What matters to candidates
With UK employment at its highest ever, at 75.1%, there are many positive things in the UK job market to be happy about. But as the economic world adapts to disruptions in technology, skills shortage, Brexit, and inflation, employers are facing new challenges.
At a time of political and economic uncertainty, many UK businesses face tough times in recruitment.
We understand the concern, and how hard it can be. We also understand employer marketing, and our understanding always starts with research.
So to gain a better understanding of today’s recruitment challenges, we worked with reed.co.uk to dig deeper into job seeker behaviours, and find out what matters to them. We set out to find this in answer to three key questions:
- What makes people move?
- How much does company brand, reputation and values mean when changing jobs?
- What can recruiters do to gain the edge in the competition over talent?
Our unique survey received almost 2,000 responses from potential employees. Then, to bolster our findings, we cross-referenced them against those of potential employers. It was incredibly revealing, which we’ve boiled down to 8 things you need to know.
From the role of social media, traditional marketing routes, annual reports, to even expectations of the application process, our latest white paper offers plenty of insight to help guide you down the rocky road ahead in recruitment.
