Keeping ahead of the game

The Recruitment Industry Insights newsletter is a great way for consultants and managers to maintain their expertise

Given the vast and dynamic nature of the employment market, there are a multitude of sectors and niche verticals which are constantly changing. Individual consultants should be on top of everything which is happening within their specific market, so that they can present themselves to their candidates and clients as experts. Meanwhile, managers need to maintain an active interest in the trends across all verticals in order to know how to adjust their strategy to reflect recent hiring trends.

The Recruitment Industry Insights series includes a unique weekly newsletter which offers up-to-date analysis of vacancy trends so that subscribers can keep ahead of the game. The newsletters feature reports that provide detailed analysis of vacancy trends within specific verticals. These reports are co-produced with leading players in the recruitment industry as part of a dual thought-leadership strategy, and all analysis is performed using Vacancysoft’s high-grade vacancy data.

The analytical reports in the newsletters include the following:

Regional analysis: for this series we have partnered with APSCo; past reports have focused on specific regions of England (such as the South East, London, and the North) and we have also produced reports about the whole of England and Wales.
