Rec - Report on Jobs - COVID-19 pandemic leads to record falls in recruitment activity

Monday, 18 May 2020

Summary The latest KPMG and REC, UK Report on Jobs survey pointed to a sharp deterioration in conditions across the UK jobs market as businesses put their recruitment plans on ice amid the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Overall, permanent staff appointments and temp billings fell at the sharpest rates in the survey’s 22-year history. Strict measures to contain the spread of the virus, which include temporary company closures, also led to a record drop in overall vacancies. Weaker demand for staff also drove renewed falls in starting pay. At the same time, the availability of candidates rose at the steepest rate since 2009 amid widespread reports of redundancies.

Book Reviews

"Reading is the main way that I both learn new things and test my understanding." Bill Gates in an interview with the New York Times in 2016

Everyone in a leadership position knows that gaining knowledge, remaining curious and being challenged are good and even essential ways to keep on top of things.

We all have our reading lists, but too often it’s hard to find time to get started with them. So we’ll provide a regular review by Ophicleide, one of our associates, to tempt us to read the actual book! And we are more than happy to accept reviews from others. Do please contact us if you have one to present.
