Is your recruitment process losing you candidates?

There are many hurdles every organisation face when recruiting, and finding the perfect candidate is not easy. But have you ever wondered if your recruitment process is influencing the candidates which you attract?


Current research from CV Library has revealed that in a sample of over 1,000 employees’, UK workers are being far more selective during their job search and are often unwilling to compromise on specific job criteria.


It is important to note that some of the recruitment process issues putting candidates off are:

• Unclear job descriptions

• Lengthy recruitment process

• Poor communication

• Low advertised salary


Yet these aren’t the only factors which can influence whether or not a candidate applies for a role. A poor reputation, management and a high staff turnover are also factors which can put off candidates.


This highlights the importance of any organisations recruitment process and how improving this process will ensure a positive company image and successful recruitment of the best candidates.
