Businesses told to take advantage of executive talent
Businesses told to take advantage of executive talent while they can
Businesses should make the best of poor trading conditions to fill key positions while rare talent is still available to them, leading recruitment consultancy IntaPeople has said.
The economic downturn has seen a considerable number of highly skilled professionals enter the job market following a series of high-profile job losses and voluntary redundancies across the UK over the past two years.
This has put many businesses in the unusual position of having a range of exceptional high-level candidates to choose from.
Stephen Riley, Director at IntaPeople Interim & Executive Management, commented:
The economic downturn has created a unique opportunity for businesses to attract key personnel the likes of whom would not have been available in a more buoyant market.
Many of the candidates we are seeing have the potential to make a real difference and help businesses progress to the next level. If they can, firms should seize this chance to gain a competitive edge by snapping up such talent before the market picks up.
Having substantially grown its own list of available professional Interim Executives, IntaPeople has recently taken the decision to further expand its Interim & Executive Management division. The company has expressed its desire to support business growth by pairing firms up with some of the countrys leading executives.
