Article menu

We wanted to understand exactly what encourages and stops candidates from completing an application. So, we’ve run a large-scale candidate survey to get some feedback from the many candidates who are looking for a more meaningful career in the charity sector. You can take a look at the results by downloading a copy of our whitepaper!

Take a look, and let us know what you think about the results. In our whitepaper, you can find out what turns candidates off applications and what pushes them to complete one. So make sure your up to date to with what candidates except, and more importantly take this into account next time you post a job.

Here’s a taster of what you can find…

Did you know?

  • 76% of candidates say they search for jobs based first on the cause the organisation supports.
  • 53% of candidates stop if the application process is too long.
  • 69% of candidates reported that a low salary would stop them from completing a job application.

In the whitepaper, you can find out all the things candidates consider a barrier and take action to make sure that your application process is as smooth and accessible as possible. Not to mention, we have a few hints and tips at the end to help. By reading it, you can find a number of strategies to increase the number of applications your job gets.
