It's a candidate's market - so your job description needs to meet their demands. Most candidates spend a matter of seconds to decide whether they want to apply or not. It’s important to make your job adverts accessible and attractive.
Candidates don’t have the time to read a novel, especially when they’re applying on the go from a mobile device! If you want to attract a wider pool of diverse talent, or applicants that your organisation may not usually attract, you need to adapt to the market trends and know what is important to applicants right now. What worked two years ago, isn't necessarily working now.
Did you know most candidates only spend 14 seconds reading a job advert and deciding whether to apply? If it's too long or they don't see the keywords they're looking for, they'll quickly move on.
Yes, inclusive language tools are helpful, but if your job description is seven pages long for a £30k role, applicants are simply not reading it. It pays to make it more concise. We look at job descriptions from the eyes of a diverse candidate and make recommendations accordingly.
