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.

Update from s1 Sales Director, Gavin Mochan

I’m amazed at how quickly 2015 vanished, it was a very eventful year which saw s1jobs enjoy a stellar period of growth, and the success story continues! I’m delighted to tell you that we have had a fantastic start to the New Year already. In January we saw a record number of 748,371 unique job seekers visit s1jobs, that’s a notable 8% increase on our previous record in January 2013.

We expected the beginning of the New Year to be busy with job seekers as normal, but we’ve been blown away with the high volume of activity. We also continue to receive much more Scottish traffic than any other job board, almost 600,000 visits more than our closest competitor. But the stand out fact for me is, we have more direct employer vacancies in Scotland than any other job board.
