While recruiters in the UK are keen to compete in the war for talent, many still lack an effective arsenal.
When compared to American numbers, the findings are often startling. For instance:
- Social: 60% of UK professionals don’t recruit using social media—but over 90% of recruiters in America do.
- Speed: Almost 25% of UK recruiters can hire a candidate in under 10 days, but only 5% of American recruiters can say the same.
- Sweeteners: When it comes to providing perks, UK candidates want to work from home (44%), but Americans want health insurance (63%).
- Spend: In the UK, around 60% of recruiters invest less than £1,000 on all of their recruiting efforts, while in the US, only 35% of recruiters work with a budget that small.
