Why Christmas is a great time to recruit (Especially with our special offer)

With the holiday season just around the corner, many businesses feel it’s time to put their recruitment plans on hold. However, there are some good reasons to advertise over the Christmas period and we get to help our members recruit successfully as a consequence each year.

Here are a few reasons to consider:

Job seekers have more time to search – Over the holidays, people have more time to think about their careers, evaluate where they’re going and search for new opportunities. December is actually one of the busiest months for our Jobs Board in terms of views – with over 250,000 unique visitors!

More time to train staff – 
Work traditionally dies down over the holiday period so there may be more time to train staff ready for the more serious workload in the New Year.

Get ahead of the competition –
Finding the best talent can be challenging, especially with so many companies competing. Make sure you take advantage of their downtime by advertising your job now so that it stands out from the crowd.

New staff can get to know the team –
December can prove a great time to help onboard new staff. Why not ask them to join your team’s Christmas party so that they can get to know everyone socially and feel more settled before the real work begins.

To help our wonderful members make the most of their December recruitment, we’ve put together a festive hamper of treats for job posters…
