It’s here! We’re excited to announce the launch of Candidate Behaviour: The Big Report.

Created in partnership with Monster, we’re aiming for this to be the most comprehensive report on candidate behaviour in the industry.

We asked 800+ UK jobseekers to tell us what they thought about the end-to-end recruitment process.

We’ve left no stone unturned. From pre-application research to psychometric testing, we asked candidates what they think, feel and do at each stage of their journey.

Crucially, each insight is also supported with real-world tips and advice that you can put into practice from day one.

Access the full report to discover:

  • The biggest turn offs for prospective candidates
  • How candidates research and make decisions about potential employers
  • Candidate attitudes to working post Covid-19
  • And, of course, what you can do about it all

Why is this research so important?

Understanding your candidate base has always been essential. But, after a year like no other, it’s even more crucial to have an insight into the behaviour and sentiments of your candidates.

Our focus has always been to support in-house recruitment teams to hire more efficiently, securely and effectively. We hope this research – one of the most comprehensive recent candidate behaviour surveys – will provide valuable insights for UK employers and ensure they continue to meet changing candidate expectations.” – Emma Johnson, Head of Customer Success
