ONS labour market commentary from totaljobs

John Salt, Group Sales Director, totaljobs

Company Profile


“As the economy continues to defy some experts’ predictions, it’s positive to see unemployment falling. Business confidence has clearly remained strong in the face of plenty of challenges, and this bodes well for the future.

“This confidence is something we’ve seen reflected in our own statistics, with the Totaljobs Employment Index revealing that job postings on the totaljobs website were up 7% year-on-year in October.

“Obviously events in the US could bring disruption and instability, meaning that unemployment could start to edge back up. As always, we encourage the government to keep on pushing a pro-business agenda to create conditions where businesses of all sizes can keep on hiring.”
