As the market recovers and unemployment moves closer to 1 million since lockdown it is important that if you are offered a job to remember these are not normal times and flexibility is the key at this moment in time.

Those who are not aware of this and want to wait for a job may be waiting a while, please be aware of this, it’s “needs must” just now I am afraid.

In many ways it will be the first past the post scenario, this is absolutely in harmony with the temp market, jobs will be filled quicker than they were before due to demand and number of the available job applicants.

Stats tell us that the increase of job applications has grown by over 1000-1500 % at least, you are battling with a multiple of at least 10-15 times the number of job applicants for the job you applied for!! You are literally amongst a sea of other applicants and it is not normal.

I was speaking with a recruitment supply chain company lately who said that they had experienced a 15% growth on contact each week the last 4 weeks across all sectors, whilst that is good news the competition is greater.

Other factors to consider is that if you have a perm job, it’s a privilege just now, hang on to it tightly!!!

Pay rises may not be on the table for quite some time too, so get planning and watch your spending folks.

I believe we will get through this with foresight planning and decision making.
