Most in-house recruiters ‘fairly satisfied’ in jobs, survey says

How happy are in-house recruiters in their current jobs? And how likely are they to seek pastures new over the next year? The findings of a recent survey suggest that many in-house recruiters across the seniority spectrum could be on the move before 2016 kicks in.

Mon, 26 Jan 2015How happy are in-house recruiters in their current jobs? And how likely are they to seek pastures new over the next year? The findings of a recent survey suggest that many in-house recruiters across the seniority spectrum could be on the move before 2016 kicks in.

Most in-house recruiters, or nearly 60%, say they are “fairly satisfied” in their current jobs, but only 31% describe themselves as “very satisfied”, according to the newly released In-house Recruitment Salary and Rewards Survey 2014/2015. Findings from the survey, produced for The Forum for In-house Recruitment Managers (The FIRM), said, showed that about 60% of the 306 respondents overall were fairly satisfied, with just under 10% reporting that they were “not very satisfied” and 2% “not at all satisfied”.

Perhaps reflecting their levels of job satisfaction, 19% and 34% of respondents reported respectively that they were “very likely” or “fairly likely” to change employers within the year, with 13% saying they had no intention of leaving. More male (56%) than female (50%) in-house recruiters planned to leave their current employers within the year, the survey found.

At the same time, only 26% of respondents have been in their current roles for more than three years, and 32.5% have been in place for up to a year. Around 40% have been in their jobs for from one to three years.

Most respondents, or 53%, have UK-only remits with global and EMEA [Europe, Middle East and Africa] remits belonging to 24.5% each.
