  • Why doesn't RBS hire candidates with the relevant experience directly on short term contracts?

    There are some high level unemployed candidates out there!

  • I've got to agree with Anonymous. It seems RBS is in the same situation as the law firms themselves, trying to find ways to deal with increased work flow but reluctant to actually hire more people.

  • Perhaps because, much of the time, they don't have to pay secondees???

  • It's a sad fact of the current downturn that firm (and businesses) are attempting to, as the above two posts state, do more work with less people to increase their margins. This of course means they are better shaped to deal with any further downturns, but it all seems a bit like trying to shut the gate after the horse has already bolted. Of course the situation is difficult, but this hiring freeze is short sighted. I myself am now going abroad-and likely to stay there- because they are hiring. It is not a case anymore of there being no work.

  • Looks like some firms have made a few too many redundancies then.

  • How many more banks are posturing until they reveal they are more likely than not, "Lehmans-types in the wings"?
    If they are financially well, then the negative press is something people really need to think about given our recent traumatic year or so.
    Sentiment affects investment, unfortunately. Cold hard facts should be the only drivers but even those are becoming more sketchy than ever.
