The prestigious university city of Cambridge is famous for many reasons. Situated on the banks of the River Cam, this quaint market town is well-known for its beautiful architecture, award-winning punting tours, and its respected university campuses which have produced intelligent graduates including Stephen Hawking and Sir Isaac Newton. According to the World Population Review, Cambridge has an estimated population of 129,000, which factors in 25,000 students. So, there is a huge candidate and client market for recruiters to get stuck into.
Cambridge is a good place to be if you’re a jobseeker
According to research compiled by job website Adzuna, Cambridge has been named as the top destination in the UK for jobseekers. The research revealed that there are 0.7 jobseekers per vacancy – which means that fewer candidates are competing for the same role.
Andrew Hunter, Co-Founder of Adzuna, says: “Despite positive noise from the labour market in the first half of 2018, this latest data suggests a summer slowdown in the UK jobs market and a clear salary stagnation across the country.
“Britain’s biggest employers are nervous, anxious and looking for answers around Brexit."
