End your budgeting challenges today!
Get in touch to transform your annual recruitment:
It’s that time again – the budgeting pandemonium for the upcoming year, and in particular, allocating a budget for your Maritime recruitment in 2024.
You are facing a unique challenge – the requirement to secure the talent you need while managing the unpredictable nature of recruitment costs
Maritime businesses hire a multitude of job disciplines to achieve success within the market – planning your recruitment spend accurately feels impossible.
An HR Director (let’s call her Sarah) sits behind her desk, surrounded by an assortment of spreadsheets, market analyses, and hastily jotted notes.
She’s frustrated, desperately trying to decipher the maze of numbers and variables sprawled before her.
At the heart of her problem? The annual budgeting for her company’s recruitment spend.
Before the solution always comes the challenge! The maritime industry is a vast and multifaceted sector, riddled with industry-specific challenges that complicate the recruitment process (and budgeting for it)!
Sarah knows that her organisation will rely heavily on a diverse pool of experienced talent in 2024. Yet, organising the financial plan to source these candidates within the market feels hopeless.
The best candidates are passive talent – individuals happily working with your competitors who only know success! These candidates have the core competencies and experience necessary to drive your business forward.
But the time, strategy, and cost associated with sourcing them?
Also what will the market think of you directly headhunting as your own brand?
And finally do you and your current recruitment agency know where to find them?
In the maritime industry, a wide spectrum of skills is essential – ranging from in-depth maritime SaaS experience to a profound understanding of complex maritime regulations.
Additionally, as the industry continues to evolve towards digitisation and the Internet of Things (IoT), the demand for individuals with expertise in modern Maritime technologies has surged.
For Sarah to effectively identify the ideal range of skills required in the sea of candidates as well as forecast the cost for each unique hiring requirement, she will need a vast amount of support!
While Sarah is frantically trying to get the budget together to estimate the cost of planned hiring, she cannot begin to factor in the cost of replacing existing employees!
who plans on losing good employees?!
The Maritime industry’s relentlessly competitive job market results in frequent employee turnover, adding to the perpetual need for recruitment.
This dynamic element further complicates budgetary planning – as your budgets will lack the contingency plan of hiring for growth and replacing leavers simultaneously.
The root of all Sarah’s problems – the unpredictable nature of recruitment expenses.
These costs vary depending on salary negotiations, the efficiency of the recruitment process, and fluctuating recruitment fees – rendering attempts to create a stable and accurate hiring budget virtually impossible.
Standard recruitment fees are a fixed percentage of the candidate’s salary – but can you accurately predict each salary?
With various levels of candidate seniority, counter-offers, and negotiations in the mix – your fee could fluctuate from £10,000 to £60,000 with no way of planning!
This makes for a vague internal hiring plan, especially as you can’t even guarantee an efficient process every time.
Just one poorly managed hiring process can cause mass commercial downtime, internal time wasted, and decreased revenue.
If only Sarah could cover all her annual hiring for a fixed monthly subscription, ensuring an efficient hiring process that scientifically selects the best candidate every time….
