April sees record number of charity job vacancies, reports Recruitive
A record number of charity job vacancies were advertised in April, according to Recruitive.
With a near record of 751,000 vacancies reportedly on the UK job market, the number of jobs advertised via Jobmate, Recruitive’s multi-posting software, stood 2.25% higher than the previous record held in January 2016.
A number of industry sectors including health care, catering, retail and leisure, experienced a record number of vacancies advertised in April. The number of vacancies advertised within the charity sector was up just over 2% on the previous record held in February.
Sarah Dickens, marketing manager at Recruitive, commented, “With the current high level of vacancies and with 31.4 million people now in work, recruiters need to think carefully about their talent acquisition methods and application processes. Their ideal candidate is likely to already be working and not necessarily actively looking for another job opportunity. If they do some across a vacancy that they are potentially interested in, they are likely to be put off applying by lengthy application forms and additional tests.”
