Candidates and careers: a step change is designed with today’s candidate and clients in mind – what they want from their roles, what is important to them, what motivates them, what it takes to build the right team and how best to tackle the recruitment process.
The economic crash of 2009 and the subsequent impact on businesses across the globe has created a significant shift in how candidates approach their careers. Gone are the days when candidates will commit to a business for life and be chained to a desk for upwards of 10 hours per day. Today’s candidates are focused on building a career that’s right for them on both a professional and personal level. 
With an improved economic outlook and an increasingly buoyant job market we’re starting to witness a step change for candidates. Business is starting to boom and candidates can now look at opportunities to shape their careers, rather than let their careers shape them. 
But can businesses keep up? Our report, based on independent research, highlights a disconnect between the needs of candidates and how business approach both the recruitment and cultivation of talent. 
We hope the insights in Candidates and careers: a step change are helpful and useful. If you’d like to know more, want to speak to us about how we can help find the role that’s right for you, or how to attract and retain the best candidates, visit our career centre.
