REC and KPMG Report on Jobs

The REC and the KPMG report on jobs have stated that permanent placements continued to rise in March.
The main findings on the report were:

  • Permanent staff placements increase for third month in a row
  • IT & Computing sector leads upturn in permanent job vacancy growth to eight-month high
  • Permanent staff salaries stagnate
  • Candidate availability rises at weaker pace
  • Differing trends in permanent and temporary appointments suggest a link to Agency

Recruitment consultants reported a rise in permanent staff placements for the third month in succession during March, albeit at a slower pace than February’s nine-month
Overall demand for staff strengthened in March, as the number of vacancies available to jobseekers rose at the fastest pace since July 2011. The pick-up in growth was driven by a stronger increase in permanent job vacancies, which offset a slower rise in the number of available short-term roles.
