The Office for National Statistic states that in June to August 2022, the number of unemployed people per vacancy fell to a record low of 0.9. The economic inactivity rate increased by 0.6 percentage points to 21.7% in June to August 2022, compared with the previous quarter (March to May 2022), which had a notably lower economic inactivity rate than other periods. 

Considering that the UK unemployment rate for June to August 2022 was as its lowest in almost 50 years at 3.5%, recruiters must differentiate themselves from the rest to attract top talent. Today the job search is conducted always online, on LinkedIn or other online platforms. Recruiters must involve candidates in the digital field, where they live, they express themselves every day, where they’re looking for jobs.
