“Secret Santa is Coming to The Office”

This entry was posted in Articles, Working life and tagged , , on by Mar.

How can we bring tradition, togetherness, fun and magic to Christmas time at our daily workplace in the final month of the year? We all know the answer: Secret Santa.  Yes, we all know that playing Secret Santa can be very entertaining, especially when it’s your boss’s idea.

But… Your smile suddenly freezes when you discover the name of the person hidden in your inbox or on a slip of paper with the subject “Secret Santa”. It’s at that moment that a terrible dilemma arises and smashes your enthusiasm for this Christmas game into smithereens. What should I get? What should I get?  And suddenly you remember why you swore to yourself that you wouldn’t take part in it again. So, without realising, you’ve given in to that peer pressure and the good cheer that goes along with Christmas spirit. The game, without a doubt, can be a welcome escape from the daily grind, the reward is that you get to know a colleague better.

Hard-to-Fill Positions Analysis in United Kingdom – October 2017

This entry was posted in Advice for recruiters, Employment trends, JobisJob Data and tagged , , , , on by María Aragón.

This article presents a brief summary of the hard-to-fill positions during October 2017 in the UK. To extract and analyse the data, we have used our big data technology tool Job Market Insights, which provides us with an in-depth picture of the job market trends and the hard-to-fill positions in the jobs market.

About Hard-to-Fill positions. Hard-to-fill positions are vacancies being posted multiple times on paid sites with periods of up to 2 weeks in-between.  These are hot leads, positions that are being paid for by companies and are in desperate need of qualified candidates.

Firstly, we are going to give details of the the hard-to-fill positions from a general point of view at a national level.  We will also show the characteristics of these types of vacancies based on the data from the city or cities that register a representative amount of job offers in each of the regions.

HARD-TO-FILL POSITIONS IN THE UK – GLOBAL VIEW

In October 2017, the total number of hard-to-fill positions (10,884) accounted for 1% of the total vacancies published. In the sections that follow, we are going to provide information from different perspectives, looking at: the most frequently requested job title, salary range, location and issuing company.
If we analyse in terms of the most frequently requested job title, we can see that vacancies from Social Services and Sales sectors come out on top. From a salary perspective, almost 55% of the hard-to-fill positions are in salary ranges of less than £40,000 and around 28% have salaries less than £20,000.  Generally speaking, these are vacancies that are demanding customer service jobs with low salaries.
London is the location with the significant majority of hard-to-fill positions, accounting for 21% in total. We can see that the company ranking is dominated by large companies and organisations from the commodities and Health sectors.

HARD-TO-FILL POSITIONS BY LOCATION

ENGLAND

England maintains the total of 1% of hard-to-fill positions as a proportion of the total number of job offers in the market. The proportion of vacancies by location is similar both in terms of the global distribution of job offers and the distribution of hard-to-fill positions. The main yet subtle difference is in Birmingham, which is the third-placed city in England in terms of its total number of job offers published, but at the bottom of the top 5 in terms of its hard-to-fill positions.
