Applications are up, and this figure will inevitably rise this month as candidates embark on a fresh start in their careers.”

“Liverpool, London and Edinburgh are some of the UK’s largest cities so it’s fantastic that there are some great job opportunities for candidates this New Year. Furthermore, it’s clear that job growth was witnessed across the south, north and Wales, which is a positive indication that business confidence is strong across the nation,” added Mr Biggins.
