We can’t believe it’s May already, and JF Recruitment’s latest newsletter is here to bring you updates, news and advice on all things recruitment.
Candidates Invest in Businesses That Invest in Them
In a candidate-led job market, it’s becoming increasingly common for job seekers to lean towards employers who offer a complete employment package.
EY has just released their 2022 Work Reimagined Survey, showing that 43% of employees are likely to quit their jobs, motivated by higher salaries, better career opportunities, and increased flexibility.

Following on from this, Linkedin’s recently published top companies of 2022 makes for interesting reading. The companies ranked as the best places to work all had one significant thing in common… a great benefit package built around the needs of their employees.
We’re proud of our reputation for working with great employers, which is why we’re so pleased to see many of the same flexible benefits being offered by our own clients, including:
- Dividends and profit shares
- Enhanced bonus
- Additional holidays and emergency holidays
- Study support

Jobs we’re glad aren’t a thing any more…
Knocker-up – Up until the late 1970’s, before the alarm clock took over, the only way to get to work on time was to hire a knocker-up who would shoot peas at your window to wake up.
It’s impossible to hum while holding your nose (just try it!)
Our Clients Say…

Jo’s Top Tips
Recruitment Strategy should be Priority
It’s no secret we are in a widely candidate driven market at the moment, with many sectors struggling to attract the talent that they need to thrive and grow. That means employers must take action to consider how they present their positions to the community. It’s not just about salary.
Benefits package, development opportunity, progression, management style and culture all impact a candidate’s choices and journey when considering which job they will accept next.
However, succession planning needs to play a part in your strategy, as the latest labour market figures from ONS indicate a ‘over-50’s exodus’. So, whilst the youth employment figure is slowly recovering, there’s a huge amount planning to depart (some employers are already starting to see the effects of this).
Pension planning and investments have been on everyone’s minds during the pandemic, therefore it’s crucial that businesses have plans in place to fulfil these roles. Whether they be back office, senior exec level or otherwise.
We speak to clients every day to discuss six, twelve and twenty four month recruitment plans, so whether your business has growth plans, or simply wants to continue trading at current levels, it’s important to have this strategy in place.
Like anything, it’s about decision making, creative planning and taking action
