Don’t put off job hunting until the new year.
There are opportunities to get ahead in the run-up to Christmas and over the festive period. We have learned a few things about the December recruitment market conditions over the 10 years we’ve been trading.
- In December hiring managers tend to have a little more time to prioritise their immediate recruitment headaches. This is because the wider business demands slacken off slightly.
- Many candidates wrongly assume “no one will be looking to hire anyone in the run-up to Christmas” and will wait until January to start looking.
So demand and desire to hire is still high and the competition for the roles is low! Imagine how good your turkey is going to taste in the knowledge that you have a great new job to look forward to starting in the new year!
Going through the recruitment process can sometimes be delayed by the odd Christmas party and hiring managers using up annual leave. However, we are still really busy organising interviews for the 2nd and 3rd week of December and even in between Christmas and NY.
So if you have made the decision, and you will be job hunting over Christmas. Why not, get in touch with us now to find out what opportunities we have on the go. We are also here to help if you need any support with putting your CV together.
