Simply Jobs Boards has released its first annual jobseekers report for 2018 this week.
The organisation has revealed key findings surrounding professionals in the Aviation, Automotive, Law, Sales and Marketing industries.
The report looked at 859,555 jobs advertised over the last two years.
The research includes data on salary, gender, age range, category profiles, job hotpoints and top growth areas. The figures contributed derive from the top five job sites which operate under Simply Jobs Boards, including Aviation Job Search, InAutomotive, Simply Law Jobs, Simply Marketing Jobs and Simply Sales Jobs.
Key findings in particular reveal how male oriented the aviation industry is presently, and how the demand for technicians in the automotive industry has contributed to a surge in the average salary being offered for the role YoY.
The report also reveals information surrounding a jobseekers motivation to find a new job, which showed that 49% of jobseekers surveyed were ‘looking for a new challenge’.
CEO Ian Partington, said:
“This is a first for us, and I’m really pleased with the end result. We wanted to be able to give recruiters an insight in to how or why jobseekers search for jobs, to help improve their own recruitment strategy.”
It’s very much a candidate’s market today, so if we want to attract and retain top talent, particularly the Millennial generation, we have to adapt our strategies to meet their needs – which is where data like this proves useful for anyone reconsidering their recruitment processes.”
