The Changing Face of UK Recruitment

A market research report uncovering candidate behaviour and its impact on the recruitment industry

AdaptUXAbout This Report

Research undertaken on behalf of Bond International, creators of AdaptUX Recruitment Software, set out to discover the current state of the recruitment market from the candidates’ perspective. 1,000 UK office workers, ranging from non-management roles to C-level Executives, responded to an in-depth survey. The results were very informative and often genuinely surprising.

With significant differences in attitudes between the generations when it comes to work/life balance and career motivation, are candidates getting what they really need from recruitment agencies?  Where do recruiters fit in today’s world of social networking and rising direct to organisation contact? How do they differentiate themselves? What are their new opportunities?

” The world of work is changing. Employers are facing new challenges and are increasingly turning to recruiters to provide specialist expertise and solutions. Bond’s market research report provides thought leadership and insight, giving recruiters deep knowledge of trends, market conditions and candidate motivations.”
