Christmas promises to be a season of opportunity for job seekers, with more than 26,000 temporary roles currently on offer, according to new research.
According to job site Adzuna there were twice as many festive positions being advertised as last year, with companies still looking for seasonal staff including supermarkets, delivery firms and shops.
Adzuna said temporary staff could benefit from the rising trend for cash bonuses.
“Christmas 2021 promises to be a season of opportunity for jobseekers, with a huge array of temporary roles still open and enticing financial rewards on offer,” Adzuna co-founder Andrew Hunter said,
“It’s a great opportunity for jobseekers to add some extra pounds to their bank balances, as well as to their waistlines.
“For students, those who have recently come off furlough, or those simply looking for a ‘stop gap job’ before a career change, these openings will help relieve some of the financial pressures that can come with the festive season.”
The news comes as supermarkets announced a raft of job recruits in time for the festive experience.
