The Report on Jobs is a monthly publication produced by IHS Markit and sponsored by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.

Here are the key points from the UK Report on Jobs:

  • Permanent placements growth reaches 27-month record
  • Temp billings increase at the fastest rate for nearly two-and-a-half years
  • Marked decline in staff availability contributes to further increases in pay

Commenting on the latest survey results, Kevin Green, REC Chief Executive says:

“The jobs market continues to confound expectations with both permanent and temporary placements growing at the fastest rate for over two years. Starting salaries are also still rising, so for workers who want to boost their earnings now is a good time to consider moving job.

“It’s clear that employers are having to work even harder to fill jobs as vacancies rise and candidate availability shrinks.”

Here are the key points from the North Report on Jobs:

  • Growth of demand for permanent workers in the North of England outpaces UK average
  • Quicker increases in staff appointments
  • Salaries and wages rise to entice candidates

REC chief executive Kevin Green says:

“The jobs market continues to confound expectations with permanent placements in the North increasing at the fastest rate for five months, bringing up the UK average. Starting salaries are also still rising, so for workers who want to boost their earnings now is a good time to consider moving job.

“It’s clear that employers are having to work even harder to fill jobs as vacancies rise and candidate availability shrinks. UK employment remains at an all-time high and looks set to keep improving.”
