The COVID Effect

The challenges and changes brought by COVID-19

The COVID Effect

The last few months have been challenging to say the least. The Covid19 pandemic has, if nothing else, allowed people to slow down and re-evaluate their priorities. Many have enjoyed time with the family and rediscovered activities they no longer had time for. Some have endured times of frustration, disappointment and uncertainty. Most are now clamouring to get back to work and shift towards ‘normal’, whatever that is going to look like. 

As lockdown lifts and life returns to some form of normal there have been major changes in our industry. Many companies, including some major names, have sadly had to close their doors permanently; many are still on a path of phased re-opening. Some are reporting to now be busier than they ever thought possible! 

One thing for certain is that there are many good candidates who find themselves in the market for a new role. This may be a personal decision to make a conscious change or one that was forced upon them due to losing their job. 
The good news is that we are now seeing companies returning their focus to addressing their recruitment needs and in the past couple of weeks have engaged multiple new clients needing experienced staff as well as re-engaging with companies who were looking for staff before the pandemic took hold.
