exactly what is a candidate driven market?

The job market is once again favouring candidates - find out what this candidate led market place means for your business and what you can do to streamline your recruitment process.

What is a Candidate Led Market?

A high demand for skilled candidates coupled with a surge in hiring across the country has resulted in an extremely competitive jobs market. It’s typical for experienced candidates to receive multiple offers from industries, so it’s important to ensure that you are staying competitive and offering additions that will make a role more attractive.

What are candidates looking for?

Too often, employers hear the term, “it’s a candidate market”, without necessarily understanding the full impact of this. It is no longer only about the salary and location of the role nowadays but the benefits as a whole. If a candidate is going to make a move, cultural fit and company values will also be at the core of their decision making.
