Top companies hiring July 2019

Summer, summer, summertime (and other, more contemporary references)…

Ok, so it might seem like finding a new job is the last thing you should be thinking about this summer. But with some of the UK’s biggest brands searching for staff right now, and half of the UK firmly out-of-office, July could be the perfect time to kick-off your career search. In fact, 10,000 new roles are added to reed.co.uk every single day.

Let’s face it, what else are you going to do when Love Island finishes?

To give you an idea of some of the roles that are out there, here are five of the best companies you could find work with this July:

 

Clarks


They say to truly understand a person, you need to walk a mile in their shoes.

We don’t know if that’s true. But what we do know is, if they bought their shoes from Clarks, they would at least be comfortable and odour-resistant.

The company, which started life way back in 1825, has built up a reputation for delivering distinctively fashionable and affordable shoes on high streets right across the UK.

Fun fact: they also invented the Desert Boot, which was based on the unlined suede shoes produced in the bazaars of Cairo and worn by British officers in the Second World War. Which, at the very least, will give you a decent anecdote the next time you need something to pair with chinos.

They’re recruiting for a wide range of roles throughout July, including everything from Finance Administrators and Analysts, right through to Supervisors and Team Leaders.

As well as a competitive salary, successful applicants will enjoy a range of other benefits, with employee discounts, a great pension scheme and development opportunities all on offer.

Clarks: shoes careers with support.

Hermes


Hermes is the UK’s leading consumer delivery specialist, handling over 260 million parcels each and every year.

Not only do they provide a range of flexible and affordable delivery options to fit within people’s increasingly busy lifestyles, they’re also paving the way when it comes to flexible employment.

Within the UK, Hermes operates a network of over 16,000 self-employed couriers, allowing their staff to deliver parcels in their local area, work to their own schedule and enjoy a great work-life balance.

And all of that comes with absolutely no start-up costs. Hermes will provide all the required training and equipment up front, from day one – allowing you to concentrate on the job at hand.

AKA delivering parcels. Lots and lots of parcels.

Side note: as well as being the messenger of the God’s in Greek mythology, the eponymous Hermes was also god of roads, travellers, trade, and trickery.

We can’t guarantee that it’ll help you get the job. But it can’t hurt to cover all bases.

Lidl


Looking for a fresh start? Every Lidl helps.

With over 700 stores, 13 regional warehouses and over 20,000 employees in the UK alone, it’s clear that the German supermarket giant doesn’t like to stand still.

Continually challenging and changing the world of retail as they grow, they aim to make their stores, goods and shopping experience better than ever for every one of their customers.

And that responsibility is shared by every single member of staff they employ.

They’re looking for ambitious, motivated, talented individuals who are ready to join a dynamic, engaging environment to make the very most of their potential.

So whether you want to work as a Warehouse Worker in Wolverhampton, a Shift Manager in Stoke-on-Trent, or in the HR team in their Wimbledon-based Head Office, the right opportunity for you is out there.

N.B. Luckily, they also have lots of roles which involve no alliteration whatsoever.
