Recent data shows that job vacancy numbers are recovering, with a 14% week-on-week increase at the beginning of the month.
In fact, according to the Broadbean Technology statistics, new roles advertised hit pre-Covid levels.
Across the sectors, those reporting the greatest week-on-week rise in demand were education (42%), healthcare (36%), construction (36%) and transport (27%).
The figures also indicate that the furlough scheme is acting as a potential safety net for UK staff, with a 62% drop in the number of people actively seeking new roles in July when compared to the same time last year.
Alex Fourlis, Managing Director at Broadbean Technology, commented on the findings, “The continued recovery that we’ve noted over the last few weeks is certainly promising and to finally be able to say that job numbers are back at pre-Covid levels is a reassuring sign that we’re on the right path.”
