What are the top eCommerce recruitment trends for talent attraction in 2024? With a busy year ahead at Cranberry Panda, we wanted to share some of the trends we will be following as the year progresses.

2023 was a year of building new relationships, personal brands and broadening international talent horizons – but what is in store for 2024?

AI and automation in the hiring process

With the continued advancement of technology, companies are leveraging AI-driven tools and automated processes to streamline and enhance their talent acquisition efforts.

From initial candidate screening to interview scheduling and even aspects of decision-making, AI is playing a pivotal role in making the hiring process more efficient and data driven.

Automation not only speeds up the recruitment timeline but also allows recruiters and hiring managers to focus on more strategic and personalised aspects of the hiring journey.

Contract or fractional hires

To address the dynamic requirements of growing businesses, more and more companies are making the decision to include temporary, interim, contract or fractional hires in their eCommerce recruitment strategy.

Whether they are looking for someone who can hit the ground running or are looking for business transformation experience in short bursts - this flexible approach not only provides agility but also empowers companies to efficiently navigate the evolving landscape of the eCommerce industry.

Return to the office

While remote work has gained popularity among professionals and businesses globally, there is a notable shift toward requiring teams to return to the office.

Zoom, Amazon, and Disney are among the prominent names making this transition, illustrating a broader trend in the corporate landscape.

Candidate experience

Prioritising an outstanding candidate experience has always been essential, and now, it's more critical than ever.

Numerous hiring managers and eCommerce recruitment agencies provide a variety of communication methods, whether through calls, video chats, or emails, to cater to all candidates and clients. This approach can be especially meaningful for individuals who may feel uneasy with conventional communication styles.

This is just one example of how recruitment agencies will be prioritising the candidate experience in 2024.

Sustainable recruitment

Teaming up with eco-conscious companies is a big deal for job seekers, especially in eCommerce. With the industry's tendency for overconsumption, there's a growing expectation that businesses will embrace ethical and sustainable practices to attract the best talent and remain competitive.
