Enhance Media today announced the launch of the NORAS 2011 results. The results form the largest piece of online recruitment research in the world and help identify where to find the most relevant candidates online.
The 2011 NORAS survey includes research taken from 95,000 candidates spread across 62 job boards – the widest sample ever used in the NORAS research.
Key 2011 findings include massive variations in visitor demographics across the job boards, making NORAS even more powerful as a way of identifying where candidates reside online. Data such as the average salary across the job boards varying between £11,409 and £108,415 is used by employers, recruitment consultancies and advertising agencies to identify the ideal job board to advertise on.
The results were also launched today on the NORAS website (www.noras.co.uk). The website provides a free resource giving recruiters access to 4 million answers essential to candidate sourcing questions.
The NORAS website allows free statistical comparison of over 50 online recruitment questions and a new 2011 NORAS interface makes searching easier than ever before.
The NORAS 2011 results are available to download free at www.noras.co.uk. Clients who register free on the NORAS website in the next month will also receive free industry updates through the NORAS newsletter.
