Reed December 2010 job index indicates year-on-year growth
According to the latest Reed Job Index, IT and engineering contractors were in strong demand in December 2010. The report demonstrated a 12-month high not only for engineering and IT, but also for the other core disciplines of media, consulting and marketing. Martin Warnes, Managing Director of reed.co.uk commented, “The jobs economy has undoubtedly avoided a much-predicted double-dip in 2010, and the private sector continues to lead a steady recovery in new job demand.”
At a regional level, year-on-year job demand has increased by more than 10% in the Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside, East Anglia and Scotland, and by 5% or more in London and the South East.
