Figures released by Reed this week show the final quarter of 2012 was the best performing for new jobs since 2009.
UK jobseekers have the highest number of new employment opportunities at their disposal for three years and the jobs market is significantly more buoyant than a year ago.The final quarter of 2012 saw the highest number of new employment opportunities on offer for three years and a 10% year-on-year rise in new vacancies available during December.
As far as AV Jobs is concerned that would certainly be reflected in our Audio Visual vacancies, which are continuing to come in on a daily basis. Indeed in the first 3 working days in 2013 we received multiple job vacancies from our clients showing an increase already of 30% against December’s high.
The largest monthly measure of conditions and trends in employment opportunities in the UK indicates that the market is over 10% stronger than it was this time last year and registered consistent quarterly growth over the course of 2012.
Commenting on the latest figures, Mark Rhodes, marketing director at reed.co.uk, said:
“2012 has been a year of consistent recovery for the jobs market. We have seen growth across the board in the majority of sectors and regions as employers become increasingly less cautious about their approach to taking on new personnel.
“While the wider economic climate makes it difficult to make predictions for the year ahead, the growing sense of optimism among employers is likely to persist and leading official indicators such as the latest ONS figures also continue to point towards an upward trend in jobs growth. There will undoubtedly continue to be bumps along the way but 2013 promises to be another year of continued recovery.”
