Recruiting the best candidates and attracting highly skilled talent to your company brand at a senior level can prove to be a competitive environment.
Offering a flexible working approach is often sort and valued by experienced, senior candidates – the flexibility enabling them to deliver the best for the role and enabling you the ability to attract a wider pool of the best available talent.
In a recent Survey conducted across a wide number of brands in the Travel Industry by Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment, we found the number of Companies who have a flexible working policy in place, or employ staff on a flexible basis is high:
- 70% had flexible working hours/location positions.
- 72% had working from home variants
- 57% had part time roles
In addition, 75% of Companies are using Freelance/Interim/Contractors regularly or occasionally.
The percentage of Companies operating with some level of flexibility within specific roles indicates the Travel Industry is open to embracing the changing demands of the workplace and that it is recognising the benefits to both the Employee and Employer.
As a result of our Survey, we are taking an even more pro-active approach to providing our Clients with flexible resource recruitment solutions. With a bigger focus on flexibility from senior, highly skilled talent when considering permanent roles, coupled with a growing pool of experienced Interim/Contract Candidates, this can be leveraged to secure the best talent and meet the needs of your business.
Interim, Freelance and Contract positions can help provide an effective recruitment solution to today’s business needs, both on a short and long term basis, tapping into immediately available, specialised skillsets. Whether this is to add resource to a stretched area of the business, deliver specific projects or cover a role whilst a longer term search is underway, flexible working solutions can add great value.
In addition to outstanding, talented individuals looking for permanent roles with flexibility, we have an extensive, experienced talent pool available for Interim positions.
