Permanent Staff Salaries Rising At Fastest Rate Since 2007 - Rec

Recommended Posts

British employers are raising the salaries they offer to new permanent staff at the fastest rate in nearly seven years as they struggle to fill vacancies, a survey showed on Tuesday.

The figures from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation suggest Britain's strong economic recovery last year is finally translating into higher pay. However, they also raise questions about whether domestic inflation might soon start to rise above the Bank of England's 2 percent target.

The REC said its monthly survey showed that average salaries for permanent staff were up by the biggest amount since July 2007, though wage growth for temporary staff slowed slightly.

"Starting salaries and hourly pay rates are up as employers battle to entice the talent they need," REC policy director Tom Hadley said.

"Worsening candidate shortages mean that the number of people available to fill both temporary and permanent jobs is falling at the sharpest rate in nearly a decade," he added.

The REC said the strongest demand for staff was in engineering, construction and information technology, and urged the government to relax visa restrictions on highly skilled immigrants and improve training for the long-term unemployed.

I thought the same over my own salary which is soaring ahead....

Is this just in London?

what they mean is there is a candidate shortage as far as the recruitment industry sees.

10 agents recruiting for the same job are going to see a shortage in candidates.

I do volunteering for the Council based employment help schemes...they see that there are 150 candidates for even middle range jobs..The executive job club has decided to turn itself into a co-op to find all the newly self employed executives work as a group consultancy.

shortage?...just what is going unmade, undelivered and undeveloped?

It's probably a case of software companies finding it difficult to recruit experienced software developers for £35k in central London..

Which is clearly a case of skills shortage and not 'Not paying enough to cover someone's rent - housing bubble''.

+1.

Software engineers used to earn that 15 years ago.

Most of the software engineers I meet are immigrations from eastern Europe and India

Why would you want to work for £35K when you can become a banker and get that a month.

Sorry, I wasn't sure if this a joke? How much of a pay rise have you been given this year?

For the record, I'm possible looking at 2%. Which is better than anyone else I know.

Yep, what we need is more people coming here from low cost countries, where earning £25,000 is a dream, these guys can then live eight to a two bedroom flat and spend as little as possible here so to save as much as possible so they can live the high life back home when they return in a few years, meanwhile the UK is hollowed out as everyone turns their back on technical skills and we can't even build our own power stations any more...
