A recent report on UK jobs from the REC/KPMG has revealed some interesting information as we move into a new year of recruitment.

Based on December activity:

  • The number of Permanent vacancies has dropped
  • The number of temporary & freelance vacancies has increased at a modest pace
  • Candidate availability fell

So, what does this mean for you?


  • Recruitment activity does tend to fall in the run-up to Christmas (we’re sure you can relate!)
  • So far in January, we’ve seen a significant rise in hiring already
  • Despite the economic uncertainty, signs are that there wouldn’t be a significant reduction in recruitment activity

So, if you’re open to a new role or want advice on hiring for your team, now is a GREAT time to get in touch with our team.

How can you do that?
