Have you chosen your next holiday destination?

By Julie Stewart

MANY people spend longer researching their holiday destinations than they do evaluating their new job offer or their prospective employer.

For others, a job isn’t just a job – it’s their career. It’s where we all spend most of our time and, if we’re lucky, it’s our passion. So, it makes sense to objectively evaluate any job offers that we receive, as well as fully understanding the values and culture of our potential new employer. We have found this is becoming more and more the case as good candidates are hard to find in this current economic climate.

Generally, within the finance and IT sectors people are staying put in their current job and will only move for more interesting step-up roles or the next new technology. They are becoming very specific around what they will move for. This doesn’t always mean an offer of significantly more money, but around incentives such as, holiday entitlement, bonus, car – or, the total package that’s on offer? Other things attractive to potential employees are a better work/life balance and flexible working. Sometimes it’s as simple as a role closer to home or an easier commute.

Given this, it’s crucial that businesses focus more on what’s important to the candidate, and that candidates fully understand the potential employer’s business purpose and values. TD Group works closely with our clients to provide guidance around candidate expectations, role definition and recruitment strategy as well as talent acquisition and retention. TD Group has successfully grown and evolved to meet these ever-changing needs and trends in resourcing.

We believe our extensive experience in working with a diverse range of SMEs and corporate clients enables us to not only identify the correct skill sets and personalities, but to really understand the true essence of what is required for the role and organisation.

Being based in Silverstone Park, next to the British Grand Prix circuit, and being part of the Silverstone Technology Cluster was a pivotal move for us. We already work nationally and would welcome the opportunity to work closely with more Northamptonshire-based businesses to help with their challenges to find good employees who will shape the future of their business.
