The top companies hiring in December 2017

The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud sharing jobs for all to hear…

OK, so that may not strictly be true. But with more than 10,000 of the UK’s top recruiters advertising roles on reed.co.uk throughout December, it might just be the perfect time to stop putting it off – and give yourself the gift of a brand new start. Let’s face it, it still beats socks.

To prove December can be the most wonderful time of the working year, here are five companies hiring right now:

 

Amazon

You don’t need Alexa to find you a new role this Christmas…

Since starting life in Jeff Bezos’ Washington basement in 1995, Amazon has gone on to become a global phenomenon – not to mention the world’s largest online retailer.

In fact, on a busy day over Christmas they can make anywhere up to three million sales in the UK alone – amounting to a staggering 2,500 customer orders every minute.

So whether you’re looking for a canoe in Catford, a onesie in Wilmslow or a Thundercats DVD in Detroit, Amazon has the perfect product for you. And their jobs aren’t too bad either.

They’re looking for Engineers, Technicians and IT Managers, who have the drive to succeed at the Earth’s most customer-centric company.

In return for your services, you’ll receive a competitive salary, generous performance-related bonuses, and an employee discount which would keep even the hardiest Black Friday hoarder happy.

And yes, Prime discounts are available…

Coca-Cola


Looking for a rewarding new career? There’s always Coca-Cola.

Aside from being the official signifier of the start of the Christmas season for many (especially those without calendars), the world’s number one beverage company are consistently named as one of the best companies to work for globally.

And no, it’s not just for all the free Coke Zero.

They’re looking to fill a number of roles throughout December, with everything from sales and marketing positions right through to apprenticeships in business and engineering up for grabs.

Full training will be provided for all new starters, meaning no previous experience is necessary for certain jobs. You just need the right mindset, and a passion for providing an excellent customer experience. And, you know, a natural aversion to drinks that come in blue packages.

The holidays really are coming.

Clintons


You can’t think of Christmas without thinking of Clintons.

Every year, they’re a beacon of hope for millions of anxious shoppers – selling everything from last-minute cards and gifts through to wrapping paper and reasonably-priced scented candles.

They’re currently searching staff to help man their 400 UK stores, to cover the Christmas rush and beyond. So if you’re interested in becoming a Store Manager, Supervisor or Sales Assistant, and/or you can listen to the hits of Mariah Carey and East 17 on repeat without wincing, apply now.

Oh, and did we mention that you get 40% off of all of their products as soon as you become a member of staff?

Well, that’s Christmas wrapped up.

Lidl


Turkey? Check. Mince pies? Check. A job with one of the UK’s top employers? No? We’ve got this.

Lidl is one of the Britain’s best loved supermarkets, providing top quality products at the lowest possible prices in locations right across the UK.

And it’s not just crafting affordable artisan Christmas products and producing award winning wines that they’re passionate about. They’re also big on delivering excellent training and career progression for their staff.

In fact, nearly all of the company’s senior professionals started their careers in store – meaning you can go up the ladder and into management quicker than you can say Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Jobs on offer throughout December include customer service, warehouse and cleaning roles, as well as positions in accountancy, marketing, HR and construction.

Ready to start? Every Lidl application counts (N.B. double dippers need not apply.)

Make-A-Wish


Unfortunately, the holiday season isn’t a happy time for everyone.

For thousands of children across the UK, December is spent in and out of hospitals, fighting serious medical conditions and undergoing treatments which could help save their lives.

But the Make-A-Wish foundation believe a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope. And that’s why they’re looking for Wishgranters and Support Care Officers to join their team for 2018.

As part of your role, you’ll get to put a smile on the faces of needy kids every single day, helping to organise once in a lifetime experiences – whether it’s walking with dinosaurs, going on amazing holidays, or meeting their celebrity heroes.

In return, you’ll be working in one of the most rewarding jobs you can ever do, and help make a difference to lives across the country.

Because some things aren’t just for Christmas…
