Recruitment statistics for 2022

Our specialist Talent Intelligence unit releases a market report bi-annually. Our experts have developed 20 pages of analysis and insights which we hope you'll find useful in your 2022 strategic planning!


The Jobtrain platform processes many tens of millions of applications per annum, and that has provided our Talent Intelligence Unit access to a huge amount of data. We combine this with external research and our candidate survey data Candidata ™ to form our JobBrain ™data engine.

This delivers insights across the market and in specific sectors for recruitment activity and candidate behaviour, at both macro and micro levels, to help with benchmarking and learning insights to our clients.

How was the report undertaken?

This report encompasses 26,000 vacancies across 18 industry sectors, and over 7,000 candidates surveyed. It will be repeated and published every 6 months with future editions benefiting from the ability to provide comparisons and trends from the edition prior.

2021 marked the second of two unprecedented years of economic and social distress as a result of the global pandemic, which has likely provided some quite different insights than if we provided such a report two or three years ago.JobBrain EDI (3)
