Why Autumn is the best time for Job Hunting

Summer is fading away, the last bank holiday until Christmas already a distant memory. The evenings are getting darker and it’s probably time to accept that winter is approaching.

Obviously, we at Inspire are totally holding out for an Indian summer.

But, it’s not all dismal, doom and gloom! It’s the perfect time to revamp those CVS, get those LinkedIn profiles up to date and look to the next step in your career. Or even a whole new career path.

Why Autumn?

The recruitment industry is picking up speed.

August sees many key players and decision-makers on annual leave. No ones all ever in the office at the same time. September heats up and it’s the second busiest time in recruitment behind January.

There are more jobs available.

With everyone back and focused it’s the time companies make structural changes. It’s when new goals and plans are made. There’s a much higher demand for new talent to join their organisation ( and fully onboarding before Christmas) See our RECRUITMENT page for our current job listings.

There’s more time for job hunting.

Evenings are drawing in earlier we’re spending more time at home so there’s plenty more time to search for new roles, to muster up eye-catching CV’s and improve our online presence.

If you’re looking for a new challenge or new direction for your career and we can help you at inspire.
