Pandemic challenges | The UK Candidate Attraction Survey Results Are In!

The UK Candidate Attraction Survey Results Are In!

At the end of 2020, we launched the Annual Candidate Attraction Survey 2020 - the largest survey of its kind that provides detailed analysis of which sourcing channels are delivering the best results for recruiters within specific industries and company sizes.

As we analyse the findings ready for the report launch, which covers over 150,000 individual data points, we can see that early analysis shows several differences from previous years. This comes as no surprise based on the pandemic we continue to live through and its impact on the economy.

We will be sharing the headline report data in a free webinar in partnership with HR Grapevine on 25 February at 11.00 am, and we invite you to join us for this insightful session that shares:

  • The biggest challenges in candidate sourcing and how this compares to previous years.

  • Which sourcing channels provide the best quantity and quality candidates.

  • The impact of recruitment marketing tactics on candidate attraction.

Ahead of the webinar, here is a taster of the results that hundreds of recruiters have contributed to:

  • Over the next 12 months, 19% of respondents expect their level of hiring to decrease.

  • 35% of recruitment teams face a reduction in their recruitment marketing budgets for the next 12 months.

  • Recruitment teams face many challenges, as expected, the disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic features highly. Once again, scarcity of qualified candidates is among the biggest challenges in many industries, but companies are increasingly struggling to cope with the volume of applications for their advertised roles.

This is just a summary of some of the survey findings, and the webinar will provide a deeper dive into the results, with breakdowns by industry sector and company size. Everyone who attends the webinar will, of course, get a copy of the full report that provides over 70 pages for planning your candidate attraction strategy with actionable insights.

We want to thank all of the recruiters who took part in the survey and look forward to sharing both the early findings and the full report download shortly.

You can register for the webinar here and if you can’t wait until then, download last year’s full report.
