Top companies hiring October 2020

Looking for a new start in October?

With the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme winding down this month, many workers across the UK may face uncertainty when it comes to the future. However, with a new Job Support Scheme recently announced, and some of the UK’s biggest businesses hiring now, there are plenty of jobs still out there for anyone looking for something new.

Here are just five of the top companies hiring this month on



When it comes to Britain’s best-loved brands, they don’t come much bigger than ASDA.

The supermarket giant serves more than 18 million customers every single week, helping them find everything from food for their weekly shop, through to kitchenware, travel insurance, and everything in between. 

And their importance has only grown during the pandemic – with their staff playing an absolutely vital role in ensuring we all have access to essential goods on a daily basis. 

They’re on the lookout for enthusiastic new members to join the team, now more than ever. Roles are available right across the country too, so whether you want to work in a warehouse in Widnes, drop off deliveries in Derby, or man a checkout in Chesham, they’ve got you covered.

Let’s just hope the panic buying has calmed down again before you start…

HC One

The care industry is another which has rightly received the appreciation it’s deserved during the COVID-19 crisis. But it’s also one crying out for staff.

HC-One are the UK’s largest care home operator, operating 329 of them throughout the UK specialising in dementia, nursing, residential and specialist care for elderly people.

They believe that a kinder culture is what makes them stand out. Every one of their employees understands that their residents deserve compassion, and should never lose their dignity or sense of individuality during their stay.

Pandemic, or no pandemic.

Howdens Joinery

Some companies don’t just provide careers. They build them. 

In the case of Howdens Joinery, it’s just that they also happen to build kitchens too. 

In fact, they’re the UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier, selling kitchens, joinery products, appliances, flooring, and hardware direct to the building trade.

But despite their scale, Howdens still remains a local business with local values. Just ask their 10,000 employees, and 1,600 trained kitchen designers – whose individual expertise is vital to Howdens’ success.

Want to become one of them? It’s time you joined.

They’re on the lookout for a number of enthusiastic employees, from Kitchen Designers and Depot Managers, to Warehouse Workers, Sales Representatives and cyber security staff. 

In other words, just about everything and the kitchen sink. Literally.

Locations: Throughout the UK.

OK, so far we’ve concentrated on names you’ve probably heard of. But you might not have heard of Pearson. Yet.

However, they’re actually one of the world’s leading names in learning, not to mention the UK’s largest awarding body, offering qualifications that are globally recognised and rooted in a range of General and Vocational courses.

TL;DR: when it comes to the education industry, they’re kind of a big deal.

Their mission is simple: to help people make more of their lives through learning. And with our recent research suggesting that three quarters of us have used lockdown to invest in our development, it’s little wonder that they’re in desperate need of staff.

Roles on offer this month include Moderators, Examiners and Tutors, to name just a few. There are also many roles for people without any teaching qualifications at all, with Administrators, Marketing Executives and Developers also in-demand. 

It’s time to go back to school…and get paid for it.  

Locations: Throughout the UK.
