As the Christmas festivities draw to a close, with only a couple of slices of left-over Turkey in the fridge, and a mere handful of Bounties left in the tub of Celebrations – people begin to look ahead towards the new year.

Whether it’s searching for a new job, joining the gym, or giving up drinking in January – as the new year approaches people start thinking “New year, new me…”.

And the online statistics below are proof that as people start dreading that first day back in work, they start dreaming of the possibilities that a fresh career path could bring.

Trend for job searching surge in the run up to new year:


With job seekers rested and refreshed, and having ample time to search and apply for jobs, it’s no surprise that on average, the amount of job seekers searching for a new career doubles during the post-Christmas period.*

So, can you afford not to plan ahead and miss out to the competition?

Here at JVP we’re ensuring that our clients don't miss out on top talent and are ahead of the game, by scheduling to publish across our extensive job board network and social media on the 27th of December.

This will ensure the adverts are live when the surge of people looking for a new job will reach its annual peak.
