New research has revealed the top companies Brits want to work for right now. The study by marketing training center School of Marketing analyzed the top jobs and careers searches on Google to see which private sector companies Britons are most keen to work for at the moment.

Tesco emerged as the most popular company, with the multinational supermarket seeing more than 362,000 searches per month on average for openings. There are an average of 232,000 searches per month for ‘Tesco jobs’ and 130,000 per month for ‘Tesco careers’. It is by far the most popular company to work for at the moment, with over 150,000 searches over second place Amazon.

Amazon takes second place, with more than 184,000 searches per month for “Amazon jobs” and more than 12,000 monthly searches for “Amazon careers”, adding up to an average of 196,000 searches per month for Amazon opportunities from Brits.

Coming in third with over 138,000 searches per month for openings is Asda. This is thanks to over 114,000 searches for ‘Asda jobs’ and 24,000 searches each month for ‘Asda careers’.

Sainsbury’s comes in fourth position on the list, with 111,000 monthly searches for “Sainsbury’s jobs” and 17,000 monthly searches for “Sainsbury’s careers”, totaling 128,000 searches per month.

On average, there are 116,000 searches per month for “Royal Mail jobs” and 11,000 searches for “Royal Mail careers” for a total of 127,000.

Commenting on the results, Ritchie Mehta, CEO of the School of Marketing, said: “It is clear where the interest is now in the private sector job market, and it is in supermarkets. Additionally, some supermarkets are much more popular for job prospects than others.

“With major brands at the top of many people’s minds when they begin a job search, smaller businesses have to work harder to find and attract skilled employees. One extremely effective way to do this is to use initiatives such as the Apprenticeship Levy scheme to bring in new staff or train current ones in digital and data-led programmes, with the vast majority of the training cost covered by the levy.

The study was conducted by the School of Marketing, which offers leading apprenticeships in digital and data marketing.
