          Ben Wood (1995 and 2021)  Ben Wood is a name not many of you will be familiar with. Only his colleagues and those at the pointy end of Australia’s largest IT recruiters are likely to know who Ben is. Yet Ben is one of the most accomplished leaders of the…

Ad-hoc recruitment strategies won’t cut it any longer

                My 14 October blog FOMO and 6 other reasons ‘the great resignation’ will hit Australia in 2022, has become my most-viewed (and commented) blog of the 45 blogs I have published this year. It’s hardly surprising, as it’s a topic that has burst out of the recruitment…

Questionable public sector recruitment practises a trap for unwary recruiters

As I highlighted in last week’s blog those agencies who recruit for governments at Federal, state and local levels have to deal with counter-productive contract terms, red tape, slow payments and onerous reporting requirements, amongst other frustrations. A much lower profile risk, but a real risk nonetheless is the potential for inadvertent involvement in the…

Federal Government clueless (again) with latest recruitment tender

Even after 32 years in the recruitment industry I am still slightly bewildered by the ignorance, or worse, lack of interest in educating themselves, which some very highly paid and senior people can demonstrate when it comes to understanding the realities of modern-day recruitment. This week another disappointing (depressing?) example was brought to my attention.…

Ignite shareholders push for change (again) as Sladden digs in

The appalling performance of Ignite (formerly Clarius, formerly Candle) across the past 8 years has been well documented by me over the years (most recently in 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017). The 2021 financial year results produced, yet another, operating loss at Ignite in a year that the Australian recruitment industry roared back into profit…

The @TheEconomist editorialises: Boris Johnson has always been unfit to be prime minister
With him in office, Britain can expect a rough ride

New data from the @britishchambers saw a record proportion of firms struggling to recruit staff. The proportion of firms in the UK reporting difficulties filling roles reached a historical high at 79%, up from 77% in the previous quarter.

Workers in Ireland will be offered pay hikes of up to 20% as employers become locked in bidding wars to attract talent.
A shortage of skilled staff in some high-demand sectors means salaries are set to surge, according to @MorganMcKinley @Independent_ie

Over recent years the government has made it much more costly and difficult for an employer to sponsor a registered nurse or a software engineer while making it cheaper and simpler to recruit an easily exploitable farm labourer. @MichaelWestBiz

The drop in skilled workers arriving in Australia has hit the economy, and it began in 2014. From a peak in 2013 of 106 skilled migrants for every 10,000 Australian workers, this ratio has declined every year. @alanaustin001 reports for @MichaelWestBiz
