Friday, 13 January 2012New Year – New Website!
……and from all of us at Harvey Sutton we’d like to wish to you a very happy and prosperous New Year, and welcome you to the fresh new look of Harvey Sutton – Specialist Recruitment.
We decided that our old website needed somewhat of a spring clean, which has resulted in us launching a new site. We'd be happy to hear from you if you feel there is anything that we have missed, or there are certain topics that you'd like us to keep you updated with, in this news section.
In terms of the recruitment market it's been a busy start to the year! Our most active area is Corporate Recovery, and we have seen a large number of requirements from law firms even over the Christmas break, which was when a number of high profile retail administrations hit the national press; La Senza, Barratts, Blacks Leisure and Peacocks, to name just a few. Although we are seeing that the majority of high profile jobs are going to the big 4 firms, the mid-tier accountancy firms are starting to increase their headcount to deal with what we believe is going to be a busy Q1. An accurate illustration as to how profitable the insolvency market is is the recent news that KPMG announced fees generated in the MF Global case from November 2011 at £14 million.
The demand in indirect tax continues to show no signs of letting up, and we are actively seeking individuals for firms up and down the country with a particular focus on senior hires in London. On another positive note, some of our industry clients are starting to consider hiring due to a period of consolidation.
The share schemes and pensions markets are very busy with a number of roles across the board - in particular, senior roles are coming up in share schemes within the legal and accountancy sectors, whilst the recruitment demand in pensions is more junior to mid-level. There is a real shortage of candidates in share schemes in general, and the majority of the consulting businesses we are conversing with are identifying pension schemes as being the main area of concern for clients.
Our team of experienced consultants look forward to speaking to you over the coming months – whether it’s regarding a potential new role for 2012, or simply to update you with current market trends.
