I’ve been working in recruitment for nearly six years and in that time, I’ve seen that there are job seeker and hiring trends; the summers are quiet, late autumn is busy, December is party season.

From conversations I have been having over the past fortnight, businesses are gearing up for the month ahead, with September traditionally being a busy time for recruitment and the automotive industry. With recent graduates entering the working world and September blues setting in as professionals return from their holidays, I often see an increase in those looking for their next exciting career opportunity.

It’s positive to see that our automotive clients were not subject to the usual summer slowdown in candidate appetite, with both job applications and new vacancies increasing across the automotive team here over the last few weeks.

Feeling stuck in your career and wondering what to do next? Beat the September rush and come and speak to myself or a member of the automotive team.
