Accountancy firms in #Wales are refining the way they attract #staff in the face of tough competition for #talent.

Five #accountancy firm leaders interviewed for the October/November 2021 edition of Wales Business Insider magazine named recruitment and retention

among the top challenges facing the #industry.

David Hughes, senior corporate business manager at DSG, based in Flintshire, told Insider: “To support the growth of the firm, we need to attract the right calibre of staff. The competition for talent between the larger national firms and regional firms is very strong.”

Deloitte, which has 1,500 staff in Wales, aims to create an inclusive work environment and use technology to eliminate routine and repetitive tasks.

Ian Howse, senior partner of Deloitte in Wales, said: “We focus on wellbeing and embrace flexible and hybrid working arrangements, as we recognise one size does not fit all when it comes to balancing work and personal lives.”

Today is the 1 year anniversary for Amy Jones our Accounts Administrator.

Having joined us at an interesting time for many businesses, she quickly embraced our methodologies and flexible working. In the last 12 months she has significantly improved on our existing accounting processes and bookkeeping which resulted in our recent grading of “Excellent” from our external accounts.

Amy has fitted in very well with the team and is a vital component of our operation. Thanks for all your hard work Amy and good luck finishing off your AAT studies later this year!

I am really pleased to announce that Amy Sweetman has been promoted to Office Manager.

Amy joined us in 2019 as Recruitment Resourcer, then moved into an Office Administrator role and now #Office #Manager.  Amy will assume responsibility for all the back office processes here Heyland Recruitment , which includes overseeing all the Admin, Marketing, social media, I.T, Training & Development, Staff initiatives and most importantly the role of team social secretary!

Amy’s role is to ensure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes, something that she has done with gusto and thus the #promotion.

Amy has proved to be a real asset for the #business – her ‘can-do’ attitude and positive nature definitely bring out the best in people – we have enjoyed every minute of her time with us.

Congratulations on a thoroughly well-deserved promotion.

The world is opening!

Lockdown measures have eased, the pubs are now open, we are able be see friends and family, and likely already planning the next trip abroad for some well needed Vitamin D ☀

We’ve all experienced #pandemic fatigue and looking for things to return to normal, so why would you want MORE upheaval with a job search?

Following #lockdown and unfortunately, mass #redundancies across multiple different #industries, thankfully now, there are relatively few people unemployed and we’re reportedly heading towards an #economic boom which will see some sectors flourish and head into growth phases.

There are some exceptional #jobs out there at the moment, and at this moment in time, minimal competition from other candidates. This will change soon, likely towards Winter, where after the summer period we see a rise in people looking for a #new #challenge! That is why NOW is the best time to look for something new, if you were considering a move.

We are working with some of the most exciting businesses that we have ever worked with, and even better, we’re working on fully #remote working opportunities. You can be working fully flexible hours around your current lifestyle, and we have seen a lot of our clients amend their benefits packages to attract the best #candidates in the market.
