Stand out from the crowd to get talent in


According to the latest stats from CV Library, job numbers soared in some of the UK’s key cities last month.

The data analysed the average number of jobs across key UK cities last month, and compared this with statistics from the same period last year. The nation as a whole witnessed an impressive increase in advertised vacancies of 10.7 per cent year-on-year, with the findings revealing that the top ten cities for job growth include:

Bristol – 45.3 per cent
Sheffield – 42.5 per cent
Glasgow – 37.8 per cent
Leeds – 34.4 per cent
Manchester – 33.2 per cent
Cardiff – 30.3 per cent
Southampton – 28.6 per cent
Birmingham – 27.3 per cent
Edinburgh – 27.1 per cent
Liverpool – 19.2 per cent

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments, ‘With so many key cities experiencing job growth, businesses will have to fight hard to stand out from their competitors and attract the most talented candidates to their business.  While August is typically a quieter month for applications, it’s clear from our findings that candidate appetite is showing no signs of slowing down, which is positive news for UK businesses. We expect to see these numbers continue to grow throughout September which means that now is the perfect time to be looking for your next hire’
