Looking to Hire Permanent Staff in London?
If you’re looking to hire permanent staff in London, you have many routes to explore – you may want to post your job offer on:
- Your company’s website
- LinkedIn: post your job offer on your own profile and company profile
- Job boards: there’s plenty of job boards – some are generalists (e.g., Indeed, CV-library), other are very specialised (for example, workinstartups if you are a startup, or The Guardian if you’re involved in the public sector)
You can also mandate a permanent recruitment agency to help you find the candidate you need. Permanent recruitment agencies can be very helpful if you don’t have time to spend filtering CVs, or if you are in a very specific niche with severe shortages.
