A record month for s1jobs, despite a fall in unemployment

Quarterly figures released by the Office for National Statistics last week showed that unemployment in Scotland fell by 1,000 to 112,000.

The increase in Scottish employment rates however is not reflective of the number of Scots who are on the lookout for a new role. In the same month that s1jobs celebrated its 17th birthday, records were broken – with 1 million visitors recorded in January.

Over 63,000 bold and brave Scots visited the site in just one day as they looked to further their career. With over 20,000 Scottish vacancies in January across 36 different sectors, with growth in vacancies in Accountancy, Financial Services, Marketing, Production and Retail.  s1jobs continues to attract the masses, with jobseekers able to find many quality mid-levels roles as well as entry level and part-time vacancies with many large national employers.
