Recruitment confidence is high, but employers are struggling to find the right skills they need to fill crucial roles. What are the key recruitment technology trends influencing how employers attract and retain good candidates?
There is little doubt that economic conditions are improving. Confidence in hiring intentions is high, with the Recruitment & Employment Confederation’s (REC) JobsOutlook reporting that more than eight in 10 employers plan to take on more staff in the coming months.
