What Matters to Employees?

What drives individuals to join one organisation over another can vary significantly dependent on the sector. We survey candidates and collate their responses giving you the information you need to tailor your attraction strategy specifically within the Public Sector.

What are the 4 most important factors to Public Sector candidates when considering a new position?



Ability to have an impact/drive change

Flexible Working Hours

Candidate Motivation

With a tough market and the enforcement of IR35 compliance, as well as an expectation to work long hours, daily rate is always going to feature highly.

Public Sector organisations were early adopters of flexible working and candidates value this benefit highly, whilst still expecting to work close to home. Even contractors are less likely to stay away from home in the current climate.

Candidates in this sector want to feel their work has meaning, more so than in other sectors. Their drive to serve their community is often the reason why they seek roles in this field in the first place.

Salary Increase

The dependence on Technology in modern businesses, especially as we begin to enter the world of automation, is driving salaries up and forcing employers to give decent salary increases in order to attract new talent.

Employers will soon realise they must also give good salary increases to existing staff so they don’t lose them, particularly those with rarer IT skill sets.
