December: The best time to hire

, ,

While companies across New Zealand work to tie up loose ends before the end of the working year, recruitment gets put on the back-burner faster than Michael Bublé in January. Hiring new staff is not a priority for many companies as compared to the new year where we see high competition for our best candidates.


We’ll let you in on a little secret… December is the best month of the year to hire!

Don’t Miss the Opportunity!

We helped more companies find great people in December 2016 than any other month of the year. So don’t put your feet up just yet when you have the opportunity to stay one step ahead!

Here’s why:

  • Large and Unique Talent Pool! You have the opportunity to open a new talent pool of the best candidates. Compared to January last year, we had a 60% increase in job applications in December. A lot of these candidates will be snapped up quickly, as these are talented and active job-seekers who have left their job at the end of the year looking to turn over a new leaf in the new year.
  • No Competition! If you are looking to fill a vacancy, you have a lot less competition from other businesses in your industry. You essentially get the first pick of the best candidates! We had a sharp rise in job applications and the least amount companies looking for candidates in December. Take your pick of our best candidates.
  • Get ahead! Don’t wait until the start of next year when companies are scrambling for talent in their busiest time of the year.
