Job demand 'rising in the UK'

Demand for new UK workers rose to a six-month high in September, offering some good news to those in sales recruitment.

The Reed Job Index has risen by two points to reach 104, which is the highest level since 105 was recorded in February.

It also showed that job demand improved strongest in the IT and telecoms, customer service, leisure and tourism, and media, digital and creative industries. The public sector was found to have fared the worst.

In addition, the research showed that the salaries for new jobs increased slightly when compared to last month, rising to 96 points from the 95 which has been constant for the past four months.

The index sets its monthly points by monitoring the number of new job opportunities and the salaries in the UK labour market and comparing them to the baseline score of 100 that was established when it was launched in December 2009.

Last month, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation Report on Jobs showed that the pace of rises in both permanent and temporary staff appointments is starting to slow.
