Top companies hiring August 2021

There are lots of reasons to be optimistic in August.

First of all, we’ve enjoyed a great – albeit, slightly different – Olympic Games, with athletes from around the world providing a much needed sense of inspiration for all generations. Exam results days are also pending, and summer holidays are already in full swing. And with job numbers also seeing a 3% increase month-on-month, hope is definitely on the horizon when it comes to the jobs market too. Even if we can’t quite say the same when it comes to the weather report.

If you’re looking for work right now, here are just five companies hiring on this month:
