Data compiled in the Monster Employment Index shows that IT, marketing, media and PR recorded strong annual growth, along with transport and logistics, while
Midlands leads all regions in recruitment growth over the year, with substantial rises in the number of people being recruited into sales jobs and other roles.
Michael Gentle, Monster UK & Ireland spokesperson, said it is nice to see that many sectors are forging ahead due to increased investment and positive expectations, leading to headcounts being boosted.
"Whilst the Index shows a slight dip in August and some sectors have registered annual declines, it is encouraging to see others continue to demonstrate strong growth," he added.
It comes after recent analysis of official employment figures by the Trades Union Congress showed that competition for sales jobs and other employment positions in the east of London is far greater than the opposite side of the capital.
