Recruitment Continues to Rise Throughout September!
A recent survey carried out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) on recruitment consultancy companies shows that permanent staff placements during September saw a substantial rise. Temporary billings also increased at a sharp rate, with the Midlands experiencing the fastest rise, seeing growth close to the 15 year high which was recorded in August. According to the results obtained, all four English regions saw growth within permanent placements, with the North experiencing the sharpest rise and the South suffering the slowest. Construction was the sector seeing the strongest growth, followed closely by Engineering. Demand for staff also strongly increased last month, and Kevin Green from the REC said “This month’s figures show the jobs market continues to be a success story in the UK economy with all regions and sectors experiencing growth”. He also shared positive information regarding starting salaries – “The good news continues with starting salaries for permanent jobs rising at the fastest rate in over five and a half years and they have been rising for the last 17 months”.
