Market research on candidate response rates to advertising over the Christmas and New Year period shows a low level of candidate responses and a reduction in eligible candidates applying for roles. We have therefore implemented an advertising cut off period to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome from advertising.
Should you choose to advertise roles in December please ensure all advertising cut off dates reflect your ability to respond to candidates in a timely manner, i.e. if you are unable to respond to candidates until the beginning of January we would advise that the cut-off date of your position reflects this date to manage candidate expectations relating to their acknowledgement.
