The 2020/21 UK Candidate Attraction Survey is now open for UK Recruitment professionals to take part.
Open to both in-house and agency recruiters, the survey seeks to understand and report back on challenges, trends and behaviours across the recruitment landscape, with the primary aim to identify the effectiveness of candidate sourcing channels. This year we may be in for a big change in what is working and what isn’t!
Now in its fifth year, the survey has reported on the most popular advertising and sourcing channels used, and which ones are performing best in each industry and sector. In this survey, we want to find out the current state of business operations and understand which channels and techniques you are currently using. You can get involved here.
The key findings are presented by sector and company size in easy-to-digest ‘Sourcing Quadrants’ that provide an at-a-glance ranking of channels – comparing candidate volume and candidate quality.
