Employment Market Data June 23
A report by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and Lightcast has shown a slight decrease in the number of active job postings leading into June, however despite economic uncertainty the total number of advertised vacancies was over 2 million. Some of this reflects the sustained high level of demand in the market – but some of it will be a response to shortages, as firms leave adverts open for longer than normal.
In engineering professions there has been a drop of 1% for metal working and maintenance fitters and a drop of 1.8% for electricians and electrical fitters.
The number of active postings was 2,031,765 – a 2.4% decrease compared to the previous week. But this still reflects a big increase on this time last year (1,496,157).
