ONS Labour Market Statistics - CV-Library reaction

Lee Biggins, Founder & CEO of CV-Library responds to the ONS Labour Market Statistics:

“However, our own data has suggested that while applications for new jobs are up year-on-year, since June, application growth has increased by a minimal 0.3%, despite there being a 13.3% increase in job vacancies on offer.  

“This begs the question; will the UK job market's steady growth continue? With the announcement of Boris Johnson as our new Prime Minister, the chances of forcing a no-deal Brexit have sky-rocketed. What’s more, employers are unlikely to accelerate their hiring efforts until our European future is confirmed at the end of October. With businesses and candidates alike feeling nervous about our future outside the EU, the pressure is on to maintain sky-high levels of employment."
