Brexit: Could Uncertainty Risk Jobs & Investment?
As the uncertainty of Brexit lingers on, the UK risks losing jobs and investment (warns Britains five biggest business lobby groups).
In a letter issued to Brexit Secretary David Davis, the groups state that “time is running out”.
The other lobby groups backing the letter are the British Chambers of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses, and the EEF manufacturers’ body.
Theresa May has suggested a transition period of about two years.
EU negotiators have agreed to start preliminary work on a future relationship. However, they still want more concessions on the UK’s so-called “divorce payment” before starting talks on trade and transition.
The five business bodies – which together represent firms employing millions of people – are calling for more urgency. With less than a year and a half left until the UK leaves the EU, this is vital.
Concern about the loss of UK jobs and investment was underlined last week when the head of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, tweeted that he will be “spending a lot more time” in Frankfurt.
All of this comes at the worst time for the UK. Unemployment fell again by 52,000 in the three months to August to 1.4 million. Therefore, the jobless rate remains unchanged at 4.3% from the previous quarter.
Mrs May is due to address the commons on the progress of Brexit negotiations later this week.
For people who are new to the online recruitment industry there can often be confusion around the subject especially when it comes to identifying the main benefits in comparison to more traditional recruitment methods.
Being experts in the field, the benefits are clear to us here at Net-Recruit! This is why we’ve put together the following list which demonstrates how an online recruitment campaign can benefit your business next time you need to recruit new staff.
It saves you time
If like most busy professionals you barely have the time to get your daily tasks completed, finding additional time to recruit new staff can be difficult if not impossible. After the initial setup and consultation an online recruitment campaign lets you put your recruitment efforts on auto-pilot. Each aspect of the campaign is skilfully handled by a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about finding the right candidates for your requirements in the most efficient manner.
It saves you money
With one simple fixed fee, an online recruitment campaign ensures that you won’t be going over budget next time you need to recruit. Some recruitment companies also offer a free re-run of the campaign if a candidate isn’t found in time or they don’t quite fit the bill!
It helps you find the right candidates for the job
Based on a provided criteria, each candidate who applies for your position manually has their C.V. screened by specially trained staff which results in those that do not match the specification being discarded from the pool of suitable candidates. Also, for an additional charge but highly worth it the best recruitment agencies will also conduct a Pre-interview questionnaire and perform psychometric tests which increases the chances of finding the very best candidate for the role.
So there you have it an overview of the primary reasons as to why online recruitment can benefit your business. If you’re still unsure or just curious, be sure to check out our online recruitment bible which takes a further look into the industry as a whole.
