The first 6 months of 2013 have been a busy one with many of our clients seeking to recruit HR professionals in to both generalist HR roles and more specialist areas such as Learning & Development, Compensation & Benefits and Graduate Recruitment.
A similar pattern is emerging this July and in to August and beyond with clients looking to recruit in a number of areas. These include the need for experienced Recruitment Managers, Learning & Development Managers in London, Hong Kong and Australia respectively, Employee Relations specialists and interim and permanent HR Business Partners. Medium-term, a growing number of HR Directors are also expressing a real interest in more junior, high potential HR professionals.
If, as we suspect, this trend continues then we believe that the second half of 2013 presents a real opportunity for HR professionals to take that next step and progress their career. For anyone thinking of doing so then we would only be too happy to hear from you and/or chat to you more generally about your HR career. Simply contact Michael Pickup at Oyster.
