Findings from the Recruitment Confidence Index (RCI) show the most commonly used recruitment methods over the past six months were regional newspapers (47 per cent).
The quarterly RCI, developed by Cranfield School of Management and the Daily Telegraph, in association with Personnel Today, shows the second most popular method was employment agencies (46 per cent), followed by internal recruitment (43 per cent), and corporate websites (42 per cent).
The use of each recruitment method has remained relatively stable compared with the previous quarter, and most methods showed a slight increase in usage.
A comprehensive report on the RCI can be found in Recruitment Trends & Forecasts, a quarterly newsletter available on subscription from Personnel Today. Call 020 8652 8803 for enquiries.
