Healthcare job vacancies starting to stabilise

(2 minutes to read)

APSCo: ‘Recruitment across healthcare is highly competitive and highly complex, something that has only been exacerbated since Brexit’.

Latest findings show that healthcare job vacancies have dropped, while application numbers are starting to show positive signs.

The research, from the Association of Professionals Staffing Companies (APSCo) using statistics provided by Broadbean Technology, revealed that vacancies were down by 18% compared to Q4 2021.

Job applications rose by almost the same amount, with applications per vacancy at their highest rate since Q2 2021.

Looking at a regional analysis, Greater London has the greatest number of healthcare vacancies – holding almost triple the number of jobs in the West Midlands, which came second place.

Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo, commented, “While a rise in the number of applications per vacancy in the sector is extremely promising, the healthcare arena has historically had resourcing challenges, so we don’t expect this trend to continue on a long-term basis.”

Swain added, “Recruitment across healthcare is highly competitive and highly complex, something that has only been exacerbated since Brexit.

“What is needed across healthcare hiring is a sector-wide recognition of the best approach to recruitment – one that ensures top candidates are being engaged with and recruited in not only a compliant way, but also in a manner which provides applicants with a high-quality experience. In order to drive this, APSCo has launched a new best practice standard for the clinical and healthcare sector to support quality hiring processes.”
