Although we are seeing a slight turn in the candidate market for new roles, positions are still tricky to fill. The labour force has changed and the quantity and quality of candidates in the market along with it. Those clients looking beyond their specific requirements are the ones able to source and secure staff. At the best of times, candidates will never tick all the boxes in your selection criteria, but those with extra skills, a mature outlook, sound customer service experience and positive attitude are the ones to hold onto to. Yes, sometimes quality candidates come at a higher salary, but in the long run, these types of candidates prove their worth ten fold.
