February 2014 marks the finish of our financial year- a good time to look back at the recruitment trends in the banking and finance sectors, over Africa. In closing the year off, knowing the overall pic of the before year, it helps to program the year ahead as well as to improve on inadequate decision-making.

Recruitment trends for the period February 2013 - February 2014

Certainly not all strong skill is available

Many candidates, whom are best for our clients' positions in Banking & Finance in Africa, tend to be happy at their current business. Management treats them well, they have job satisfaction as well as thus are certainly not hunting to move except if "for the right opportunity."

Since Africa exposure is a skill which many candidates tend to be vying for, this really is usually the thing that gets the prospect interested; the salary increase also helps, of course. Most of our clients are happy to pay for the right candidate, that is something that many companies cannot budget for.

Africa Recruitment trends in the Banking and Financial sectors show a shift in our clients' demands, requesting our headhunting services (more so than general recruitment). Companies realise that employing the cheaper option is certainly not always good for long term company sustainability. We headhunt from our clients' direct competitors, which provide that edge that will make them a leader in their respective sectors.

The perfect prospect for a part is certainly not always on the market- you should make it worth their while to make a move, especially in the Africa recruitment marketplace.

Strong skill has options

Once the ideal candidate who is active on the market, is identified, we often find that there are multiple business vying following this candidate. Recruitment trends in Africa, in the Banking & finance sectors, show that candidates work with more than one recruitment fast to find new opportunities for them. Given that some companies have panel interviews (where you need to co-ordinate diaries); the process gets delayed, so candidates will often have second as well as third interview at more than one company.
