The Jobs Market is Gathering Pace at the Start of 2014!
At the start of 2014, it was expected that Monday 6th January would see the most job applications of the year. However, it was Tuesday 7th that saw people visit job boards in record numbers – demonstrating that people are being very proactive already in their search for a new career. One of the UKs largest online job boards saw over half a million visitors for the first time on Tuesday, resulting in a 64% increase in the number of employers advertising their vacancies in response. The first week of January also saw a 14% increase on the total number of average weekly visitors, reaching almost 2.5million. Another leading job board’s data showed that last year throughout the UK, there became more vacancies available from every industry sector and competition eased as the average number of applicants per vacancy lowered.
This positive start to the New Year shows that now could be the right time to find a new job and Intro Personnel are very keen to speak to people about some of the exciting opportunities we have available. For more information please click here.
