Hiring Trends - Job Report for November 2018

KPMG and REC UK Report on Jobs Summary – December 2018

 

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


“It is very encouraging for the region that the number of permanent roles available in the South are growing at a quicker pace than the national average, and that the salaries on offer for the positions are strong, having risen markedly in the last month, at what is, in fact, one of the fastest rates seen in 20 years.

This does reflect the business strength that we have been seeing via our clients in the South. Clearly, there is a great deal of political uncertainty around at present, but it is reassuring that it is not impacting growth in the region.’  Karen Witton, South Regional Chair at KPMG

 ‘Today’s report backs up what recruiters across the country are saying to us. Fewer people are willing to change employer and look for jobs in this uncertain climate, despite rising pay and jobs being available. Sectors like hospitality and warehousing are facing particular challenges in the run-up to Christmas.’ Recruitment & Employment Confederation chief executive Neil Carberry
