Another month, another Markit Survey, another IT surge
Posted on 7th September 2018
Rest assured, these figures will, at some date in the (hopefully distant) future, not be quite as good, but just now, even those with a glass half-empty mentality would find it hard to say anything bad about the job market.
As in previous months, the figures are exceptional, especially for the area that interests us at Be-IT and in particular for perm vacancies. More generally, to quote from the RBS/Markit report, "Permanent staff appointments in Scotland increased at the fastest pace in just over four years during the latest survey period. In fact, the rate of growth was among the quickest observed in the survey's history and outpaced that recorded for the UK overall. Similarly, Scottish recruiters received greater billings for contract staff. The rate of increase quickened to a three-month high and was also above the UK average."
We should all make hay while the sun shines! If you're looking to move job to take advantage of this booming market, please get in touch.
