Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire: the new recruitment hotspots

Blur Bright Close Up 1078850

Henry Nicholas Consultant, Poonam Thaker talks about her specialist territories in the home counties and why they’ve become the place to find and place outstanding talent in marketing, digital, and eCommerce. 

Although one in three new jobs created in the UK over the past decade has been in London, there’s been a considerable growth in three regions outside of the city.

Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire are rapidly becoming key areas for ambitious marketing, digital and eCommerce professionals due to them being home to some of the most exciting blue chip organisations and innovative startups in the UK.

I work with some fantastic clients located in these regions who are looking for talent and offering amazing opportunities for career progression and development. Additionally, each has a commitment to nurturing company culture, an increasingly important selling point for today’s candidates.

As a result, and despite talent shortages in the fields of marketing, digital and eCommerce elsewhere in the country, businesses in these three regions, in particular, are seeing substantial competition for roles. This means a lot of clients who may not be actively recruiting will do so for a first-class candidate, and it’s my job to match them with candidates who would be an excellent fit for their business.

If you’re looking for an exciting role in the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire regions, or you’re a business in search of outstanding talent, contact me on 0117 317 8103 or let’s connect on LinkedIn.
