Blue Book 2021

The blue book is your unique recruitment market tool; the world’s largest and longest running face-to-face employment survey.

Now in its 17th year, this survey is the most comprehensive in the industry, reporting on everything from salaries to benefits, desirable working environments, interview practices, temporary versus permanent roles – as well as comparing attitudes between employers and employees.

We are all living through a time of heightened change against the backdrop of a world rocked by the COVID-19 response. This has only accelerated development in an ever evolving, global recruitment industry.

This year, the blue book will consist of four chapters, produced quarterly. This will allow us all to explore the changing landscape in the employment market in real time and how we can best adapt to take advantage of present economic growth and extra opportunities through the coming year.

The survey interviews recruiters, managing directors and HR managers from an array of organisations including start-ups, major banks, finance, insurance, accountancy and legal firms, large media, marketing and digital companies, HR, property, universities, hospitals, IT providers, charities and luxury brands as well as jobseekers currently active in the marketplace and those still in employed positions.
