We’ve talked a lot about how the tech recruitment landscape has been changing recently. We all know that hiring tech talent is now highly competitive, with more and more companies, both tech native and not, competing for the same skillsets and experience. As a result, great tech talent is being swept up incredibly quickly, and it’s causing many challenges for scaling businesses that do not have the advantage of a big name or reputation to tempt talent their way.
However, what does a competitive market actually mean? It’s one thing for us to keep stressing that the market is changing and growing increasingly competitive, but how does it affect those searching for talent? As we have many recruitment experts in-house who spend their time navigating the tech talent landscape and speaking with leading scale-ups about talent acquisition challenges, we decided to ask them about the everyday difficulties they’re seeing.
No matter how streamlined and sophisticated your tech recruitment strategy is, poor onboarding can quickly undo your hard work. A scaling tech business cannot afford to be hiring every few weeks, which is why the onboarding experience is so crucial, especially in the current market.

In the tech sector there are more opportunities for candidates than ever before but may need to be faced with the right one to make a move. By reaching passive candidates while the recruitment market is so hot, you could open their eyes to a brilliant opportunity and find talent who feels as passionately about your brand and mission as you do.
The last 18 months have completely shifted the world of recruitment. To say it’s been turned on its head would be an understatement. Skills that were once in huge demand suddenly become less desirable almost overnight, and tech knowledge and qualifications have been growing in demand ever since. Entire industries have had to change the […]

We’re relying on technology more than ever; in our personal lives, in work and in the world of recruitment. Advances in technology mean we can connect with people across the globe, send vast amounts of information within seconds and leave those tedious, monotonous tasks to a computer. All of which is helping both businesses and […]
The last year has revolutionised recruitment. Among many other things, it’s forced a complete rethink of the interview process. We’ve been forced to find an alternative to face to face interviews, meaning a rise in virtual and video interviews. While talking to candidates over Zoom, Teams, or Skype has become the norm for many hiring […]
There are a lot of talent acquisition experts working with global players who sit on multimillion-dollar recruitment budgets. The reality is that most startups and mid-sized companies are trying to actively recruit without such large committed budgets, particularly in 2021, when hiring has been fundamentally tied to business recovery. Beyond this, while the real-life challenges […]
For those new to the world of talent acquisition, whether your business is just beginning to scale or you’re new to a recruitment role yourself, the industry can be a minefield.
