The UK Sees Record Number of Jobs Advertised, Amid Skill Shortage
Thinking about establishing your career in the United Kingdom? Now is the time to begin your journey, and Fresh Start UK can support you and your family in achieving UK residency.
The UK has seen a record number of jobs being advertised in the UK.
There were reported to be 1.85 million job adverts in the last week of July, with up to 200,000 being added every week in the past month, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has said.
Kate Shoesmith, deputy chief executive of the REC, said: “This new data shows the continued strength of the jobs market in the UK, despite any wider economic uncertainty.”
“The number of job adverts being posted each week is stable. It’s a great time to be looking for work as a jobseeker, as employers are having to think more about the pay, benefits, conditions and development opportunities they offer both new starters and current staff as they compete for talent.”
“We know that employers’ confidence in the broader economy has started to drop. Government must play its role, both in supporting people and businesses through the current crisis, and also by working with industry to create a sustainable labour market.
“We need a long-term workforce strategy that encompasses skills and immigration and makes childcare and local transport part of the infrastructure of our labour market.”
