  • Top-Consultant.comGlobal Opportunities in Consulting2012 Market update and expected hiring trends
  • During December 2011 & January 2012we surveyed 153 consulting recruiters to gaugelikely hiring trends in 2012 --> Hiring expectations taken across the UK consulting industry are positive but more subdued than at this time last year --> Greater competition to hire “hot skills” and an increasing problem of counter offers derailing recruitment efforts --> Increased pressure to deliver "Just In Time" Recruiting – aligning recruitment with project wins --> Pressure to deliver on hiring needs heightened by candidates’ increased risk-aversion when considering a moveSource: Top-Consultant surveys of 153 recruiters and 1,272 consulting candidates
  • Our survey of 153 recruiters showed64% of organisations expect to increase hiring thisyear but only 21% expect to do so aggressivelySource: Top-Consultant survey of 153 recruiters
  • Of particular interest is the historical trend which showsour recruiters have a track record of being verygood at predicting changes in hiring activitySource: Top-Consultant survey of 153 recruiters
  • This year’s findings showrecruiters expect less hiring than was expected atthe beginning of 2011 but much more than in 2009Source: Top-Consultant survey of 153 recruiters
  • Delving further your responses show thatfinancial services and energy & utilities are thepractice areas expected to see the most hiringSource: Top-Consultant survey of 153 recruiters

  • Though our candidate responses suggestit will remain harder to entice candidates awayfrom their current employerSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • Top-Consultant.com Global Opportunities in ConsultingRecruitment channel usage and the role of social media
  • The key finding from our candidate survey is thatonly a minority of candidates are using socialmedia to apply for jobs --> Almost all consultants have a profile on LinkedIn and characterise themselves as “active” users --> The majority are using social media to expand their professional network. But only a minority have applied to jobs via this channel or approached recruiters direct this way --> Candidates do not anticipate changing this behaviour in the coming year, so social media remain most potent as a channel for proactively engaging candidates rather than as a passive medium for trying to attract candidate applicationsSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • Our 1,272 candidate respondents confirmedthere are huge variations in the saturation enjoyedby different application channels Application channels used during last job huntSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • The survey also demonstrated thatsocial media sites generate limited applicationscompared with job boards and rec. agencies Share of Total Applications generated by each channelSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • Candidate responses show thatconsultants are active users of some social mediasites… Social media on which consultants are an *Active* contributor / userSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • But intriguingly also show thatConsultants use social media primarily to expandtheir professional network and stay in touch Social media on which consultants are an *Active* contributor / userSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,272 consulting candidates
  • Looking to the future, the key finding for recruiters is thatthere’s still no dash to social media as a job-hunting channel Channels candidates intend to use for next job huntSource: Top-Consultant survey of 1,216 consulting candidates
