Recruitment Update

Posted: 25th January 2017

From this month’s The Report on Jobs: South, a monthly publication produced by Markit and sponsored by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation:

Key points from December survey:

  • Slower increases in both permanent and temporary job placements
  • Inflation of temporary pay at seven-month high
  • Candidate availability declines at softer pace

Commenting on the latest survey results, REC Chief Executive Kevin Green says:
“The jobs market continues to beat expectations as we begin the New Year. More people are finding jobs each month, and demand for staff is growing. We’ve seen two months of growth in London, which is particularly encouraging following a difficult period between the EU referendum and October.

“The big question for 2017 is about how employers will fill vacancies. The unemployment rate is at a record low and candidate availability for temporary jobs has been getting worse for the last three and a half years. There is an urgent need for people to fill roles in catering, care, and food manufacturing – in these sectors especially employers rely heavily on workers from the EU.”
