Tanner Menzies - Unemployment graph


What does this mean?

  • There will be increased competition for labour and knowledge workers.
  • Due to Australian border closures there is a reduced opportunity to bring resources from overseas.
  • This brings increased opportunity to individuals who want to work, want to progress their career, want to learn new skills and want to investigate new opportunities.
  • Skilled recruiters will thrive and should prosper in this environment.
  • In house recruitment will outsource to specialist recruiters, particularly when they have been unable to secure an outcome.
