A report into permanent IT job placements revealed a rise for the fourth consecutive month in January 2013.
Temporary jobs also saw an increase for the sixth month running. Engineering / construction and IT / computing sectors proved to be the most demand job markets in the same month. The report – Report on Jobs – was conducted by KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. The study also suggests that salaries have been rising for the last sixteen months and a factor contributing to this could be the deterioration in the availability of permanent staff. Areas of strong growth were seen in Northern England, followed by the Midlands but London and the South East saw only modest increases.
