Figures show that vacancies are up

Filed under: Recruitment General — Mark on June 18, 2013

The number of temporary and permanent jobs advertised in the last period of the first quarter were up substantially, according to Adecco. This is great news for those seeking information security contract jobs or any other temporary positions in a variety of sectors, as well as permanent roles.

The numbers reveal that the insurance and banking sector benefited the most, with a huge 32 per cent increase in advertised jobs. There were further dramatic increases in PR, advertising and marketing, up 20 per cent, and Sales, up 25 per cent.

The beginning of the year saw a harsh fall in available positions, possibly resulting from a rebalance after new budgets. March through April was when the main jump occurred – but this can possibly be explained away by the fact that, at the financial year end, many businesses are able to evaluate whether or not they have sufficient finance to increase their workforce. The increase in job vacancies shows that the UK’s job market is a healthy one.

Adecco Managing Director Steven Kirkpatrick said:

“The impressive increase in vacancies seen across all industries is undoubtedly excellent news for candidates. This quarter does however reflect the fluid nature of the market which is prone to change. Whilst candidates can feel positive that increased vacancies should provide them with a greater choice of opportunities, it is important they remain alert in their job search.”

The numbers are provided by data from Adecco and offer a job market snapshot for the UK overall.
