The demand for PR and Communications talent is at an all-time high. According to the ICCO and Holmes Report latest trends, 44% of PR agencies principles cited staff recruitment as this greatest challenge for 2016.

According to Hayes recruitment, in the UK 65% of marketer’s plan to increase headcount over the next 12 months, yet 82% expect there to be a skill shortage. Hiring in today’s economy is tough, the industry is growing on a backdrop of a lack of hiring during the recession years; new skills that previously didn’t exist are now in high demand; the explosion of the high growth tech industries are swallowing up talent, and the rise of the freelance economy as people shun permanent employment for a better work life balance.
