Job vacancies up in South East despite Brexit turmoil
Professional vacancies have increased 3% since this time last year across the South East despite Brexit turmoil. That is according to new research from the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), the leading trade body representing the recruitment sector.
The data, provided by recruitment software company, Innovantage, which analyses monthly hiring trends in the UK, also reveals that the region is the second top area for job opportunities in the UK, with the North West being the first.
Commenting on the data, Rina Durban, Membership Relations Manager at APSCo said:
“The South East region has always been a fantastic area for job opportunities. The region is bucking the UK’s trend of falling vacancies, despite Brexit being just around the corner. There are several sectors soaring in the South East, such as HR, which has seen demand increase by 22% and banking and insurance, rising by 13%.”
