RSG responds to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s latest jobs market

Mike Beesley, CEO of RSG, said: “Results from the latest REC Jobs Outlook Report are to be expected as Brexit-sized events do not happen every day, so of course will have a significant impact on the market.

“The survey reveals an understandable lower confidence in recent months. Just one in five UK employers reported feeling more confident about economic conditions - a drop from over half in May.

“Some firms may feel now is a time to avoid risk or investment and this could be translated as negativity.

“However, there are also positive noises coming from the market that we need to listen to. As a business, we have been heartened to see so many employers and businesses react with caution to making a knee-jerk reaction to the situation, which is in turn creating confidence across the board.”

The REC report has been released as quarterly results from APSCo also indicated a mixed response in permanent placements.

The APSCo report shows that roles in finance and marketing are still on the up in temp and perm placements. But there is a marked decline in placements in London, the Midlands and south Scotland. Meanwhile, the north of England saw a significant rise, with higher temp billings across all regions except London. Overall, salaries are also on the rise.

Beesley continued: “There are some signs already that fears of a slump over the next quarter are reducing, so, overall, we must continue to invest in jobs and employment opportunities in the months and years to come to create the right infrastructure for economic growth.”
