Web-based jobs decline countered by public sector growth

Filed under: News — Mark on August 16, 2012

The web-based job market has declined year-on-year in July. So those seeking risk management jobs and business continuity vacancies, among others, would be advised to look beyond the Internet for their next career move. However, the community, defence and public sector category revealed a substantial increase in job vacancies, says Monster Employment Index UK.

The three per cent year-on-year fall in internet job postings saw the only negative growth trends in over four years and comes after June’s static growth. The index is created by researching trends over a large number of corporate career job boards and websites, including Monster.

Public sector positions increased by 23 per cent thanks to a higher demand for voluntary and part-time roles, says Monster. The one other sector that showed growth with double digits was research and development, at 10 per cent. That was the largest growth rate in the sector in four months. Second was transport, post and logistics, at a five per cent increase.

Four industries showed a year-on-year decrease over 10 per cent; insurance, finance and banking at 13 per cent, media, PR and marketing at 12 per cent, along with extraction and construction, repair, maintenance, manufacturing and production at 11 per cent.

The one region with a rise in web-based recruitment, at one per cent, was the Midlands. Jaguar Land Rover announced 1,000 new vacancies, which provided a boost to the region. The regions showing the worst decline were Northern Ireland, at eight per cent, the South-West, at nine per cent, and Wales with 13 per cent.
