RESULTS ARE IN FROM THE REC/KPMG’S MAR ’15 ‘REPORT ON JOBS’
Key points from the March survey:
Further marked increases in permanent placements and temp billings
Salaries for permanent hires rise at sharpest rate in six months
Candidate availability tightens further
This month’s survey data highlighted further marked growth of recruitment activity across the UK. The survey’s index of job vacancies rose to a five-month high in March, signalling a strong demand for staff. Average starting salaries for people placed in permanent job roles increased further in March, and this latest increase was the strongest since last September.
However, agencies’ billings from the employment of temporary/contract staff also increased further in March. The rate of growth remained strong, despite easing slightly from February’s five-month high.
