Brokers: Your skills are needed

by Caroline Dann17 Oct 2012

Mortgage brokers remain in ‘high demand’ across Australia’s banking sector, according to a new study.

The Hays Quarterly report found employers are making more strategic hires, focusing on candidates with ‘like-for-like’ experience.
“Employers are looking for candidates with like-for-like experience, including in the same industry and on the same systems,” said Jane McNeill, director of Hays Banking.
“More strategic in their hires, employers are also taking their time when they recruit to ensure that each placement is the right person for the job. As a result, the recruitment process has lengthened. 
In a blow to the diversification debate, McNeill says focusing on strengthening existing skills is crucial.
“We advise candidates to sharpen their existing skills and industry experience to enhance their value,” he said.
