Latest Report on Jobs

The latest Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s Report on Jobs provide the most comprehensive guide to the Midlands’ labour market.

Early in the New Year, people often think about changing jobs, so employers are urged to think carefully about how they can retain existing capabilities and find the new hires they need.  The survey data can really help inform and shape future recruitment strategy.

In a nutshell the Report shows that the competition for talented people intensifies and in particular -

  • Faster growth of permanent staff placements
  • Strong starting salary growth maintained
  • Continued reports of candidate shortages

Whilst some employers as a response to candidate shortages are offering increased starting salaries to attract staff it isn’t translating into significant wage growth across the economy yet.

At Plum Personnel we are encouraging our clients to consider going to wider talent pools, to be inventive about how they can further improve their employer brand and make themselves an even more attractive place to work.
