4 trends reshaping public sector recruitment


It’s a turbulent time in the public sector, with increased workloads and ever-tightening budgets making it imperative to fill each and every vacancy with the best possible candidate. What trends are transforming the public sector recruitment reality?

Financial constraints are making it tough to attract private sector talent; an ageing workforce has made recruiting young people an increasingly urgent priority; a trend towards combined roles has left managers looking to fill unfamiliar gaps in their teams; and a shrinking pool of active candidates has dried up the talent pipeline.

According to “Senior Recruitment: A Whole New Ballgame”, a new whitepaper from the public sector recruitment specialists Jobsgopublic, organisations looking to survive and thrive in the face of these challenging trends are required to transform the way they deliver their services and communicate with citizens — but also, importantly, attract and retain members of staff.

As Jobsgopublic writes: “At this point, efficient senior recruitment becomes an absolute necessity. Put simply, it must target the best talent to do so in a way that is achievable within tightening financial constraints.”

This whitepaper outlines how these four trends might be just the impetus your organisation needs to ditch the expensive headhunters and overhaul your recruitment process, driving transformation from within in the process.
