So you are a Manchester (or nearby) recruiter who needs to generate more of your 3Cs (candidates, clients, colleagues) – and you’re too busy to know where to start? Read this recruitment blog and watch this short video: this is really going to help you focus your efforts on growing your pipelines and teams.
Manchester Recruitment is the Best!
What’s this? Manchester’s recruitment scene is outperforming the rest of the North!? Great news for you Mancunian recruiters, but don’t get complacent! There’s fierce competition in the recruitment industry (with over 9000 new agencies opening in 2017 alone) so it’s more important than ever that you stay ahead of the pack and future-proof your recruitment business.
I love to find advice and information specifically for northern recruitment businesses, and as the title suggests, the latest APSCo and VacancySoft Regional Trends Report for Northern England has exactly that. It often seems that there isn’t enough data and help out there for recruitment businesses ‘Up North’, so I’m delighted with this report!
Get Smart, Manchester Recruiters!
It’s time to get ahead of the game and review your strategy, focus on relationship building and researching how changes your niche will impact your tactics over the next 12 months.
This report gives critical insight into which sectors are growing and changing in the North West, how the market is performing and what recruitment agencies need to focus on this year to remain profitable and successful.
There’s vital stats and data in this report that can help inform your decisions over the next twelve months and propel your recruitment business forward. Now we can’t give away too much, but there’s a few key points to consider:
Manchester recruiters are outperforming the rest of the North so far – so pat yourselves on the back!
Manchester is a key city for development in the North – how are you going to stay ahead of the competition, knowing this?
The report outlines which industries in the area are booming (TMT recruiters listen up!) take advantage of this to help you develop your niche and generate leads
There are new businesses arriving in the North West with big hiring plans, and you should be networking with them! (use this info speak to your consultants about where they should be focusing their attention!)
Recruitment Marketing Event for Sales and ROI-Led Marketers
Recruitment Marketers need ROI from Marketing - whether it is more candidates, clients, colleagues, or cash... With that in mind, we presented the Marketing in Recruitment event with Members Only. It was for recruitment marketers who need to understand and prove ROI.Recruitment Marketers Need to Measure the Success of Their MarketingGenerating tangible ROI remains the holy grail for all recruitment marketers, but it can be a difficult goal to achieve. Simon at Members Only asked me to compere the event, so I used it as an opportunity to "pep talk" the marketers and their leaders.I talked about:The compelling reasons for sales and marketing to work together… 38% higher sales and 36% higher retention.How 98% of Marketers have experienced conflict with Sales at some point in their career and 73% of recruitment marketers are frustrated that their leaders just don't "get" them.What I think needs to happen for sales and marketing to be more connected and thus effective.If 60-70% of the content a marketer generates is never used, and 80% of leads are never followed up... what needs to happen?If 2/3 of the marketers who left their jobs last year said "not enough training", how on earth does the recruitment industry expect their marketers to generate any ROI?Read the slide deck from the event - food for thought?
