In today’s market, we are constantly hearing about redundancies. Every other call we receive is another person urgently searching for a job.
Recently, believe it or not, we have experienced ‘redundant’ candidates being removed from our shortlists by the client, as they feel “it’s the weaker candidates who get asked to leave”. Of course, this can be the case, but not in the majority of cases.
There are many factors why people are made redundant. Some genuine reasons why our current candidates have been made redundant include:
Therefore, we are humbly asking employers to please put yourself in the shoes of these unfortunate people who are trying to support families and further their careers. There is no reason to eliminate a candidate just because they were made redundant. Please meet them first, and then decide if they’re the right fit for your organisation.
These candidates who could join your company immediately, would be delighted to start work again.
If you are hiring right now and have an urgent requirement, please call us and we can all help to change peoples lives!
