Job opportunities in the UK increased in September

In an economy that’s been beset by coronavirus restrictions, sickness in the workforce and monumental changes in consumer behaviour, it’s encouraging to see that job opportunities in the UK appear to be bouncing back this autumn.

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) Jobs Recovery Tracker showed that the number of jobs listed in the week of the 14th of September was the highest it has been since the beginning of March 2020. (Remember March? Is it just us, or does that seem like years ago?)

It’s an undoubtedly tricky time, with redundancy looming large in many sectors and some struggling professionals being advised by the government to adapt and retrain for new careers. So, it’s reassuring to see so many new jobs available now, especially in a brave new world of remote working, social distancing and fanatical hand washing.

As many employers continue to actively seek new talent, this is actually a good time for applicants to freshen up their CVs and get the ball rolling on some exciting new applications.

If you’re gearing up for a job search and it’s been a while since you last applied for work, don’t forget that recruitment agencies like us can help you figure out where you’d like to go. We can also help give your application and interview technique a little extra professional polish.
