As the government furlough scheme begins to phase out – ending completely at the end of October, national research by the CIPD shows around one-third of employers are planning to cut staff numbers; with hospitality, retail, transport and storage industries to be worst hit.
It’s not all bad news though as other sectors have announced they will be hiring new workers and we can help you prepare for jobs in these areas; IT and digital technology, warehousing, supermarkets, lorry drivers and cleaning.
