    Greatest Boost In Job Vacancies Since 15 Years


    Not only salaries and new appointment are increasing, demand for new staff is also growing at the fastest epoch since 1998 – Workers Direct
    Temp workers are enjoying the fastest boost in temporary or contract vacancies while engineering workers and the medical sector getting a rise in Permanent roles. Demand for new staff is rising at the fastest epoch since 1998 in the UK, in the latest indication of increased strength in the labor market.
    According to a study by accountancy firm and recruitment and employment federation "Growth in salary and the number of appointments also strongly rose in November 2013. Not only number of appointments is increasing the rate of salary rises for permanent jobs, pay rate is also increased for temporary workers.
    Improvements were recorded in both the private and public sector across all UK regions, although demand for staff in the private sector is still surpassing that from government employers. This demand is signaling a multinational recovery in the labour market.
    However, whereas job listings are increasing, the accessibility of candidates to fill permanent roles last month fell at the sharpest rate since November 2007, a dynamic that may put unreasonable pressure on restorative businesses.
    "As a result employers are trying to tempt prime talent to alter jobs by providing more within the manner of cash or incentives. It’s a scheme which will bring short-term success, however the threat of incorrectly inflating the job market should be careful. Left free, it may place spare and unsustainable pressure on businesses simply at the time their cash flow problems are reduced.”
