Contractor News Roundup: July 2020
The latest Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC)/KPMG Report on Jobs reveals that demand for IT workers and engineers has ‘bucked the trend’ in August, continuing to rise at a time when UK employment growth is slowing. According to REC Chief Executive Kevin Green, despite the slow-down in jobs growth, shortages of skilled workers in some occupations have begun to appear, including in key contracting disciplines such as IT and engineering. This is good news for contractors, as Green explains, “The report highlights the emergence of specific shortage areas, such as chefs, nurses, engineers and internet developers, which will provide opportunities for those with the right skills.”
