The top companies hiring in September 2018

September: finally, a month without any major distractions.

Kids back at school? Check. Big summer holiday out of the way? Check. Unrealistic expectations of national sporting achievements crushed? Check.

So, finally time to concentrate on your career and find a job you love? Let’s face it, you’ve pretty much run out of excuses anyway. And with some of the UKs biggest brands accelerating their recruitment throughout autumn, your new-found productivity could have come at the perfect time.

To help you take the plunge, here are just five of the best companies hiring on right now:



When it comes to careers in the financial sector, it doesn’t get much bigger than Deloitte.

One of the ‘big four’ professional services firms (along with PwC, Ernst & Young and KPMG), they provide auditing, consulting, financial advisory, tax advice and much more – to businesses in 150 countries across the globe.

In fact, it takes 240,000 staff members around the world to ensure they’re the very best at what they do, which means they’re always on the lookout for great people to join the team.

Hundreds of roles are on offer with Deloitte throughout September, including everything from admin and analysis, through to customer service and HR. And if you’re a big fan of tech, they’ve got that covered too.

Aside from having a wide range of tech roles available, Deloitte are also a proud sponsor of this month’s Code First Girls Annual Conference – and are even sponsoring 100 girls to take part in the coding course themselves.

So, whether you think you have a future in finance, or you’re just looking for a company committed to making a difference, find a job with Deloitte today.

Gurus wanted. Apply within.

O2 is the second largest mobile telecommunications provider in the UK, with over 450 of their sleek and stylish stores appearing in high streets up and down the country.

Like Deloitte, they’re pretty switched on when it comes to tech. And they’re looking for likeminded individuals to help take their network to the next level.

It’s not just working with the latest phones all day that you’ll get to look forward to either. Just like their customers, they offer their employees more. More possibilities. More support. More perks.

From a great salary, excellent training and ongoing career development, right through to free tickets to gigs and events, there are many reasons to join O2.

And did we mention you get discounts across all the latest handsets – for you, as well as your friends and family? No?

Pets at Home

For some of us, finding the right role means working with the latest gadgets.

For others, it means working with the latest guinea pigs.

If you fall into the latter group, a job with Pets at Home might be for you. Not only will you get to work with more rabbits than you can shake a stick at, you’ll also get to work for a company voted 5th in the Great Place to Work (Best Large Workplaces) awards 2018.

OK, so it’s mostly about the rabbits.

Jobs on offer include the standard retail roles you might expect, as well as positions in marketing, HR, and even dog grooming.

Want to be around animals all day, get days off for your birthday, and even when you get a new pet? Or just want to get paid to give a cockapoo a coiffure? Join Pets at Home today.

Let’s face it, people are overrated anyway.

Secret Escapes

The first rule of working for Secret Escapes? You don’t talk about working for Secret Escapes…

Ok, that might not be true. But the self-confessed worst-kept secret in luxury travel have built a business on discretion, something which isn’t always easy when you have over 19 million members worldwide.

They’re currently on the lookout for Finance Assistants, Developers, Engineers and Marketing Executives, to fill a number of positions in their London head office.

Previous experience isn’t necessary for every position, so even if you’re just starting out in your career they might have the right role for you. All you need is a positive attitude, excellent interpersonal skills, and great attention to detail. Not to mention an active interest in travel.

Aside from generous discounts on your own holidays, they also have teams everywhere from Berlin and Barcelona, to Stockholm and Prague. And opportunities in these offices are readily available for staff.

So whether you want to move into CRM in the Czech Republic, or start selling holidays in Scandinavia, they’ve got you covered. But remember: competition for the top roles may be particularly fierce.

Southampton FC

OK, so football didn’t end up coming home.

But just because you’ve put the waistcoat back in the wardrobe for another few years, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of football still on offer. And we’re not just talking about the start of the new Premier League season.

Southampton FC are recruiting all throughout September, filling roles in their media, hospitality and catering teams. They also have jobs for youth development coaches, if you’re looking to get more hands-on.

Fans of the Saints are definitely preferred, although this isn’t a prerequisite for the roles. But as free season tickets are just one of the perks of working for the club, an active interest in football is definitely recommended.

Successful applicants will also receive a discounts in the club shop, as well as a dedicated focus on their professional development – helping you progress through the ranks faster than you can say James Ward-Prowse.

Well, if it worked for Sadio Mane/Nathaniel Clyne/Adam Lallana/Insert Name of Current Liverpool Player Here…
