The future of recruitment:

The modern recruiting landscape has been transformed by technology and AI, which have significantly impacted the way recruiters find, engage, and evaluate candidates. 

By leveraging technology and AI, recruiters can also incorporate diversity and inclusion practices into their processes. AI algorithms can be trained to mitigate unconscious biases and ensure fair evaluation of candidates, leading to more diverse and inclusive hiring decisions.

Overall, the modern recruiter needs to be a specialist in their industry sector, armed with the knowledge of the client's industry, and equipped with the latest recruiting technologies and AI tools. This combination allows recruiters to act as strategic partners to their clients, effectively supporting their talent acquisition efforts and promoting an ethical and responsible employer brand.

Fun Fact:

Karen once worked with Jeremy Beadle on the TV program ‘Beadles About’ to set up a temp to think he had inadvertently let a Vicar steal a car from a sales showroom.

I highly recommend Karen Gittins for all your recruiting solutions. I’m grateful to Karen for searching so diligently over many months for our reporter vacancies and proposing so many excellent candidates. I’m delighted with the hires we have made thanks to Karen’s services.
