As recruiters, we always try to think long-term. We work hard to nurture a candidate pipeline and hope that those who make it through the hiring process will stay the course. But while a solid pool of candidates to draw from is essential, sourcing those candidates can be time-consuming. What we need is a way to make candidates come to us, and that’s where inbound recruitment comes into play.
In times gone by recruiters filled roles as and when they became available. When an employee handed in their notice, the search for suitable candidates began. But these days, with employers and recruiters understanding the value of a candidate pipeline bursting with talent, the game has changed somewhat, and we now take a more proactive approach with the idea that being prepared is everything.
Remember that time not so long ago when we told you why you should be thinking about recruitment events in 2019?

And with the first coming at the end of this month, we’re just in the nick of time. So grab your calendars and a pen, it’s time to start scheduling some trips.
2018 has been a great year for recruitment. From workplace diversity to the gender pay gap, we’ve seen some great strides taken from a social perspective.

After taking our annual look into the office crystal ball (yes, we actually have one) here are some of our predictions for recruitment in 2019.
Yes, it’s that time of year again – time for panic shopping, last-minute deals, and sitting down with the family to overeat for a couple of days. But as 2018 draws to a close, we’ve got more than festive thoughts and dreams of Santa on our minds. That’s right, as you may have guessed from the title, we’re sipping hot cocoa here in the office and reminiscing over the things we learned in the year that was 2018 and here’s what we came up with.
