Employment rates on the rise

From all at Jo Holdsworth Recruitment we hope you and your family are safe and well.

It’s just over one year since our last news update and I am pleased to say that it has been a pleasure to see so many of our clients back on track and prospering, while either returning to the office or successfully continuing to work from home.

We have seen a significant turnaround since lock-down measures were eased with many of our clients recruiting in similar or at higher levels to pre-covid conditions.

According to a report by KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) job vacancies in the UK have risen at the fastest pace in 23 years and the number of permanent jobs reached record highs. This suggests that the economy is bouncing back more quickly than expected after Covid restrictions eased.

Long may it continue!

Updated Covid-19 Statement

From all at Jo Holdsworth Recruitment we hope you and your family are safe and well.

As we continue to face unprecedented times the Jo Holdsworth Recruitment office remains closed and we will continue to work remotely as a team.

At the JHR office we have found there has been a mixed reaction to remote working, some colleagues are enjoying the freedom and flexibility that working from home brings, to those experiencing the challenge of balancing work with childcare and homeschooling. A definite positive has been the push (we needed) to embrace technology we had in place such as office 365 and virtual meetings via teams.

We would like to reassure our clients and candidates that although we have experienced a huge decline in the number of active jobs in the Yorkshire job market we are still here to support and are looking forward to working with our clients and candidates as the market picks up, we expect remote on boarding and remote working to be a new norm for the future, we expect to continue to use video calls to engage with our candidates and clients and to continue to build lasting relationships in a new working environment. We have seen a number of our clients using video technology to conduct interviews and have seen our clients evolve to remote onboarding.

If there are other ways that we can support you, please let us know and we wish you the very best of health.

Many thanks

Jo Holdsworth
