In order to attract trained Construction Professionals, employers & recruiters are having to rethink their recruitment advertising and how they can maximise the ROI on their job postings.
For many, they will look to large, generalist job boards in order to reach the widest audience possible.
But in the construction sector, where there is a need to address the lack of skilled workers, it’s often quality rather than quantity of candidates that counts
A specialist job board is the perfect way for engaging with job seekers as they offer targeted social media followings that can promote job adverts.
A recent survey found that candidates applying
81% didn’t visit Jobsite
83% didn’t visit Totaljobs
79% didn’t visit CV-Library
72% didn't visit Monster or Irish Jobs
Why are candidates turning away from these major job boards?
