Autumn is the Perfect Time for Job Hunting

The Recruitment Industry Picks Up Speed

During August, many key decision makers are on annual leave and the recruitment industry slows down. In September business hots up again, making it the second busiest time in recruitment after the new year rush in January.


More Jobs Are Available

Due to the recruitment industry picking up speed again at the beginning of autumn, there are more jobs available than during the summer months. Many decision makers come back from annual leave with new goals and plans, leading to a higher demand for candidates they would like to fill in their organisation.
