“As the summer months come to an end, the days get shorter and the holidays are over, so settling back into reality can leave us feeling flat and in need of a new challenge. Thankfully, our data tells us that there’s a whole host of opportunities out there right now.

“So, if you’re on the hunt for a new job, now is the perfect time to start looking. Many of the nation’s key industries and cities have a large number of exciting career opportunities available to you– so don’t miss out!”
