“With the uncertainty of the pandemic, many employees were holding fast until the situation was a little more secure.

“For those thinking for taking the leap, there couldn’t be a better time to look for a new role. Companies have been hiring to back-fill roles and take advantage of the economic rebound, which left 1.2 million vacancies across the UK without the candidates to fill them. As a result, the best talent will be able to command healthy salary packages from potential employers.”
