Frazer Jones has been a market leader in HR recruitment in London for nearly 20 years and the Contract and Temporary business has always been imperative to our success. At present, the London job market is thriving and as the number of permanent roles continues to rise, strong candidates often find themselves in several interview processes leaving a rather exhausted interim market at certain levels and specialisms.
London is now considered the most competitive financial centre in the world. This accolade has been helped by the depth and breadth of business activity, with the strength of the professional services and insurance industries alongside traditional financial services giving London a boost in the rankings. Coupled with a melting pot of cultures and knowledge, London is often at the forefront of best practice HR and holds the most progressive attitudes towards HR strategy and its standing within the business.
Demand for HR Business Partners in London is exceptionally strong right now, closely followed by Graduate Recruiters and more recently Learning professionals. As specialists in contract recruitment, the team at Frazer Jones is continually instructed on roles at short notice, ranging from longer term maternity/sick covers and project roles to ‘temp to perm’ positions.
We usually see a steady flow of maternity cover contracts in the HR market, particularly at manager level. Now more than ever, employers need to make sure they hire comparable individuals to fill these vacancies to ensure the momentum of change programmes and pilot initiatives isn’t compromised in their absence. These maternity contracts are no being longer viewed as ‘babysitting’ positions, but offer fantastic career development and the opportunity for candidates to up-skill quickly.
As an HR professional who is looking to relocate, London has never been more attractive. The city continues to offer a wealth of opportunity as well as a fantastic base to travel into Europe.
With current market conditions set to continue, there’s never been a better time to move to London.
Please get in touch - we would love to hear from you!
