Recruiters, if you’ve always had your eye on working for an amazing recruitment company but location has been a deal breaker because you weren’t able to commute to London, your options are now bigger than they’ve ever been.
A positive side-effect of the last 16 months for many industries, including recruitment, is flexibility and home working. Employees have proven that they can be trusted to carry out their job efficiently and productively, continuing to positive influence recruitment agencies bottom line, as they did when they were purely office based.
Flexible working or remote working has delivered the opportunity to find a balance, which means you can work for the organisations you want without being based there.
Whether you’ve wanted to work within a different sector but limited by location or you’re a working mum whose career choice were restricted by school areas and local business, now is the time to widen the search and invest in your career.
Is working from home just about work life balance, or is it about more? London companies have a higher basic salary. Previously these companies might not have been an option for you, without giving up your flexibility.
What we’re experiencing at GSR2R with our clients, is that many recruitment agencies have either adopted flexible working and some have introduced 100% remote working for all employees. This is great for organisations who can now expand their search for top talent, and equally great for you.
This shift in organisations’ views on having to be based in the office offers opportunities for recruiters to increase their income, while maintaining their existing lifestyle, location and outgoing costs, topping up your bank account and giving you the career satisfaction you want.
There is no better opportunity to consider your options outside of where you live, knowing that recruitment companies, like many industries, are on a hiring mission and struggling to find the right people.
You have the chance now to earn a recruitment salary in line with your skills and performance, regardless of location. With no increase to cost of living or travel, you can have capitalise on the addition of increased commission structures and benefits.
The truth is, recruiters, your organisation is lucky to have you. You’re employed because you get results. And now, you can bring your expertise into an organisation that inspires you and rewards you.
Until next time,
