Top Ten Candidate Excuses

As recruiters it’s frustrating to hear if a candidate has not attended an interview, however some excuses we have heard over our 13 years have made us laugh. Here are our top ten worst, best or most unusual candidate excuses we’ve had over to get out of an interview. Some of them we hear time & time again, while others are somewhat less common!


A successful year in recruitment

So recently I posted on Linkedin about the last 12 months of my career in recruitment at Cast UK & found I had so much to write about I thought I’d blog about it as well! So, without further ado, here’s my summary of life in the last 12 months at Cast UK:

Employers – get the most from your recruitment consultant

Whether you’re new to using a recruitment consultant or you've been dealing with them for a long time, have you ever considered whether you’re really making the most of what they have to offer?

Where marketing meets recruiting

As employment levels stand at an all-time high, its more crucial than ever to understand that recruiting the best talent is no longer the simple linear process of years gone by.

In a candidate-driven market, the best talent can take their pick of the best roles, meaning the companies need to work harder than ever to attract new people to their businesses.

Where your business is located is a crucial factor that can dictate the degree of ease, or difficulty your company has in attracting the best talent on the market.
