TIME IS RIPE FOR EMPLOYERS TO FILL NEW YEAR VACANCIES

BUSINESSES planning to recruit for early 2013 should start searching for candidates now or risk missing out on the top contenders, an online employment company has warned.

Data released today by SEEK shows that from August to October the fastest-growing occupations were health management (up 167 per cent), closely followed by teaching (up 149 per cent), personal injury law (up 117 per cent) and nursing (up 114 per cent).

“Particularly where there is seasonal work it is important, from an advertiser’s perspective, to get in early. People tend to pick up jobs early on and the good candidates get snapped up first,” says SEEK spokesperson Peter Osborne (pictured).

“Employers should openly tell candidates how much the job pays, hours of work, employee support programs, career development opportunities and the availability of parking and public transport.”

On a national scale, the struggling construction industry gained much lost-ground with a 46 per cent jump in building, picking and packing jobs.

“The market has been a bit softer than in recent years. However, the building sector still has pockets of growth, particularly around the mining and resources sector in Queensland,” says Osborne.
