Jobs update from the REC
The August Rec “Report on Jobs” highlighted an increase in the numbers of candidates available for work. This might be down to more confidence in looking for new opportunities from people in employment, but could also be a result in the increase of unemployed numbers.
The good news shows that the industry has seen a further increase in the number of permanent placements and temporary jobs which may have resulted out of new assignments as well as replacement of former staff who have moved on.
Unfortunately, despite the rise in living costs, salary structures have not changes except where business have sought to attract external specialist skills.
