Septembers Report on Jobs

Flame Health are interested in Septembers Report on Jobs by the REC/KPMG. It has shown that rates of expansion of both permanent and temporary/contract staff appointments moderated. In both cases, the latest increases were the weakest for just over two years, amid reports from panelists of fragile client confidence. 
Key points of the report included that there was a slow increase in permanent placements and temporary billings since August 2009. A weak rise in job vacancies for almost 2 years, pay pressures and a stronger improvement in candidate availability.
Although job vacancies continued to rise in September, the rate of growth eased further. Overall demand for staff increased at the slowest pace since October 2009. Weaker expansions of demand were signaled for both permanent and temporary/contract workers.
The availability of permanent candidates improved for an eighth successive month in September, and at the sharpest rate since December 2009. Growth of short-term staff availability picked up to a seven-month high.  
Commenting in the latest data, Kevin Green, the REC''s Chief Executive, said:
"Employers are being very cautious about hiring at the moment. This has been exacerbated by weak consumer confidence which leads to people staying in their current role rather than changing jobs."
