InterExec reports continuing growth in senior executives job market
"In several business sectors we are seeing the opportunities, in the UK market especially, truly reflecting both a continued optimism in growth and consequently a buoyant market for top executive recruitment," comments Kit Scott-Brown, managing director of InterExec.
With the UK economy showing consistent steady growth and real signs of long term recovery, the Senior Executive market in the £150k to £1m category is responding with an increased demand for high quality candidates from both the UK and overseas. In a number of key business sectors year on year growth based on the most recent June analysis by InterExec shows the following positive numbers: o Financial Services up 15% o Technology, Media and Telecom up 69%, Oil and Gas up 26% Only the Professional Services sector is showing a slowdown of nearly a third year on year. Salary brackets have also been steadily increasing and again, comparing June 2014 with June 2013, salaries up to £500k are up 10% whilst salaries over £500k have seen an average market increase up to 25%.
"Senior Executive candidates who are currently considering their next career move have rarely over the last 5 years had such a positive market to search in. Unearthing the unadvertised roles is crucial for candidates in identifying outstanding opportunities, but with such a buoyant market, 2014 seems to be an ideal time to step up onto the ladder," said Scott-Brown.
