Hiring trends in the UK in 2015

From the second quarter of last year, employers across the majority of sectors began to actively search for new talent as business confidence made a strong return.

With candidate supply already limited in several areas of the market, this significant increase in hiring rapidly exposed shortages across the board. Some employers struggled to respond effectively, which resulted in a number of positions remaining unfilled and existing employees coming under increased pressure.

With shortages set to intensify in 2016, employers will increasingly require professionals with transferable skill sets as they focus on developing talent internally through training and mentoring.

We also expect to see growing numbers of mid-career professionals retraining to make themselves eligible for careers in high-growth sectors. This will be particularly evident in the fast-growing digital industries, where multinationals are investing heavily in the UK to make use of British talent. Experienced professionals taking the initiative to up-skill will be particularly attractive hires to employers.
