An expert has warned that a lack of suitable candidates within the HR sector could be a "cause of anxiety" for the profession.
Personnel Today reports that Deb Clarke, joint director of HR at Tower Hamlets council, said that there is currently a "death of talent" in public sector HR, graduates may be interested to know.
Ms Clarke made her comments after the council had unsuccessfully attempted to find a suitable candidate to fill the post of joint assistance director of HR, according to the news provider.
"Having just tried to recruit to this role, the [existing] bright sparks are few and far between, with the up and coming bright sparks even scarcer," she commented.
Meanwhile, a new survey by Taleo discovered that 30 per cent of HR managers questioned said that retaining employees would be their "top challenge" over the course of this year.
