3 Ways to Get Ahead of 2016 Hiring


Jobs may be easier to come by these days, with the latest ONS data showing the highest number of job vacancies in the UK in 14 years.

As a result of a thriving recruitment market, everyone is looking for a job right now. Well, almost everyone. Our latest findings from an Indeed survey of over 2,000 adults in the United Kingdom found that people are managing their careers very differently today:

  • The job search is always on—63 per cent of adults in or looking to enter the labour force look at jobs at least monthly.

  • “Passive” candidates are a thing of the past. The #1 activity for people hired within the last six months was visiting an online job site like Indeed.

  • The talent you need is actively looking online. 90 per cent of those who are employed and were hired within the past year said they actively looked for a job in the six months prior to being hired for their current job.
