The following fact sheet is a summary of the key research findings from this study of more than 2,500 people who have looked for work in the UK in the last twelve months. It is important to note that the sample is not purely random, it was achieved by RfO member and partner organisations, including a number of key recruitment agencies, sending a link to the survey to the candidates on their contact databases.
