Don’t let your competitors get the best Digital/Tech Talent before you do … Big Wave Digital

Big Wave Digital recruitment based in Waterloo, Sydney is starting to see some concrete evidence to suggest that the demand side is really starting to heat up for talented Digital Media and Technology professionals in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Dayna Stewart, Head of Digital Recruitment at Big Wave Digital has been very busy lately with a huge spike in demand from her clients and sees “the market going crazy for Data related analysts. I haven’t seen it this busy in years.”

Even though inflation is low combined with historically low interest rates with this level of demand across the board for Digital Account Managers, Campaign managers, BDM’S, Data Analysts , Front End Developers , ios developers and mobile developers we have to start seeing salary’s creep up over the next 6 – 12 months.

So as an employer it is important not to wait 6 months, try and at least plan for your staffing needs sooner rather than later. Otherwise you will miss out on top, Skilled Talent to your competitors.

Big Wave Digital’s consultants all have over 12 years commercial recruitment experience so have been around to see various cycles in demand for talent.

Keiran Hathorn Managing Director of Big Wave Digital , who focuses predominantly on Technical related and Executive search based roles also sees the market moving in the right direction.

” You have to remember that any business vertical is cyclical by nature and we are heading into an upturn on the demand side for Digital and Technical Talent. 2013 was the lowest rate of new job creation in 17 years and we are also at near 10 year high unemployment levels so cyclically we are coming off the bottom of the jobs/employment cycle. I see the demand side start to gain momentum and see the 2nd half of 2014 as a boom year in recruitment services, all you have to do is look at Real Estate in Sydney 2 years ago and compare where the market is currently and where it was 2 years ago, recruitment and the war for talent is no different. Things are about to get a lot tougher as business conditions and sentiment increase”.
