ONS employment rises - May 2018

By Martin Talbot, Director at totaljobs:

“Today’s result marks another record-breaking employment rate for the UK. As such, job confidence has rocketed to an all-time high, with job security also resisting the pressure experienced across other sectors such as retail.

“It’s an exciting time for the employment sector and we are eager to see how employers will respond in such a competitive recruitment space.

“The ongoing optimism in the UK labour market is a very encouraging sign, and supports the recent positivity fronted by Amazon, who just announced its plans to create 2,500 jobs this year to expand its UK workforce.

“We have seen a continued resilience in job availabilities on our platform as well - totaljobs currently has over 260,000 jobs live onsite. With availabilities in most industries, it’s a buyer’s market. For those interested in pursuing a new challenge or career path, now is the time to get started.”
