FutureYou launches contracting division
FutureYou has launched its executive contracting hub this month; a specialist contracting division of the company.
Simon Meyer, CEO and founder of FutureYou, said, “We are experiencing peak market conditions akin to a decade ago, where the level of demand for executive talent – permanent and increasingly short and mid-term contract roles - is at a notable high.
“This trend we expect to see continue in 2018 is not unique to NSW and Victoria; we are seeing unprecedented growth and significant pressure on skill sets nationally, which has been compounded by the recent visa changes.
“It has always been part of the FutureYou plan to create a strong balance between permanent and contract recruitment aligned to our purpose – to connect without limitation. Our new contracting division will work collaboratively with their permanent recruitment counterparts at FutureYou, drawing together expertise across each specialist practice group”.
With over 11 years of experience in contract recruitment, Kian Myers will lead the new FutureYou team as partner – contracting.
The contracting division, which is expected to grow to double within the first half of this year, currently focuses on business support, accounting & finance, human resources, property, marketing, digital, technology, procurement, supply chain & logistics, and engineering & manufacturing. Over the next 12 months, FutureYou plans to expand its contracting division to include construction, as well as establish a Melbourne-based team.
