CV-Library reacts to ONS Labour Market Statistics

Reacting to the latest ONS Labour Market Statistics, released today, Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments:

“The employment rate is continuing to climb, which is positive news given that the final few months of the year can often see hiring levels stagnate. Our own data for the same period (October – December 2016, inclusive) found that jobs were up by 14.4% when comparing figures with the same period in 2015, while applications also grew by a steady 3.4%. It’s clear that there is a stable labour demand and it’s promising that there is a healthy pipeline of talent available to fill these positions.”
