What does the UK tech jobs market look like now?
The tech market is still active, but much less so. Hiring businesses with a strong grasp of what they’re looking for and processes in place to manage recruitment will be in a strong position.
Remote interviewing and on boarding have become essential – companies will need to have a process for executing this with the same degree of efficiency as they would interviewing and on boarding someone in person.
Most hiring businesses are employing a two, sometimes three-stage interview process, with an initial telephone call, take home tech test/challenge (or video pairing session), and final video interview, with the candidate ‘meeting’ a minimum of three team members.
We are finding businesses that tackle the virus upfront, and make candidates aware of their business’ plan, runway, funding and client base during the interview process, have a much better ratio when it comes to measuring CV – Interview – Offer – Hire percentages.
Client Server is uniquely placed to offer expert guidance and advice for managing recruitment during the Coronavirus pandemic. Contact us on 0207 090 2500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more.
