Market Update – February 2015

The month of December filled both Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners with Christmas cheer, as it proved to be a bumper month. Despite being regularly perceived as a quiet time of the year for recruitment, Chilworth and Venture managed to place seven permanent accountants, as well as three on an interim basis.

As both Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners push on through January, both businesses continue to receive an influx of opportunities, with several new roles becoming available. As recruiter.co.uk informs, January and the rest of 2015 looks “brighter, particularly in some areas, for accountancy recruiters and accountants themselves so employers cannot be complacent about hanging on to and attracting the best talent”.

In other news, due to the success of the Business Breakfast in late November 2014, both Chilworth and Venture are in the early stages of organising their next breakfast event, bringing a lot of excitement to the office! More news in relation to this topic will appear in due course.

If you are looking to secure your next senior accountancy role or interim assignment please do not hesitate to get in touch for details about the positions and assignments we are currently handling. These can be viewed on both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, TwitterLinkedIn and Google+ for further exclusive information.

Market Update – November 2014

As we lead up to Christmas the market shows no signs of slowing at The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners.

On the contrary, November has already shown a peak in activity. With a string of prestigious clients keeping both sides of the business incredibly busy, we are pleased to announce that The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners are enjoying a successful month.

With local companies now turning on the tap to recruit new talent, both our businesses have found the market to be candidate-driven over the past few months. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation states “Candidate availability continues to fall sharply” (October 2014). These conditions are ideal for the few businesses like ours with their own in-house research functions. The burgeoning confidence in the market has seen The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment Partners placing six permanent candidates and five new interim candidates. More importantly, there is a growing order book which will enable us to finish 2014 well and start 2015 with a high degree of optimism.

Furthermore, with confidence growing in the local business community and with more candidates moving into new roles the interim market is blossoming. Companies are looking for more immediate solutions to deal with new project requirements, staff shortages and longer lead times in identifying and securing good permanent talent.

We are pleased that places at our highly anticipated Business Breakfast on 27thNovember with Dr Steve Bull, Sports Psychologist and inspirational speaker have been in high demand. If you are unable to attend or have been unsuccessful in securing a place at the breakfast you will be pleased to hear that a write-up of the event will be posted on our websites in due course.

If you are looking to secure your next senior accountancy role or interim assignment please do not hesitate to get in touch for details about the positions and assignments we are currently handling. These can be viewed on both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, TwitterLinkedIn and Google+ for further exclusive information.

Market Update – September 2014

Based on early activity so far we are confidently predicting that September is going to be a very busy month for Chilworth and Venture.

Whilst the thought of summer ending is not a desirable one- the increase in job opportunities within finance and accountancy certainly is!

Although there was a slowdown in activity during August due to the summer holiday period, The Chilworth Partnership and Venture Recruitment still managed to place 4 qualified accountants into permanent roles. A further 2 interims have been introduced to assignments across the Hampshire and Dorset area.

In the coming months we expect to see more roles becoming available on an interim, contract and permanent basis in comparison to last year’s figures. With reports showing that business expansion is at its fastest in over two years, it is no surprise that there is a noticeable increase in demand for qualified accountants.

Market Update – August 2014

The usually unpredictable British weather has provided us with one of the most glorious summers to date- all just in time for the school kids 6 weeks holidays! With this sunny weather comes a fleet of exciting events surrounding the Hampshire area; from the Boat Show in Southampton, to the Bournemouth International Air Festival this summer is one that is heightened by the exciting activities our area has to offer.

Despite the temptation to bask in the sun, Chilworth and Venture have remained in the office hardworking as ever, instead channelling this brilliant positive weather through our respective business over the last month.

However as summer has kicked in, the financial recruitment market is showing the traditional tell-tale signs of slowing down. Despite this fact, Chilworth and Venture have not fallen to this trend; instead, in July  five qualified accountants have been placed in roles that have furthered their career. Furthermore, two interim managers have been introduced to assignments across the Hampshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley areas, supporting the growth and development of our clients.

If you are looking to secure your next opportunity in the prestigious qualified accountancy sector, please do not hesitate to get in touch for details of all the roles were currently handling. Jobs can be viewed on both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ for further exclusive information.

Market Update – July 2014

We’re now into the height of summer and the weather has been surprisingly good these past few weeks.  Also, the World Cup is nearing an exciting conclusion, Wimbledon, the Isle of Wight Festival and the British Grand Prix have come and gone and there have been – and continue to be – numerous other cultural and social events going on in and around Hampshire, Dorset and the surrounding areas.

Despite all these distractions, Chilworth and Venture have managed to reflect the weather’s sunny disposition in our respective businesses over the past couple of months.  Although the market is showing signs that the customary summer slowdown is starting to kick in, Chilworth and Venture bucked the trend in June by helping eight accountants to take their next step on the career ladder.  We have also assisted four interim managers in finding their next professional challenge, in the process actively helping businesses across the Hampshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley to grow and develop.

Market Update – March 2014

We’re now into the third month of 2014 and we seem to have just about weathered the storms that were battering the south coast since Christmas.  We’re even being treated to the odd burst of sunshine.

This month brought the very sad news that Dennis Turner, former Chief Economist of HSBC, has passed away.  Dennis, a speaker at one of Chilworth Partnership’s events, was known for his anecdotal style, irreverence, insider knowledge and wit all of which combined to leave the attendees of our event with a pragmatic and relatively optimistic outlook for the British economy.  Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

On a lighter note, this month we have noticed a dramatic upturn in instructions, especially in the IT and interim finance markets, having made six interim appointments in the month  whilst securing permanent offers  for seven happy accountants.  If you’re looking to secure your next opportunity in qualified accountancy or IT, please get in touch or for details of all the roles we’re currently handling, check out the jobs pages of both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

This is the first significant change we have seen in market conditions over the past few years, which has brought increased success for the Chilworth Partnership, along with our sister company Venture Recruitment Partners – in the past month we have been chosen as a main supplier to B&Q for all their qualified accountancy needs.  We have also expanded our Preferred Supplier status with several new high-profile businesses.  For information about how we can help your business fulfil your recruitment needs, visit www.chilworthpartnership.co.uk andwww.vrpartners.co.uk.

The Chilworth Partnership is proud to announce the introduction our latest business offering, this time in the IT field and what better person to head our new section up than Emma – a highly-experienced IT recruiter who has over 15 years of multi-sector experience in the recruitment of interim, contract and permanent technology professionals?

Following the soft launch of our recently qualified to mid-management financial recruitment division – Venture Recruitment Partners – in September, January also marked the official launch being celebrated in the Edwardian surroundings of Chilworth Manor Hotel.  Guests were treated to drinks and canapés, with guest speaker Peter Bewsey appropriately discussing his views on launching new ventures in the Edwardian surroundings of the Chilworth Manor Hotel – all of which was very well-received.  For details of our future events, plus information about how we can help your business fulfil your recruitment needs, visit www.chilworthpartnership.co.uk and www.vrpartners.co.uk.
