The poster displays key statistics, context around why the trends are important, signposts to available NHS Employers support and encourages employers to consider how they can begin to plan their recruitment for 2021.

2020 changed the ways many organisations recruit. The COVID-19 pandemic forced a necessary move to remote working which in turn caused an increase in remote recruitment and the NHS People Plan was published, sharpening the focus on inclusive recruitment.

Our recruitment trends poster explores seven expected trends in recruitment in 2021. It considers lessons learnt in 2020, the impact of COVID-19 and its lasting effect on the economy and how new technology can make recruitment processes more efficient.
