A role in your company becomes vacant… we need to replace the role… how long is this going to take?

Well, the conventional thinking used to be the higher the salary the longer it is going to take, but in fact this is not necessarily the case.  A more accurate predictor is the amount of candidates available in that particular salary bracket.

At Frontline Recruitment Group we constantly measure this “candidate availability” so that we can advise clients and set realistic expectations regarding how long it will take to fill the role.

Below is our latest data for Frontline Construction showing the average days to fill roles over the last twelve months in the following salary brackets:

  • Up to $50k
  • $50-$70k
  • $70-$100k
  • More than $100k

Note: Here we are measuring the days from the time the job was listed until it was placed. There is a further amount of time before the candidate then starts in the role.
