How has the pandemic affected your recruitment?

We'd love for you to take part in the Talent Attraction and Management 2020 Survey.

Didn't find your answer?

2020 has hit the accounting industry hard - with next year just around the corner, practices are trying to build themselves back up. An extra pair of hands would help to settle the increased workload from Job Support Scheme claims and not to mention, self assessment season.
But taking on someone new during a global pandemic has the potential to cause even more challenges.
We’ve partnered with the ACCA and the Cranfield School of Management to bring you the Talent Attraction and Management 2020 Survey. We’d love for you to take part and hear about your recruitment struggles.

You can take part in the survey here.

All information is treated confidentially and anonymously.

To kick things off, I’d really like to know what you think is going to be your biggest recruitment challenge over the next 12 months?

Our biggest challenge is to stop recruitment agencies bombarding us with unwanted emails about ‘potential exciting new opportunities to hire’, etc. Email opt-outs work for a short while but then we seem to get back onto the mailing lists somehow.
If we could afford to hire we would, but with several large clients in the event and conference industry, we maybe shedding staff instead as it is very likely all those clients will go under shortly.

Interview via teams/Zoom was the only real change enforced by the pandemic i think.

There was a talent shortage before and still is. I assume people are more reluctant to move as they want some kind of job security. Others may have been made redundant freeing up candidates i guess, so the two appear to even out.

We did offer our last candidate about £10k more than I'd have liked to in a perfect world but that is because there wasn't a great deal of alternatives to choose from.
