Any Jobs Out There?

 
#1 Any Jobs Out There?

Panr

The company I work for in SE England suffers from a fair amount of turnover at the moment.

Several colleagues have registered with rec agencies but are pretty much having the same response - very few cos are recruiting at the moment.

Is this a shared experience?

Thanks

Chris sale, Prism Executive Recruitment to Panr (#1)

Bit of a Big question this one: I assume as you're on this job board that you and your colleagues are management consultants looking for jobs in management consultancy. If so, while the market is not as booming as some would have you believe there's certainly still a fair amount of demand. There are over 300 jobs on this site alone! Sometimes employers only use agents to fill the jobs they can't fill themselves because they seek very specific skills: i.e. it may be that you would all be better off with direct applications. If you haven’t already tried us I would be happy to have a look at your CV csale@prismrec.co.uk. If you HAVE already contacted us and we can’t help: apologies!

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to Panr (#1)

I think it would be fair to say that the rampant recruitment that was taking place just a few weeks back has slowed somewhat. We've encountered a couple of firms who've enjoyed greater hiring success than anticipated in the first 9 months of the year and so are waiting until the new year to kick things off again while those new hires are bedded in and utilisation levels re-established.

Clearly strategy consulting and FS practices have had a setback - with the private equity slowdown and the credit crunch respectively having dampened client demand in these respective areas (and therefore recruitment)

So overall I'd say firms are recruiting a little more cautiously than they were earlier in the year - but then you'd hardly expect anything different given the economic forces that have been at work in recent weeks. Recruitment's certainly not ground to a halt though, far from it!

Looking ahead a little, all the consulting employers we're working with are expecting a return to "full steam ahead" hiring come the new year, provided there's not been any major economic shock between now and then to dent the confidence of the Partners further.

I gave as vague an answer as the question that was asked so stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

hmm, there's a lot of hiring going on. but there's also a lot of churn so there are usually a lot of people chasing the good jobs.

I work for primark. we're still hiring.
