Italy market update (2013)
Changes in healthcare and life sciences in Italy
The Italian healthcare and life sciences market is currently stable, which is due largely to the spending review approved by the government. Ironically, any difficulties faced in recruiting in the sector are also due to the financial condition of our state.
The market is seeing an excess of candidates, but as usual, recruiting to a niche continues to be difficult. The current trend is to hire with low salaries and push the career development opportunities and if it’s possible, the brand of the company. This has coincided with candidates demanding opportunities to study, a clear professional development path and the potential to work abroad.
Social media has always been of great importance to the way we search and select talent and LinkedIn is becoming an increasingly vital tool for our practices, especially in cases where time is of the essence.
We don’t foresee any major changes in the market before the end of the year, which means that it is unlikely that there will be any developments in our recruitment practices.
