2016 comes to a close
THIS year has been a very interesting time for the employment market. Many contributing factors have added to cautious behaviour from the employers perspective including natural and manmade disasters and of course the world recently being ‘Trumped’, a situation that we all have yet to see the real ramifications of. It has certainly been the first year in many in which the job seekers have had confidence to move without fear of redundancy, at least until late 2016. The end of the year has seen a change in many corporate businesses reducing their numbers in business development and other areas. Front line positions have not escaped either with more companies sending their call centre positions offshore. Across the year, the hottest positions have been in Business Development and Inbound Tourism continues to see a big skills shortage. The bright side is that many businesses already have their plans for staff growth in place already. Watch this space!
