It’s positive news across the Marketing, Creative and Client Services sectors as the increase in available roles continues. According to the BBC, the number of vacancies in the three months to August rose above one million for the first time since records began in 2001. Figures also showed employee numbers were back at pre-Covid levels in August.
The blueskies team are seeing an sustained uplift in new opportunities, and many organisations are planning on further growth over the next 12/18 months. The current climate is still a little uncertain and some people continue to be risk adverse and are holding back from making big life changes, such as careers. This is leading to a shortage of active candidates on the market.
The good news for the active candidates is the restricted availability of experienced talent is providing them with a unique opportunity to secure their dream role. We are seeing an increase in vacancies across all our sectors and in particular we are seeing growth in Social Media roles, Animators, Motion Graphics and Senior Creatives, Digital and Integrated Marketers. Candidates with these skills are being recruited so quickly, just this week we have secured a Social Media Manager who was facing redundancy - a fabulous new role in a fast acting, progressive organisation, the whole process taking less than a week.
