How has the contract recruitment market behaved in 2023?

At the end of last year, we predicted that contractors will be instrumental to the success and growth of businesses in 2023. This prediction has proved true, with businesses engaging interim staff for the following reasons:

  1. Gain access to specialist skills
  2. Fill a gap in the team whilst finding the right permanent hire
  3. Ensuring a continuous workflow while new hires see through their notice periods
  4. Make impactful, senior hires for lower budgets

Why hire contractors before the end of the year?

On average, it can take 3-6 months from the start of the hiring process to see ROI from permanent hires. Plus, notice periods and holidays can elongate the hiring process even further.

Hiring contractors, on the other hand, can often take less than a week.

“We briefed Sarah Andrews for an Interim Marketing Manager role at our Executive Search firm on Tuesday. On Wednesday we had two excellent candidates, one of whom we landed quickly.”

Plus, interim staff can get started in a new role and make impact immediately. They’re accustomed to getting started in a new position quickly and so require less onboarding and training than permanent hires. A perfect solution for urgent hires.
