Why you need a recruitment partner in 2023

The current UK recruitment market is remarkably unpredictable.

With the cost of living crisis impacting candidates and businesses alike, and inflation adding to the ongoing pressure for business leaders to keep an eye on spend, there is a lot of negotiating happening during hiring processes. And rightly so.

The candidate-led market still rings true

The data centre market in particular is seeing a noticeable increase in vacancies. The global data centre market is projected to reach a value of $517.17 billion by 2030, despite the fluctuating economy, which is giving hiring managers enough breathing space to recruit for the employees their organisations need.

So, what does this mean?

It’s time to assess specifically what it is that your business needs to either a) maintain revenue, or b) increase revenue and scale. If you are either replacing employees that have moved on, or your organisation is growing and you are in need of new data centre talent, it’s advisable to work with a specialist recruitment company to ensure you don’t complicate or lengthen the hiring process.

Why is working with a recruitment company advantageous?

It’s likely that over the years you’ve heard about ‘the pros and cons’ of working with the recruitment companies, but that doesn’t necessarily still apply today. Not all recruitment companies have a long list of cons, and some have very few.

The pros of working with data centre recruitment experts is mainly based around the consultative aspect of the partnership. 

The vast majority of data and tech roles are rapidly increasing, as well as developing – every year there is an increased demand for people with data centre experience, and new roles being created. 

For this reason, businesses that are looking to recruit new employees are best placed to work with specialist hiring experts who not only understand your brief, but can advise you on the best possible roles for your team, how you can go about hiring them, and still remain in budget.

Recruitment consultants – not recruitment assistants

Utilising the skills of a trusted recruitment partner goes beyond getting in touch with them when a vacancy arises. 

Letting a specialist data centre recruitment company be a part of your conversation throughout the entire hiring process – from initial conversations about roles that may benefit your team, to actually interviewing the best talent available – is what will help you find the people who aren’t necessarily ‘on the market’.

Talent teams and portals are fine for some areas, industries and roles, but when your business needs to fill high level tech and engineering roles, that is when you need to consult with a recruitment partner. 

There will be a large pool of talent that your business or your internal talent team may not have access to – from people who aren’t actively looking for jobs, to those who aren’t on LinkedIn or job boards. 

Specialist recruitment companies have long-standing relationships with candidates who they’ve worked with in the past, who could possibly be the best fit possible for your organisation.
