What does Angela Hickmore, MD of BrightPool, put down this success to?
“People are at the core of all that we do. Our consultants are highly experienced at working with both clients and candidates to establish the detailed information needed to place the right people or multi-disciplined teams in the right jobs. This requires us to be fast and effective at establishing a 360-degree view of our clients and their resource needs. Equally, we are passionate about understanding our candidates and their career aspirations. Matching resource need with the best possible talent is what drives us and enables us to deliver great results.”
During 2011 BrightPool noticed certain trends which are likely to continue in 2012. Says Hickmore:
“For contractors earning between £250 and £500 per day or permanent staff earning up to £100k per year, the market in 2011 saw some distinct trends. A high proportion of our roles were focused on Risk (39%) but this encompassed a wide selection of skill-sets such as operational risk, credit risk and regulatory risk. Core finance was also a high priority (34%) although these roles were often linked to projects based on cost reduction or efficiency improvements. A number of our clients are involved in significant change programmes at the moment and this will continue into 2012. I expect a busy first quarter where key areas of recruitment will be in regulation, finance, risk, and compliance.”
