If you think December is a quiet time for recruitment, then think again. It’s certainly not slowing down in the Dovetail offices. Despite all of the uncertainties in the job market, with Brexit, a general election and all of these small details, the simple fact is if companies need new staff, they need new staff and most likely they’d like someone sooner rather than later. Life and business goes on, even when Christmas is looming and for many companies it’s their busiest time of year.
Most likely, they could do with extra help to get through the busy period and boost sales, for many organisations, January is the quiet time and where’s the fun in joining a company after all the festive fun.
