Attracting top talent is the main aim of recruitment strategies, whether it is for a recruitment agency or a big corporate organisation. Both have the same main goal; to hire the best candidates available to fill their vacancies. Each business will have a different approach and motivation to attract talent depending on the company size and industry. Regardless of the techniques that are utilised, driving candidate interest to open positions and building relationships with job seekers is at the heart of all recruitment activities.

Today recruitment is candidate-driven. Recruiters need to be creative innovators and have sound insight into candidate behaviour. They also need to understand industry trends. By analysing data from our job distribution software, we can provide an up to date overview of recruitment trends and make valuable recommendations based on jobseekers’ search and application activities.

In this report, we look at job posting and application trends to get an overview of the recent employment market. Our analysis also examines the number of jobs advertised with ‘UK work authorisation’ as a requirement. We further analyse the performance of jobs in the UK versus those outside of the UK, as well as the number of jobs advertised offering additional benefits for employees.

The report also includes an analysis of candidate behaviour and the type of vacancies that do not attract applications. Finally, we focus on the application timeline and how long an average job post will be live online before a recruiter receives the first applications.

What you can find in the report:

  • Job posting and applications trend;
  • Jobs with EU work authorisation;
  • UK jobs vs jobs outside the UK;
  • Jobs without applications;
  • Jobs flexibility;
  • Time to apply.
