Liverpool has been ranked as the number one city to find a job this spring, with Brighton, Birmingham and Sheffield following close by.
The number of vacancies increased by an impressive 20 per cent on the Mersey, suggesting that business confidence is strong in the North West.
London also ranked in the top ten, with vacancies increasing by 12 per cent in the last month.
The top 10 locations where job numbers are rapidly rising:
- Liverpool (19.9%)
- Brighton (18.8%)
- Birmingham (14.8%)
- Sheffield (13.7%)
- Leeds (13%)
- Manchester (12.8%)
- Bristol (12.5%)
- London (12%)
- Glasgow (11.2%)
- Cardiff (11%)
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “It’s great to see that business confidence is keeping strong in London and the promising rise in job numbers is particularly good news for candidates looking for new opportunities. With spring now upon us, this could be the perfect time to freshen up your career!”
Salaries in London saw a slight dip of 0.2 per cent last month, yet this has clearly not deterred the very active candidate base in the city.
Biggins concludes: “It’s clear that the job market in London is staying strong, and this is particularly important now Brexit negotiations are officially underway. For those looking to take the next step in their career, now could be the right time for finding your next role!”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
