Weekly job adverts top one million as lockdown eases (REC 17th July)
Matthew Mee, Director, Workforce Intelligence at Emsi said:
“It’s positive to see a continued rise in job posting activity over the last 2 weeks in certain sectors, locations and occupations – albeit this is of course tempered with a significant rise in redundancies and claimant counts across a number of UK industries.
“The next 2-3 months are going to be critical to understand the true impact of the furlough scheme and wider government support programs. We believe recruitment marketing activity will continue to be a useful lead indicator to predict how and where the economy is adapting to market conditions – however it’s also crucial to understand changes in the supply side of the labour market in parallel, which is why we’ve recently introduced this data into Emsi tools.
“Recruiters will play a key role in the months ahead as we all try to keep Britain working!”
