Six months since lockdown, Totum Directors Gary Jones & Deboray Gray share their views on the professional services recruitment market and the different areas of business services. We have seen a healthy uptick in roles in all areas of the business (typical roles can be seen below). Our BD & marketing team are always busy but it’s our finance team that have really been in demand, perhaps unsurprisingly in the current climate. We have also recruited seven operational & transformational roles – while interest in these roles has been rising for some time, Covid is accelerating activity here. Deborah & Gary also talk about the roles that are likely to be further in demand over the coming months and the new roles needed in HR, D&I and change & transformation. 

Some of the different types of roles we have placed over the past six months:

  • Chief Technology Officer
  • Director of IT
