July and August are popular months for taking time off and generally there is a lull in business activities that allow for strategic planning or (quite often) catching up on other work! As part of your planning you should consider kick starting any recruitment you had in mind.

Think carefully about any upcoming vacancies. You may already know what you would like to do about that! Don’t be tempted to put it off. Your next awesome hire could be doing a job search during the quieter months.

There is another reason to start early. According to a recent report, filling a vacancy can take longer than expected. Setting your recruitment activity up early means that you will be ahead of the game when things ramp up in September. It can take time to get a new staff up and running, so get them in as early as you can – come January renewals time (there are a lot of those!) you will be on it!
