    Kerry Consulting’s director Declan O’Sullivan said his headhunting firm now needs to shortlist more candidates for each job, because it is common for those shortlisted to receive other offers while the recruitment is in progress.

    “Our workload per recruitment exercise has probably gone up 50 per cent – as compared to two years ago – simply to maintain our previous response standards,” he said.
