The importance of becoming a “Destination Employer”

After the traditionally quieter summer months of recruitment things are now starting to pick up in the market and gather pace. The job market and interim recruitment is constantly developing but are these changes being truly understood and effectively adapted to?

At Macallam Interim, we continually challenge the recruitment landscape to keep pace with talent acquisition and understand the importance of building a "talent pool" ahead of client needs. Statistics show that whilst 95% of candidates are employed 75% will always be receptive to attractive and professional propositions.  Often in permanent search the people in the job market who are actively looking are not the best or most suitable people for your vacancy. Equally available interims aren't necessarily the best fit for a particular assignment, so our focus is about building strong relationships and having a pre-vetted network of executives available to call upon.

Candidates are not just looking for any new opportunity - they want the right one and Macallam Interim assists employers in creating a positive company culture and brand identity to attract top talent. Providing a winning candidate experience through positive employee engagement programmes and “selling” the clients business to the candidate can make the difference for a successful outcome and is often overlooked in the direct hiring process.

UK businesses remain firmly focused on growth which is increasing the demand for highly qualified interims with specialist skills to support them. Their immediacy, flexibility and affordability is very appealing. Clients understand the importance of creating a positive company culture and brand identity in order to achieve “Destination Employer” status. After all, business is about people and it is only the right talent that will help drive your business forwards.
