Talent.

Everyone wants it, no-one seems to be able to find it.

March 2017 saw the fastest decline in permanent candidate availability in 15 months according to a Markit/Recruitment and Employment Confederation UK Report on Jobs, and REC Chief Executive Kevin Green commented: “Finding people to do the jobs on offer is rapidly becoming employers’ biggest headache, and many are reporting an increasing number of white-collar jobs as hard to fill, including in the IT and financial sectors.”

There’s a new mindset in play with the growth of the gig economy. Employees care more about work/life balance and personal fulfilment, compared to the traditional rewards of status and job progression. Consequently many talented individuals have left the permanent job market.

But there is plenty of talent about. You just have to know where to look for it.

At gigCMO we’ve selected the best Chief Marketing Officer talent who now work on a fractional basis in the gig world and who love applying their deep and broad experience to businesses looking for an injection of what they do best. CMO brains can be applied in one intensive burst, part-time, interim, drip-fed or parachuted in to tackle a major change requirement. In fact, a ‘gig’ can be anything our client requires. At lower cost, lower risk and better value than the old hiring model.
