As we have touched on before many times, 2023 has been quiet compared to the mania of the last few years and job volumes have been significantly lower. This has led to talent teams within businesses being scaled back and given this is the most critical function for businesses looking to hire, it acts as a good indicator as to business confidence. When businesses increase hiring into internal recruiters, there is confidence in growth, when vacancies drop, this means there will be less hiring.
For increasing numbers of businesses, hybrid work is becoming the norm, where to add to that, we are also witnessing a significant surge in work-from-home (WFH) vacancies across all functions.
In 2019, only 0.44% of permanent vacancies posted on company websites career centres were marked as remote. Compare that to 2023, where remote vacancies have comprised 4.3% of the total so far. Put simply, remote vacancies have never had such a high share of the total before.
