September Recruitment – What the Month of September is like for the Recruitment Industry
How does September differ from other recruitment periods in the year?
For many job seekers, September is a period of refocusing and re-energizing their job search – the holidays are over, the kids are back at school and Christmas is not far away. Distractions are few and the HR teams are all back in the office, speeding up the job application cycle once more.
For seasonal work, this is the switch-over from summer jobs to Christmas vacancies, therefore vacancies for temporary work undergo a significant shift. In education, September is one of the main recruiting months of the year due to the termly nature of notice periods for teaching jobs and the recruitment dead-time of the summer break.
September is certainly not one of the busiest hiring periods of the year for other sectors, but for those looking for permanent jobs this is also a great time to look. The new-graduate market has slowed after the springtime flood and employers are full of the energy that autumn brings.
How can employer s make the most of recruitment in September?
For employers, September is also a good time to grab a bargain, with so many recruitment agencies advertising special offers on their recruitment packages. Additionally, with a revitalized workforce, September is a great time to consider your future recruitment needs and plan for expansion or new projects.
So employers and job seekers, this is the time to grab those early autumn recruitment opportunities and get ahead of the game.
