Recruitment and Employment Confederation Stats for September

REC report

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) produce Report on Jobs*with IHS Markit every month, the latest report has been published today and is attached for your information.

The key finding for this month is that after a dip in permanent hiring in the lead up to and shortly after the EU Referendum, permanent staff placements have returned to growth. This is good news, although there are still signs that employers are more cautious about making hiring decisions in some regions – for instance in London.

Job vacancies have also risen again, at a sharper rate than last month, and recruiters are finding it more difficult than ever to find suitably skilled candidates to fulfil these roles.  Demand is highest in engineering and healthcare for permanent jobs, and in the hospitality sector for temporary jobs.
