Welcome to Across-the-Board

There’s no easing back into work following the Christmas break for recruiters, as Britain posted the world’s fourth-biggest spike in the number of UK January jobseekers.

Data from Indeed reveals that the number of jobseekers increased by 63.6%, compared with the same period in 2016 - following closely behind were the Netherlands (63.7%), Ireland (66.6%) and France (71.8%). 

The professions that sparked the most interest among job-seeking Britons, included: job coach roles, which garnered a spike of 249% in searches, followed by tech roles such as smart metering,
DevOps and Cybersecurity, up 144%, 130% and 111% respectively.  

Perhaps inspired by TV drama, The Night Manager, candidates also displayed heightened interest in hotel operations manager jobs, which saw a 126% increase. 

Hoping to cash in on their Irish charm, Ireland saw a 243% increase in the number of people looking for modelling work, whilst Germany saw a whopping 900% increase in searches for English translator jobs.

Commenting on the surge, Bill Richards, UK Managing Director at Indeed, says: “’New year, new job’ is a global refrain, and January is a perennially busy month for us as people around the world seek to ring the changes and move their career on.

“But this January’s surge in jobseeking in the UK has been exceptionally strong, with Britain’s spike in job searches more than double the size of Japan’s.

“Savvy employers know to capitalise on the New Year rush, and that job ads posted in January will often be seen by a bigger than usual pool of talent.

“Britain enjoys very high levels of employment, meaning the labour market in many sectors is tight. For recruiters, advertising a job in January isn’t just a smart tactic, it’s smart business.”

Research from CV-Library echoes Indeed’s findings, as they found that candidate applications were up 55% in January, when comparing job market data from January 2017 with December 2016. The industries that witnessed an increase in application rates included recruitment (67.3%), manufacturing (71.8%), construction (63.8%) and automotive (60.9%).

In addition, Britain saw significant job growth in January, with jobs increasing by 38% month-on-month and 5.1% year-on-year.
