Job Vacancy Figures Show Competition For Jobs Has Risen, And Hull Tops The List For The Worst City To Find Work
Competition for jobs in London has reached a one-year high according to the latest research from job search site Adzuna, and whilst this applies to the whole employment market (rather than our vertical markets of Executive Appointments, IT and Business Change), the research still makes for an interesting read.
For the second year in a row, Hull is the hardest city to find a job in, with 52 people chasing each vacancy.
Sunderland, the Wirral, Wolverhampton and Bradford make up the rest of the top five most difficult places to find work.
It’s also bad news if you live in the capital – competition for jobs in London is intensifying, as there are now 2.4 jobseekers per vacancy, a six-month high.
Jobseekers in Cambridge, Guildford and Aberdeen are having considerably more luck however; in these three cities there are actually more vacancies than candidates.
