UK Employment Market
A recent report compiled by the REC and KPMG indicates that the UK Employment market is currently out-performing its European counterparts. Recruitment consultancies are reporting an increase in both permanent and temporary placements, unlike in Europe where it is stagnant or in some areas negative.
The industry prediction is that this growth of job vacancies will continue to increase throughout the remainder of 2014.
The report also indicates that there is a shortage of skilled candidates, within both the permanent and contract markets which will drive up starting salaries.
The growth in placements is currently higher in the private sector than the public sector. Recent trading statistics highlight a 12% increase in net fee income in the private sector as opposed to 8% in the public sector.
These findings in the latest REC report echo the message from previous releases that the UK employment market continues to strengthen. This will reinforce the view that investors should concentrate on UK recruitment consultancies.
