The top companies hiring in August 2017

Desperate to get away this month? It’s not you, it’s your job…

We’re not saying that you aren’t entitled to a break in August. But if the main reason you’re frantically searching for flights and stockpiling sun cream is because you aren’t happy in your current position, it’s definitely time for a change. #SeamlessSegway.

To help you find a job that doesn’t make your Mondays miserable, here are five of the top companies hiring on in August:



Looking for an A1 career? Want a job you really R8? Just need to put your abundance of witty car puns to good use?

Audi is one of the world’s leading automotive brands, manufacturing sophisticated and innovative cars for more than a hundred years.

Their success is built on their core values of creativity, commitment and enthusiasm – and a large part of that comes down to keeping their customers’ desires at the heart of everything they do.

They’re currently recruiting for Sales Advisors, Customer Care Managers and Technicians, to work in locations across the country. Think you’ve got what it takes?

If cars aren’t really your thing, why not use August to add to your wardrobe?

Founded in 1856, Burberry is the quintessential luxury British brand – offering everything from premium clothing and fashion accessories right through to sunglasses, fragrances and cosmetics.

They’re also pretty big on tartan.

This month they want to add significant numbers to their teams in accountancy and finance, as well as customer service and HR.

Aside from an excellent taste in trench coats, successful applicants will be expected to fully embrace the ‘brand first’ mentality – understanding the great heritage that comes with working for Burberry, and using your ingenuity to help move the business forward.

N.B. this may or may not include buying an abundance of discounted Burberry products…

Caffé Nero

For some of us, coffee is more than an early morning pick-me-up – it’s practically an art form.

Caffé Nero happen to share that same philosophy, and have been crafting premium Italian coffee (not to mention making people’s mornings more productive) ever since 1997.

They know that there are no shortcuts when it comes to sourcing great coffee. And just like pouring the perfect espresso, finding the right staff is something that can never be rushed.

They’re looking for Baristas, Shift Leaders and Store Managers to join the Caffé Nero family all throughout August. And many positions don’t even require previous experience in the industry to get started.

All you need is the perfect blend of customer service skills, enthusiasm, passion and positivity. Also, you may actually need to know what a macchiato is.

Tea drinkers need not apply…

The world’s local bank are hiring right now. And if you live in Thame, Oxford, Birmingham or Banbury, they’re even hiring locally to you.

That’s right. The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (thanks abbreviations), want to add to their numbers all across the country, and are recruiting Cashiers and Customer Service Staff to join their ranks throughout the summer.

As you might expect, working for a globally recognised and respected brand has its perks.

In return for your service, you’ll get a competitive salary and a discretionary annual bonus, as well as other perks ranging from private healthcare for you and your family, through to a market-leading employer pension contribution and even life insurance.

You’ll also get excellent rates on everything from credit cards to loans and mortgages. You know, if you like that kind of thing.

Your chequebook may never look the same again…

Got the Munchies? We might have found your perfect position…

Ok, so we can’t promise you a position as a professional chocolate taster just yet. But we do have a range of excellent opportunities on offer with the Swiss food and drink giants – covering everything from marketing and media through to engineering.

There’s even a vacancy for something called a ‘Culinary Specialist’. Which, at the very least, should probably see at least a few extra Smarties thrown your way.

Other than the obvious perks (e.g. salary, bonuses, Kit Kats, Milky Bars), you’ll get all the benefits that come with working for one of the world’s biggest brands – including access to their award-winning training and development programmes, and excellent promotion opportunities as standard.

Also, possibly the best employee vending machines the world has ever seen. Because, you know, chocolate…
