The top companies hiring in January 2017

So, it’s finally 2017…

It’s fair to say that, as years go, the last one was not one of our finest. When we weren’t busy losing pop music icons and national treasures, Prime Ministers were resigning, and reality TV stars were becoming Presidents. Although, in fairness to the latter, it did at least prove that very little experience isn’t necessarily a hindrance when it comes to finding a good job…

To help you make this year memorable for all the right reasons, here are five companies you could be working for in the first month of 2017:




Three words: Heavily. Discounted. Clothes.

That’s right. Even if you’ve decided you need to seriously cut down on your shopping bills this year, finding a job with Britain’s largest online independent fashion retailer could be your key to unlocking a whole new wardrobe – for a fraction of the price.

ASOS* offer over 60,000 branded and own label products on their site, meaning whether it’s jeans, t-shirts, shoes, chokers, catsuits, playsuits or day suits you’re after, they’ve got you covered.

They’re looking to fill a range of roles in January, with everything from Care Advisor and Content Editor positions, through to Team Leader and Analyst jobs up for grabs.

So, if you want excellent progression opportunities and you’re ready for the ultimate career makeover (and/or a lot of new clothes), ASOS could be your perfect fit.

Remember: New year, new you (and various other January clichés).

YO! Sushi


New year, new YO!?

Since opening their screen-doors in 1997, the Japanese cuisine gurus have completely revolutionised the way we eat sushi in the UK.

And when they weren’t too busy building conveyor belts in Crawley and teaching people in Penzance the proper way to hold chopsticks, YO! Sushi went global. Their restaurants now operate everywhere from Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, right through to Russia and outlets in the US.

They’re looking for Chefs and Restaurant Managers to spread their love of sushi to the masses. Successful applicants may be those most comfortable with a maki in their hand, although full training will be provided, meaning previous experience is far from necessary.

Think you’re Unagi enough? Apply for a job with YO! Sushi today.

ZSL London Zoo


Calling all animal lovers: your zoo needs you.

Opening its gates in April 1828, ZSL isn’t only the UK’s most famous Zoo, it’s also one of the world’s oldest.

Today, it houses over 800 separate species of animals (and almost 20,000 humans) on its 36 acre Regent’s Park site. Not including their conservation efforts in countries across the world.

Unfortunately, they aren’t currently in need of a new head Zookeeper (sorry, Mr.Benn), but they do need new Horticulturalists, Grounds Operatives, Receptionists and Seasonal Presenters. There are even a few vacancies for Subject Matter Experts which, at the very least, will allow you to put your Planet Earth addiction to good use.

Want to unleash your inner Attenborough? Apply now.

Let’s face it, people are overrated anyway…
