A record number of Health Care job vacancies were advertised in April according to recruitment software provider, Recruitive.

With a near record of 751,000 vacancies reportedly on the UK job market, it comes as no surprise that the number of jobs advertised via Jobmate, Recruitive’s multi-posting software, stood 2.25% higher than the previous record held in January 2016.

A number of industry sectors including Catering, Charity, and Leisure, all experienced a record number of vacancies advertised via Jobmate, with Health Care seeing the biggest increase of all; 88% on the previous record also held in January.

Sarah Dickens, Marketing Manager at Recruitive comments: “With the current high level of vacancies and with 31.4 million people now in work, recruiters need to think carefully about their talent acquisition methods and application processes.  Their ideal candidate is likely to already be working and not necessarily actively looking for another job opportunity.  If they do some across a vacancy that they are potentially interested in, they are likely to be put off applying by lengthy application forms and additional tests.”
