Northern prospect at its highest ever point

Filed under: Cyber Security — Jonathan on December 5, 2012

Although there has been a recent rise in those in the UK who claim unemployment benefit, consultants from one recruitment firm are claiming that a higher number of firms in the North are presently looking at how they can recruit more permanent staff than at other times in the last two years. Therefore, anyone seeking cyber security jobs and other vacancies will likely find more success in the North if they are looking to secure a permanent position.

The Office for National Statistics released data on areas that include Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Yorkshire. The statistics reveal that some areas have witnessed a sharp growth in employment – October being the month with the greatest demand increase of permanent positions in more than 23 months.

Greg Parkinson, the Joint Managing Director of the recruitment firm, told On Rec that northern businesses didn’t have to face the issues around the apparent economic boom from the Olympics. Further, their more conservative gameplans allowed stable growth as opposed to high output in small doses – for which a large number of temporary employees were needed, but with a subsequent lull resulting in a low demand for a significant workforce. Parkinson said:

“Coupled with the renewed business confidence brought about by recent announcement [sic] that businesses in the North will receive more financial support from the Government next year, many are now in a financially stable position to expand their workforces and have approached us to discuss suitable candidates from our pool of specialist associates.”

He continued to say that we may be seeing the return of the north-south job divide – but not as we’ve seen it before.
