  • Why future recruitment will be all about data

    OK, I’ve got to say GDPR, but I’m not here to sell expensive consultancy to bring back all those dreadful memories of BS5750 and Y2K, writes Clive Jefferys of telecoms recruiter JMA Network.
  • Keep calm and carry on recruiting

    With 30 million people employed in the UK responses to adverts, social networks and jobsites may be at an all-time low. But hundreds of thousands of people move job every month and you can still recruit more staff if you try hard enough, writes Clive Jefferys of Telecoms recruiter JMA Network.
  • Keep it personal and real

    Running your own business can be a lonely affair. You spend most of your days and nights dealing with opportunities and threats, you don't often get much chance to sit back and contemplate the bigger picture.
  • Enthusiasm is just the job

    Candidate availability in the UK fell to its sharpest level in four months in September while the availability of temporary workers also fell at a historically marked pace, according to the latest IHS Markit/REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) Report on Jobs.
  • Job prospects brighten in telecoms sector

    With unemployment at its lowest level for 40 years and wages rising, employment prospects for skilled job seekers are bright. The big issue now is the quantity of active jobseekers, or rather the lack of them, writes Clive Jefferys of recruiter JMA Network.
  • Generous employment creates generous profits

    Of various client and prospect meetings over the last few weeks two have stood out in my mind. You might well call it a Tale of Two Employers. Why?
  • Why UK uncertainty favours today’s jobseekers

    After a tumultuous period of electoral surprise and tragic events, there is a palpable sense of trepidation across the country at the moment, writes Clive Jefferys of Telecoms recruitment agency JMA Network.
  • Confident companies win confident candidates

    These days, perhaps more so than ever, business people need a crystal ball to help plan for the future, writes Clive Jefferys, Managing Director of recruiter JMA Network.
  • Stronger economy demands smarter recruitment

    On the one hand, doom-mongers ply their gloom in the wake of the B-word. On the other, the economic outlook is bright, we have plunging unemployment and growth in consumer spending, writes Clive Jefferys, Managing Director of recruiter JMA Network.
  • Money proves just the job in 2017

    So the hiring year has started briskly. The first new vacancies started coming in just before Christmas and then the real flood arrived during early January.
