Umbrella company contractors may be interested to learn that there has been a report of standout jobs growth across the UK as Christmas approaches.
Findings from CV-Library revealed that job growth has increased by 13.6% year-on-year and 3.2% month-on-month.
According to the latest research, Sheffield and Southampton saw the greatest jobs growth with a 28.5% and 23.1% rise, with manufacturing (37.7%), Automotive (37.3%) and hospitality (26.8%) being the top sectors for increased opportunities.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, commented on the recent findings, “It’s great to see that the nation as a whole has experienced strong job growth in November, and that businesses are remaining confident in the run up to Christmas. It’s a busy time of year, and therefore not entirely surprising that jobs have risen, as organisations look for staff to work over the festive period.
“It’s also apparent that some of the savvier employers are choosing to advertise their vacancies well ahead of the January rush, in a bid to boost their chances against competitors as candidates begin looking for opportunities in the New Year. This abundance of vacancies is great news for eager job hunters, who have plenty of opportunities to tap into when they’re ready to look for a new role.”
