The latest data fromCV-Library, the UK’s leading independent job board, today reveals that 2015 has seen a significant drop in applications for management jobs, resulting in a growing challenge for UK businesses looking to fill managerial roles.
The job site’s statistics indicate that June 2015 saw the biggest drop in applications for management roles since July 2014, suggesting that candidates are becoming increasingly selective in their job search.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, explains: “Managerial roles are often filled internally in many UK businesses, but recently we’ve seen a growth in the number of management job postings showing that employers are increasingly looking to recruit external talent for these jobs. Unfortunately, those most qualified in managerial roles are being increasingly selective in their job search. This, combined with concerns surrounding skills gaps, means UK businesses have a growing challenge on their hands.”
The good news is CV-Library has over 284,473 job hunters seeking managerial work, meaning there are plenty of candidates available to fill roles.
