August 2020 : Recruitment Update

By working with Oxford based companies and performing monthly surveys, we’re able to thoroughly understand the trends and changes of the Oxfordshire recruitment market.

We hope you find this information useful, please find our Recruitment Market Update for July below.

Our main findings suggest that:
– Companies looking to recruit permanent resource increases to nearly 70%. This is very unusual for this time of year, as in July we see the market slow-down as both candidates and hiring managers take annual leave. However, due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions and the lockdown limitations earlier in the year, we suspect that the usual seasonal trends will be effected this year.
– There is a continued high level of support for the virtual interview process even as lockdown limitations ease meaning that face-to-face interviews are possible again in some cases.
