Q4 2023 Recruitment Trends Report: The impact of flexible working on recruitment

In our Q4 2023 Recruitment Trends Report, we detail jobs and applications data that reveals the state of the UK’s labour market in the fourth and final quarter of the year. Applications increase to their highest figures of 2023 and jobs slow but do not plummet.

We also dig into data that illustrates the evolution of flexible working from pre-pandemic years up until now. It’s a deep dive into how much flexible working has changed – and continues to change – the fabric of the labour market, how it’s impacted recruitment, and what we might see in 2024 and beyond.
