DESPITE financial concern, it’s been revealed the casual employment industry in the UK reported a 24% rise in job applications in September, due to an influx of under 25’s heading into cities. In the wake of a no deal Brexit, under 25’s are looking for flexible job opportunities, and the UK is exploding with more people than ever hiring and hunting.
JOB TODAY has recorded a massive 45% of those who signed up to the app this September were aged 18-24. Proving that girls do indeed run the world, the analysis carried out by the UK’s number one hiring app also found that females were 52% more active than male students when it came to applying for roles in the lead up to freshers’ week.
For September, not only were the number of applications up, but so were the number of jobs published. From waiting roles in restaurants and bars to Saturday jobs in salons, the app noted a rise of 14% from job posters in just one month.
Under 25’s favourite roles
- Barista +24%
- Waiter & Waitress +24%
- Kitchen Staff +18%
- Cleaning +17%
The research also highlighted a trend that under 25’s are keen to adopt skills that will help them survive moving to the city. With kitchen staff jobs third most popular on the list, long gone are the days of beans on toast and with cleaning jobs a close fourth, they can learn how to do their own laundry.
More specifically, under 25’s are keen to land a role in the city of London. Over 700 of them have applied for an office role in Shoreditch and Angel this month, nearly 500 for a Gucci pop up on Oxford Street and 400 for Mango on the same prestigious London road.
Commenting on the new research, Polina Montano, co-founder at JOB TODAY said:
“There is a lot of concern about the job market in the midst of Brexit negotiations, but we’re actually seeing that at this crucial time people have a an abundance of jobs to apply to, and are taking advantage applying for more jobs than ever.
London is such a great city for the under 25’s; it’s a leader in flexible working and job variety which means it will always be a hub for job progression and stability. Our app perfectly meets the demands of the future workforce in being mobile first, so it’s easy to do on the move too.”
