Job market rises at quickest rate since May 2011

Filed under: Recruitment General — Stephanie on March 20, 2012

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG has announced that the number of permanent employee placements has increased again in February, showing the best growth rates since May 2011. This is based on a Report on Jobs which was published recently.

In general the recruitment levels increased at the quickest rate recorded for the past four months, with a positive growth in permanent positions balancing the slower increase in temporary job roles. The IT and computing sector was the highest demand job market for permanent roles, and engineering and construction was at the top of the temporary job leader board.

The talent pool expanded in February also, but less dramatically than in previous months. The CEO for REC commented:

“The labour market is clearly improving as this month’s Report on Jobs shows the strongest performance on permanent placements for nine months. Demand for staff also rose at the quickest pace for four months, so jobseekers should take heart that there are vacancies out there. Slowly, private sector employers are becoming more confident as the gloom, caused by a slowing economy late last year and fears about the Eurozone, recedes.”

Professional roles including those in IT are proving popular in the hospitality sector and those with expertise in risk and network threat are particularly in demand.

Although unemployment is set to rise marginally in the following months, the positive indications in the private sector suggest the job market will recover easily by the year’s end and into 2013. This all bodes well for those seeking permanent IT security jobs.
