Umbrella company contractors might be interested to learn that a recent report has revealed the top 10 job locations across the UK.

Latest findings from CV-Library have shown that job opportunities increased a considerable amount last month, by 14.1%. These recent results perhaps suggest that business confidence remains high up and down the country.

Here are the top 10 locations where vacancies are on the increase:

  • Liverpool (19.9%)
  • Brighton (18.8%)
  • Birmingham (14.8%)
  • Sheffield (13.7%)
  • Leeds (13%)
  • Manchester (12.8%)
  • Bristol  (12.5%)
  • London  (12%)
  • Glasgow (11.2%)
  • Cardiff (11%)

The key areas found to report strong growth includes:

  • Charity (35.4%)
  • Catering (31.8%)
  • Hospitality (31.4%)
  • Automotive (20.9%)
  • Education (19.9%)

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, commented on these latest findings, “It’s great to see that business confidence is keeping strong, especially in some of the UK’s key cities such as Liverpool, Brighton and Birmingham. Furthermore, the promising rise in job numbers is particularly good news for candidates looking for new opportunities.

“However, applications are not keeping pace with vacancies, and while it’s still positive to see that candidates are remaining active, we hope this number will pick back up in the months to come.”

With many cities and industries experiencing positive growth last month, it’s clear that the job market is staying strong, and this is particularly important now Brexit negotiations are officially underway.”
