Need a new job this autumn?
With the UK jobs market showing some slow signs of recovery this month, opportunities are starting to rise in many key sectors. In fact, there are over 120,000 roles on reed.co.uk right now. So, whether you or someone you know needs a new start this September, you’ve come to the right place.
To help kick-start your search, here are just five great companies hiring right now:
Need a break from the typical 9-to-5? Try Center Parcs.
The UK’s number one short break destination is officially back – and working hard to ensure their villages are safe for families to enjoy doing the things they’ve missed the most throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
They currently operate across five separate holiday ‘Villages’ in the UK (Sherwood Forest, Elveden, Longleat, Whinfell and Woburn). Each one of them is situated on over 400 acres of beautiful forest land. And, for their staff, offices don’t get much better than that.
They’re looking for passionate people to join the team over the next few months, with positions for everything from Baristas, Bar Staff and Chefs, right through to Cleaners, Spa Assistants and Cycling Advisors, up for grabs.
There are also a wide range of Head Office roles, for anyone more into tech. Not to mention jobs for Santa and his Elves. No, really.
Aside for a generous salary, benefits of working for Center Parcs include discounted breaks, visitor passes, and free use of the on-site facilities (such as the swimming pool, and gym). Simply submit your CV now to apply.
Locations: Throughout the UK.
One of the sectors seeing the biggest boom since lockdown has been the property industry.
In fact, with Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s recent announcement of the temporary removal of stamp duty, it seems more people are on the lookout for a new home than ever. Which, in turn, means more Estate Agents are needed to help cope with demand.
That’s where you (and Countrywide) come in.
Countrywide are the UK’s largest property services group, with an unparalleled coverage of the UK property market. They’re hiring right now, with available roles including Letting Negotiators, Branch Managers, Viewing Agents, Valuers and more.
Previous experience is desirable, but not essential for most positions. What they really put precedence on is personality – with those who can adopt a confident and professional approach, with a keen eye for detail, particularly in-demand.
Lots of conveniently located options are available, close to local travel links. There’s also huge potential for anyone looking to invest in themselves (and/or use more property-based jargon).
Viewing highly recommended.
Locations: Countrywide (did you see what we did there?)
The Education Network
It’s official: the kids have (mostly) gone back to school.
When you’ve finished celebrating, take a moment to recognise the incredible work Teachers do on a daily basis. Something which has taken on a new level of appreciation over the lockdown period.
With a whole host of guidelines in place over the next few months to keep our children safe, great teaching staff are required now more than ever. And The Education Network are here to help the cause.
They’re specialists in recruitment for schools, with their dedicated consultants constantly on the lookout for Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Nursery Workers, Support Staff, SEN Teacher, and more.
Their services are predominantly on offer in the north of England – so whether you’re a newly qualified Teacher looking for work in Newcastle, a Substitute Teacher in Solihull, or a Learning Assistant in Loughborough, they’ve got you covered.
Locations: The north of England.
It’s not just schools that have reopened. Pubs and hotels are finally getting back to a sense of normality too – albeit with some restrictions in place.
Buoyed by the government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme, restaurant spending increased by as much as a third last month. And whilst the hospitality industry is showing some signs of recovery, a lot more needs to be done to help keep the momentum going.
Whitbread, the UK’s largest hotel and restaurant operator, want to be at the forefront of this recovery.
The group, which includes the likes of Premier Inn, Beefeater and Brewers Fayre as part of their portfolio, employ almost 35,000 staff across the country. They’re now a FTSE 100 company, who even had a royal endorsement from the Prince of Wales as part of their reaction to coronavirus.
They’re hiring for staff right in a number of different disciplines, with practically every hospitality role imaginable on offer. There are also opportunities for those working in tech, marketing and HR, as well as apprenticeships for school leavers.
Locations: Throughout the UK.
