Lee Biggins, Founder and Managing Director of CV-Library, commented on the findings of the report: “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.”
