Recruitment Trends for 2017


Despite the continued uncertainty in press reports, online and seemingly everywhere we look, about the potential impact of Brexit, Trump and now the new elections for Stormont, the wheels of industry keep turning. New deals still happen and new talent is still required. Riada are certainly finding this is the case with more and more clients ready to recruit.

According to research from UK job sites, which analysed the average number of jobs in the UK’s key sectors in 2016, applications in leisure/tourism saw a 31% rise, followed by an increase of 24% in design and 13% in catering last year. Sectors that also saw a substantial increase in applications during 2016, included agriculture (up 41%), manufacturing (up 30%) and automotive (up 23%), with figures expected to maintain momentum in 2017.

Frances Lundy, Founder & Director of Riada Resourcing comments...

"Riada has always had a strong and growing temporary division however during 2015-16 we have seen a resurgence in the permanent sector. I founded the business on finding the perfect person for my clients. As a recruitment professional it’s what I love to do. The growth we are experiencing has enabled me to strengthen the team, bring in new talent and restructure the business so we now have specialist recruiters in specific business divisions listening, searching and delivering for our growing client base."
