What channels do industrial & manufacturing use for sourcing candidates?

Recruiters in the Industrial & Manufacturing sector rely on Professional Social Networks for finding candidates for their open positions. Employee Referrals are the second most used channel, followed by Careers Sires (87%). 

The sector continues to experience a shortfall in new entrants to the workplace and is affected by candidate scarcity - further impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. That's why an Applicant Tracking System and Recruitment CRM, designed to help you recruit talent quickly and efficiently while building talent pools is vital to your hiring success.

Also worthy of a mention is how CV Databases and Job Aggregators are providing a good balance of quality and quantity of candidates.

Recruitment Agencies working in the sector see improved quality and quantity of candidates from last year, but come at a cost to the business
