Job market surges as economy picks up

London still remains top for tech investment in Europe - but for how long?

Around 200,000 new jobs were posted in the UK last week.

As the economy picks back up, more jobs were posted last week in a reassuring sign said the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

“Rising job adverts for roles that require key skills to get hired – from IT to haulage – highlight the ongoing need to put the skills and job search support people need in place,” said REC chief executive Neil Carberry.

“Tackling this mis-match, in the context of a tightening labour market, should be a priority for government and businesses, working together.


“We need to act now to make sure we do the right thing for jobseekers and our economy. That means a plan that reforms the skills system by listening to business about what is really needed, like changes to the apprenticeship levy.”

Most of the jobs with the high areas of growth are in London.
