Latest Report on Jobs for July, 2017

Key points

– 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

Kevin Green – Chief Executive of the REC commented

“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. UK employment remains at an all-time high and looks set to keep improving.”
