The Jobtrain ATS platform processes hundreds of thousands of vacancies and many tens of millions of applications per annum. It's this that has provided our Talent Intelligence Unit access to a huge amount of data. We combine 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.
Our second edition market report utilises a sample of 28,000 vacancies and 10,000 candidates surveyed across 18 industry sectors. We repeat and publish these reports every 6 months, with each edition further benefiting from the ability to provide comparisons and trends from the edition prior.
