Northwest Hub: Managing talent round table

Discussion exploring staffing, recruitment and retention for operators




Calling all UKAA Operators


The Northwest Hub Steering Committee hosted a round table aimed at Operators exploring staffing and recruitment, facilitated by Dougie Orton Wade of Allsop and Hannah Dalton of Cobalt Recruitment.

Topics discussed:

  • How external factors are influencing the recruitment of staff  – Brexit, Covid, looming economic downturn, inflation.
  • Practical  processes affecting hires – internal recruitment versus  agency instructions,  length of interview process/number of stages, impact of delays, counter offers etc.
  • Standing out from the crowd  – salary and benefits, training opportunities, flexibility and progression pathways etc.
