technology recruitment

Technology is already an indispensable part of business regardless of the industry in which the company operates. According to Eurostat already in 2021 more than 60 % of EU enterprises that recruited or tried to recruit ICT specialists had difficulties in filling ICT vacancies. How is technology industry limited by lack of competent specialists? And how to deal with them so that your business doesn’t suffer? Let’s find out.

Technology recruitment

Whether you run e-commerce, operate in the FinTech sector, are a member of a public sector team, or implement new automotive solutions, in order to remain competitive you must offer your customers products full of the latest technologies. Consequently, you need to have specialists on your team to help you implement, improve and maintain them.

However, if you are open to new solutions you can efficiently deal with building a team based on the newest technologies. There are many recruitment services specializing in finding IT professionals on the market. An example would be cooperation with professional recruitment company specializing in your industry, providing executive search for permanent roles. You can also use contract recruitment solutions.

Global recruitment service

As reported by Business Market Insight the online recruitment market in Europe is expected to grow from US$ 7,384.59 million in 2021 to US$ 12,656.76 million by 2028. It’s no wonder that there are more and more professional staffing companies on the market, since even the largest organizations are having trouble hiring.

This is despite the breaking down of the territorial barrier made possible by remote work. Now both employees and employers do not have to limit themselves to their location, but can compare nearshoring and offshoring depending on their needs and choose the option that suits them best.

The race for the best employees can also include companies that currently have complete teams. Why? Because of the market shortage, their employees may be invited into the recruitment process by competitors (4 out of 10 companies point to this problem)

Lack of tech-talents

One of the significant challenges in software technology recruitment is the scarcity of specialized skills. With emerging technologies reshaping industries, the demand for experts in these fields has skyrocketed. As a result, companies often find it challenging to identify and attract individuals with niche skill sets, leading to prolonged hiring processes and potential talent gaps within the organization.

McKinsey has identified 7 key competencies that are in greatest demand as the industry modernizes: 

  1. DevOps
  2. Customer experience
  3. Cloud
  4. Automation
  5. Platforms and products
  6. Data management
  7. Cyber security and privacy.

If your company is having trouble finding such specialists you already know why. And if you have them on board, it’s worthwhile for you to be mindful of potential problems with turnover. 

Furthermore, the fast pace of technological advancements poses another hurdle. The rapid obsolescence of certain skills and the emergence of new ones mean that recruiters must keep up with the latest trends to understand the precise needs of the tech roles they are hiring for. Failure to do so may result in recruiting candidates with outdated skill sets, hindering a company’s ability to stay innovative and competitive.

Recruitment Solutions

Before the pandemic triggered significant changes in remote work and e-commerce, a survey conducted by McKinsey revealed that a staggering 87% of senior executives worldwide admitted that their organizations were ill-equipped to tackle the digital skills gap. This finding highlights the pressing challenge faced by employers in non-tech industries, who now face even greater pressure to adapt to the digital landscape.

Fortunately , globalization gives access not only to candidates from different countries, but also to international recruitment solutions. 

Software technology recruitment offers exciting chances for companies to transform their operations and achieve significant growth. Therefore, it is important to consider incorporating different recruitment models: contract recruitment, IT outsourcing, software development outsourcing, RPO, or hiring specialist recruitment agency.

Recruitment agency

Many businesses, both large and small, are turning to recruitment agencies to streamline their hiring process and secure top-notch candidates. The cooperative relationship between companies and recruitment agencies has proven to be mutually beneficial, ensuring a more efficient, cost-effective, and successful hiring process.

They specialize in identifying, sourcing, and screening candidates for various positions based on the specific requirements provided by the client companies. Recruitment agency provides access to extensive candidate databases, industry knowledge, and recruitment expertise, making them valuable partners for businesses seeking exceptional talent.

Often recruitment agencies offer permanent recruitment solutions that will bring the right specialist to your team on a permanent basis. 

IT outsourcing

IT outsourcing with a recruitment agency offers businesses a strategic advantage in meeting their technology-related needs. By partnering with a specialized agency, companies can tap into a vast network of IT professionals with diverse skill sets and experience levels. The recruitment agencies have in-depth knowledge of the IT industry, enabling them to identify candidates who possess the specific expertise required for the project or position. 

Whether businesses need temporary IT support for a specific project or are looking to fill permanent IT roles within their organization, IT outsourcing through a recruitment agency streamlines the hiring process and ensures access to top-notch talent. Moreover, the agency handles the candidate screening, interviews, and background checks, saving the hiring company valuable time and resources. 

This cooperative approach fosters successful IT outsourcing partnerships that empower businesses to focus on their core competencies while having the assurance of a proficient and dedicated IT team to drive their technological endeavors forward.

Executive search is a specialized form of recruitment that focuses on sourcing, assessing, and selecting top-tier executives for key leadership positions. Unlike traditional recruitment, executive search goes beyond advertising and job postings. It relies on proactive and targeted search methodologies to identify suitable candidates who possess the skills, experience, and cultural fit required to excel in senior-level roles.
