The latest reports from the Office of National Statistics show that the number of people out of work fell again, by 33,000 to just 1.33 million.
Why is this?
What we think
We are seeing the number of permanent employment opportunities slide which suggests that more employers are holding off taking on permanent recruits – this hesitation could be nervousness due to Brexit or flash backs to the credit crunch in 2008.
In February and March we saw a mini boom in requirements for temporary labour with companies looking to stock pile goods pre-Brexit but this requirement has dropped during quarter 2. We have seen an increase in requirements within health and welfare but have experienced reduced requirements within the automotive sector.
Even though the unemployment rate continues to drop we still have more vacancies than ever.
The candidates are out there and we are working and engaging with our clients to ensure that we are finding them the right fit to build better futures for their organisations.”
