Chris Futcher, CEO of Pulse Accounting, comments on the latest REC/KPMG Report on Jobs:

“It appears that there is a little less heat in the market than previously, as, while permanent placements continued to rise in September, the rate of expansion is at a two and a half year low. Temp and contract billings increased at the weakest pace in the current 29-month period of growth.

“While the talent shortage is driving remuneration up for workers, it’s bad news for businesses who may find their growth constrained if this continues and puts critical projects in the UK at risk.”
