New data reveals the most competitive industries

Recent findings have revealed the top five most competitive industries that tend to receive the most applications on average.

Research from HR-Tech platform TribePad has revealed the number of competitive industries based on six million job adverts. This research shows that there is a high demand for highly skilled vacancies. Through these industries, they found that a journalism trainee scheme received around 9,000 applications, in addition to this, a Christmas term retail associate based role received 4,000 applications.

Dean Sadler, CEO at TribePad commented on these findings, saying: “While ‘New Year, New Me’, rings true when it comes to taking up new hobbies or diets, when it comes to switching jobs, our data actually reveals the opposite. People are more conservative in January, preferring to wait until the summer months to seek pastures new. This creates the perfect storm for applicants and those responsible for recruitment; school-leavers and graduates also flood the market and increase the number of applications businesses receive, while in October, businesses begin to look towards hiring temporary staff for the festive period.”
