Insights into Retention and Job Satisfaction in the FE Sector

24 February 2023 Client Blogs

Morgan Hunt recently conducted a research project, where we reached out to our network of over 50,000 Further Education and Skills professionals, both hiring organisations and job seekers, to gain insight on staffing struggles and job satisfaction.

The survey covered a wide range of topics, including recruitment and retention, job satisfaction, and the challenges faced by professionals in the industry. The results of the survey provide valuable insights into the state of the job market in the Further Education sector.

Key findings from the survey include:

  • Over 60% of respondents said they were proud to work in the education sector
  • Respondents said job security was the main reason they’re staying in their current job in 2023
  • 25% of hiring managers said lack of applications was the reason for their recruitment challenges
  • Nearly 40% of those who changed jobs in 2022 rated their onboarding process poorly

These findings highlight the need for FE Colleges to adopt a strategic approach to recruitment and retention. Employers need to understand the needs of their staff and provide an attractive package of salary, benefits, and career development opportunities.
