Top companies hiring December 2018

Oh tidings of comfort and joy Christmas jobs…

With over 280,000 jobs live on reed.co.uk right now, a brand new career might be the best gift you could receive this Christmas (you know, in addition to an excessive amount of turkey). Even if presents aren’t your thing, at least it’ll help you live up to your ‘new year, new year’ mantra a month ahead of time.

To help motivate you this month, here are five of the top companies hiring in December:

 

Aldi

Anyone looking for an affordable Christmas dinner (complete with a lovable anthropomorphic carrot), need go no further than Aldi.

They’re one of the country’s fastest growing supermarket chains, with 750 stores and over 3,000 employees across the UK and Ireland alone. Just one reason they were crowned Grocer of the Year in 2018.

But it’s not just high quality food, drinks, and things you didn’t know you needed (cue: cheapest inflatable hot tub ever circa summer 2018) that Aldi provides. It also delivers excellent careers, whether you’re looking to work in admin, logistics, marketing, retail, or a number of other fields.

What’s more, they boast the highest pay and benefits in the sector, with great training schemes, personal development programmes, along with a variety of other perks.

Just make sure you’re armed to deal with last-minute Christmas shoppers who will do anything to get the last ‘good sized’ turkey. You have been warned…

Amazon

When it comes to last minute Christmas gifts, where would we be without Amazon?

As the largest internet retailer in the world, the online marketplace is our go-to for, well, pretty much everything.

So whether you’re looking for a woolly hat for that aunt who’s always cold, the latest video game for that ‘cool’ nephew, or some noise proof headphones to help you avoid the in-laws at all costs, they’ve got you covered.

But novelty gifts and Prime memberships aren’t the only things that the tech giant is offering this December; they’re also looking for talented individuals to join their team of half a million workers worldwide.

And with roles in automation and maintenance engineering, IT, HR, customer service, and more, there’ll be something to suit you. Also, you know, employee discounts.

What’s not to like?

ASOS

If you spend most days repeatedly adding to your ASOS shopping basket, this is the company for you.

With an aim to empower 20-somethings to look, feel, and be their best (through clothes, and shoes, and hats, and scarves, and…well, you get the idea) ASOS are passionate about enforcing creative, authentic, and contemporary values in everything they do.

This December, they’re on the lookout for Customer Service Advisors across the UK, to help them to give their customers the best shopping experience possible – no matter how late they decide to leave their Christmas shopping.

So if you’re totally immersed in the creative worlds (and/or fashion) and passionate about customer service, now’s the time to join ASOS’s team of over 2,000 innovative employees.

Let’s face it, a new career = a great way to pay off your Black Friday debt (#RIPbankaccount).

Location: Across the UK.

Clintons

Scented candles? Stationery? Soft toys? Cards for all occasions, for every kind of friend, family member, and acquaintance? Clintons has it all.

With 400 stores all over the UK, Clintons is a leading retailer of everything gift related – whether it’s greeting cards, presents, or wrapping paper. And you know what that means? December their busiest time of the year, with their current recruitment drive focusing on hiring seasonal staff, alongside Supervisors, Managers, and more.

So if you’re passionate about customer service, maximising sales, and helping people find the perfect gift (or you just need some help putting your feelings into words cards), Clintons could be a great place to do it.

At the very least, they’ll give you hundreds of ways to say Merry Christmas…at almost half the price.

Because nothing says ‘season’s greetings’ quite like a scented candle smelling of ‘Frosty Pine Needle Sap’.

Location: Across the UK.

Royal Mail

It wouldn’t be Christmas without Royal Mail.

Not only are they responsible for making sure Christmas lovers worldwide receive cards, gifts, and novelty socks in time for the big day – they also deliver over 1.8 billion parcels and 14 billion letters throughout the year.

And with almost 160,000 employees dedicated to picking, packing, posting, and delivering post direct to your doorstep and under your tree, Santa certainly shouldn’t be taking all of the credit.

But that’s not all they do. Royal Mail also celebrate diversity, equality, and all-inclusive recruitment, making it into The Times Top 50 Employers for Women four years running; and working hard to ensure people from all backgrounds and walks of life are able to develop their careers.

Want to become the glue that connects companies, customers and communities across the country? This year, you can.

They’re primarily hiring for Postmen and Postwomen, but also have vacancies in everything from mail sorting and cleaning to management and engineering.

Your new career: delivered.
