According to recent article by REC, the employment market has shown a heightened level of uncertainty with candidates wanting to ‘Switch roles’ due to Brexit. This has led to a sharp decline in candidate availability in January, and, coupled with UK employment levels, have therefore had an effect on salaries within the market.

“Both employers and employees are in ‘wait and see mode’ now and there is little reason to believe the brakes will come off the jobs market before we find out what sort of Brexit the UK is about to experience.”

James Stewart, Vice Chair at KPMG

Latest reports have shown both salaries and temp wages are both increasing strongly since December, rising at historically strong rates. With vacancies rising and labour supply falling we are still very much in a candidate driven market.
