Hiring Trends - Job Report for September 2018

REC October 2018 Report on Jobs Summary

 

Summarised findings from throughout September 2018 published in the REC Report on Jobs Summary.


“UK Businesses are resilient, but they’re struggling to find the people they need to drive growth and opportunity. Recruiters’ specialist skills help to address this, but with Brexit looming a comprehensive mobility deal with the EU will be needed to underpin prosperity. Higher skills investment, driven by a reformed apprenticeship levy, will also be essential.

 

An effective approach to post-Brexit immigration must acknowledge that there is an unmet need for roles of all sorts- not just those filled by the very highest earners. Keeping deliveries going, patients being treated and goods on the shelves mean an open approach to workers from elsewhere. Businesses understand the need for control – but this is not in conflict with openness to those who come to contribute.” Neil Carberry, Chief Executive at the REC
