Last week’s further fall in unemployment prompted REC chief executive Kevin Green to warn HR and recruiters of a ‘candidate scarce’ market in the New Year.

Despite the predicted January job application surge that scarcity of candidates will force employers to become more responsive and forward thinking in their recruitment processes. Here are some reminders of the basics to attract more candidates to your vacancies:-

Use normal job titles

The current number of vacancies stands at an estimated one million and some companies are turning to what they hope are attention grabbing job titles to attract talent. Global jobsite Indeed revealed that ‘ninja’, wizard’ and ‘genius’ have all featured in this year’s job adverts.
