I am Graham Martin , The Recruitment Guy.
In my 30th year at the sharp end of recruitment at Orchard Recruitment, I am one of the UK’s most experienced hands on recruiters, having personally helped more than 1787 (and counting) people find permanent work and many more thousands obtain temporaries opportunities.
With out being too boastful, the job seekers that I arrange interviews for benefit from my outstanding 3:1 interview to job offer success ratio. On average people go for 10 interviews before they are offered, my candidates only attend three! Having interviewed more than 10,000 job hunters I have honed my skills and intuition so that when combined with psychometric profiling and objective skills testing, I really do know what makes people ‘tick’.
I cover IT, sales, engineering,logistics, marketing, accounting & finance, management and board level appointments.
An accomplished speaker, I have presented to thousands of secondary school and college students across the UK regarding careers advice, ‘How To Get The Best From Work Experience Week’, ‘How To Succeed At Interview’ and more recently ‘How To Survive The Robot Revolution’.
With the Governor of The bank of England, Mark Carney predicting that artificial intelligence (AI) will obliterate 35% of all jobs in the UK by 2030; today’s students, undergraduates and graduates need to be aware of the seismic shift that is currently changing almost everything about the way we live and work. With 95% of accountants themselves predicting that AI or self learning accounting software will destroy many of their traditional practices; it’s time to re-consider such historically ‘safe’ professions. Lawyers, bankers, investment analysts’ careers will be severely impacted. In fact any function that is predictable and routine WILL be taken over by AI. Of course, MacDonalds has already invested millions of dollars in creating vending-only take away outlets and restaurants putting at risk 1.4 million staff across the world, but do you realise that AI is already x 4 more effective at detecting some cancers than the human eye? Don’t spend 13 years qualifying as a radiographer!
But, what are THE jobs to focus on, which careers will be aided by AI but not destroyed. Will any positions NOT be affected? Let me tell your audience…
I run regular ‘Careers Clubs’ for job seekers at weekends and provide 1:1 Careers Coaching via a variety of on and off line courses.
My book “How to Recruit & Retain (The Right) Staff” is available on Amazon.
My You Tube videos, notably the series for Employers, Job Seekers and the careers interviews ‘How To Become A…’ have obtained international renown and my content is used in class rooms for careers lessons across the English speaking world, including the USA, South Africa, Canada & Australia. With a massive You Tube audience, my content has been viewed over 3 million times.
