Candidates just not up to the job

Firms are being inundated with unsuitable candidates for jobs, making it difficult for them to fill vacancies, according to a report.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) said a survey of over 6 employers found three out of four were having recruitment problems, mainly because of a lack of suitably qualified candidates, fuelled by high levels of unemployment.
