Increase in job seekers expected in September, study shows

The number of people looking for work is expected to increase in September, according to a study by CV-Library.

According to the data, SMEs should expect more interest from candidates, with over 50 per cent of employees being more likely to consider a new job as the end of summer approaches.


According to CV-Library Founder and Managing Director Lee Biggins, September is usually a time when recruitment is busy. He believes the performance of the job market and UK careers will be interesting to see, especially after Brexit.

Biggins said: “Post-summer labour market activity always tends to improve, as more people return from their holidays, and SMEs begin to pick up the pace.” He added that after a 17 per cent increase in job creation during the same period a year ago, a similar increase this year will be witnessed.


Despite uncertainty surrounding the EU referendum, Return on Digital CEO Guy Levine said that his digital marketing agency still has plans for growth when it comes to recruitment.

“While all of this uncertainty is going on we can’t just sit by and do nothing,” he said, adding: “As a business we still have targets and will still need to acquire new customers and employ a team which is capable of delivering on expectations.”
