a dynamic area of HR but that recruitment demands are increasingly project based. Recruitment functions will remain lean through 2009 with few opportunities to hire permanent staff.

Aspen Partners has historically provided permanent recruiting professionals to clients but has seen a rise in demand for contractors to deliver specific projects and sees this as just the start of a new trend, Andrew added, To meet demand where it occurs Recruitment will have to be flexible and innovative, hiring to deliver campaigns to tight deadlines with minimal impact on the bottom line. At the senior end of the function there are a number of interims being hired to review and improve process before quickly moving on leaving behind an efficient and lower cost direct sourcing model.

Further evidence of the slow down in permanent recruitment hiring will be released later in the month when the Aspen Index is launched. An index of jobs in recruitment based on data gathered since early 2008 shows that general demand for recruiters has dropped this month by 77% from a peak which came in July 2008. The full index will be launched along-side the new Aspen Partners website in late March.
