In the near future, the growing economy and demographic changes in Europe will result in a significant labor market shortage. This will lead to an increasing number of occupations facing labor shortages, requiring employers to find increasingly creative solutions to attract qualified personnel.
Vacancies that remain open for extended periods of time often have underlying reasons. At Get Headhunted Group, we conduct thorough research on such vacancies, starting with an analysis of the actions taken by the organization. In this preliminary investigation, we examine the following aspects:
What specific requirements are outlined in the job description?
What level of expertise and knowledge is required in this specific discipline or technology within your industry?
How is your organization perceived and valued in the job market?
Is it a critical and influential position within your organization that requires trust?
Based on our experience, we have observed that due to this scarcity, the expectations placed on new employees are increasingly high. There is often a search for the well-known "unicorn" candidate who possesses specialization along with multiple disciplines, areas of expertise, high educational qualifications, multilingualism, leadership qualities, preferred location, or specific personality traits.
At Get Headhunted Group, we provide solutions for hard-to-fill vacancies through our extensive network, years of experience in the job market, and unique recruitment methods.
We continuously monitor labor market trends and adjust salary structures and other criteria that may impact the search for suitable candidates. In some cases, expanding the recruitment scope and attracting talent from outside the Netherlands may be advisable.
Furthermore, we guide you through the preparation process to onboard the right person. By discussing the candidate's preferences and ambitions in advance, we increase the chances of a successful onboarding experience. We understand that a candidate approached for a position requires a different interaction than an applicant who applies proactively.
