The state of hiring for Future Talent

​In 2008, I ran a team of people who placed graduates (future talent) across many different roles and industries. Naturally most of these businesses were deeply affected by the financial crisis. Future talent hiring all but ceased. 

Understandably, most businesses are focused on our short-term plans at present and navigating the multiple and new challenges that we all face.

Yet in a few years when, hopefully, our businesses are back to a new (and improved!) normal, if we have not hired junior talent there will be a significant skills shortage in the place that we already see it the most; candidates with circa two years’ experience in something technical, client-facing and often both skills together.

We want to understand how we can support you and our customers now and in the next six months. How can we help you to hire a diverse range of junior talent to enable our sectors to have a pipeline of talent in the future and to ensure that the future talent that is available to hire in 2020 have roles to move into.

It would be great to get an understanding from you as to:

  • Whether you intend to hire future talent in the next 3 months
  • Whether you intend to hire future talent in the next 6 months
  • What % vs previous years of future talent do you expect to hire in Q2 and Q3 of 2020

And finally, we’d love to know what Sphere can do for you that would be most useful and make the biggest difference, and that would enable you to hire future talent in the next 3 months?

Answer a few quick questions here... 

Thanks, and as always, if there’s anything myself or any of the team can do to help in any way then don’t hesitate to ask. Feel free to get in touch with me via
