One in Three Candidates Described as ‘Less Than Ideal’

Recent research by online recruitment marketplace, Hiring Hub, has found that 91% of UK businesses are compromising on candidate quality when hiring, with one in three candidates described as “less than ideal” for the role.

Poor recruitment is a costly mistake for business owners, but Hiring Hub’s research suggests this happens almost as a matter of routine, having a dramatic impact on business growth, productivity, and the UK economy as a whole.

With approximately 700,000 jobs waiting to be filled in the UK at present, an average of six candidates interviewed for a role, each for an hour, this equates to 4.2 million hours spent interviewing candidates.  But that’s just half the story.
