Your intelligent automation recruitment questions, answered

Are there lots of intelligent automation professionals looking for jobs right now?

As it’s a relatively new discipline, the number of experienced professionals is very low, and they are in very high demand. However, Programme Managers, Project Managers, Business Analysts, Developers, Testers, and Service Managers with other tech backgrounds can be upskilled and developed into positions involving intelligent automation.

What qualifications should I look for in intelligent automation professionals?

Certain vendor certifications are a requirement for developers in this space, including UiPath, Blue Prism or accreditations from Automation Anywhere.

Should I just hire for technical skills when recruiting intelligent automation professionals?

Technical skills are important, but you must look for a strong set of soft skills too: the best professionals will also have good stakeholder management, communications, and other soft skills. Personal attributes like attention to detail, a dedication to upskilling and good problem-solving skills will also help them succeed in this innovative area.

Aside from a good salary, what can I do to attract these professionals?

Obviously, a competitive salary is vital, and your offering should be benchmarked. But aside from this, opportunities to train and upskill are welcome – offering to pay or subsidise qualifications such as UiPath, Blue Prism or accreditations from Automation Anywhere will help attract talent. Stress that your organisation recognises the value in an innovative intelligent automation team and the role they play in the wider organisation.

How can I assess intelligent automation professionals so I hire the right person?

Don’t focus too much on whether someone has experience in your exact industry, as this will seriously reduce your talent pool – and the shortage of professionals means that you can’t afford to wait for top talent to come to you. Assess for technical competency by checking their qualifications and having a technical assessment in place.
 
Once you’ve established that they have the right technical skills, ditch that CV and talk to them. Find out if they can communicate well and clearly, ask about problems they’ve had to overcome in the workplace to get a feel for their attitude and aptitude, and find out if and how they keep up-to-date with the latest AI and machine learning developments away from work.
