Spinnaker Global: ‘More planning around recruitment’

Leigh-On-Sea: Recruitment in maritime has changed dramatically during the downturn, with a far greater proactive focus than in the past, says Steve Cox, the ceo of leading HR firm, Spinnaker Global.

“For now what we do see is much more planning around recruitment and talent management rather than employer clients being reactive and hiring hastily,” Cox tells Maritime CEO.

Cox says the real test is sorting the clients with real and urgent needs from those who are simply sounding out the market.

“Overall, the market has become much more candidate-led,” Cox says, explaining: “Which means that we recruiters have to be smarter in spotting the types of individuals whose skills are in short supply in the market and making sure that our clients are aware that they are available.”
