Covid sees youngsters flock to trainee adviser roles

“However, it's important to remember that August is typically a slower month for hiring – even during a pandemic. It’s vital that employers don’t lose faith in the job market.”

Mr Bamford is hopeful that when the furlough scheme is closed on October 31, it will become easier to fill experienced positions.

He said: “I suspect that in a month or two we will have better luck trying to fill the more experienced role as when furlough ends more people will be out there looking for jobs. 

“Due to furlough, people are quite happy to be receiving 80 per cent pay and being at home but once this ends, and some people are inevitably made redundant, then people will be out looking for jobs again.”
