This year The FIRM’s Manchester Autumn Conference takes place on 25th September. We’ll be presenting alongside Tom Beale, Recruitment Advisor at Medical Protection Society, one of our fantastic customers. There’s still time to bag your ticket directly from The FIRM’s website, we’d love to see you there. 

About The FIRM

The FIRM started as a LinkedIn Group in December 2007 and has grown to more than 8500 members in 67 countries. It’s a community of recruitment professionals that has both online and offline hubs where members can gather insights, download resources and network with peers.

The Tribepad team has attended, sponsored and spoken at a range of The FIRM’s events, including last year’s autumn conference. We support their events because we believe they give people who work in recruitment the opportunity to meet others in the industry, learn something new and hear inspiring case studies.

Contract v Permanent – come to our talk

Will you be there on 25th September too? If so, we’d love to see you at our talk with Tom Beale, who will be sharing his thoughts on balancing contract specialist with permanent staff. It’s a chance for you to learn how it’s done from someone who has proven experience in the area.

Tom’s talk will focus on the benefits of having a flexible specialist workforce while engaging, promoting and retaining those vital permanent team members. It’s a challenge that many businesses face, but with the right approach it’s possible to build a team that works together perfectly. 

The talk will cover the basics of how you can use contractors as part of your team. That might include working on specialist projects, BAU resource management or if your company relies on contingent seasonal support.

You’ll also learn about the important factors that might affect the availability of contractors. There are a number of external factors that influence the market, such as the gig economy, flexibility, portfolio careers, IR35, recruitment agencies and direct hire recruitment teams.

Have you considered how contractors are perceived by your permanent team? Tom will also look at how you can manage and improve their attitude towards contractors, who they may see as having the ‘rock star salary’ and ‘all the exciting jobs’.

One way of doing that to help make sure you retain those staff is to invest time and resources into their own development. Can you find ways to help stretch and improve their skills so that they are able to continue moving forwards at your company?
