    More Jobs than People?

    ​More jobs than people?Not strictly speaking, however this week, according to the BBC and ONS, it was reported that there were more job vacancies, than there were those seeking a role. Does logic, therefore, suggest that if you want a job there’s one for you?Of course not, and we know that. Operating in our markets, Manufacturing and Automotive, it’s about more than a bum on a seat, our clients have specific requirements and skills they require to remain competitive, efficient and growing. So the skills shortage hasn’t evaporated overnight!There are some encouraging trends. People who have been inactive economically, aged between 16 and 64, are moving into work, and job to job moves have been driven by people resigning from a role, rather than being dismissed or made redundant.However, as we see a rise in inflation, now at 9% (18th May 2022), here at Expion, we see more people than ever before citing an increased salary as a reason to move role. Whilst most people say ‘money isn’t everything’ (and it isn’t), it is becoming more understandable as a justifiable reason for people to seek a new role. We reported in our Market Report in April, 59% of workers said a pay rise is essential to them. If it’s not on offer where they are, it’s a compelling reason to look for a role.And whilst flexible working offers the opportunity for some people to manage commuting costs, it will be interesting to see whether there’s a growth in people’s interest in returning more to the office when fuel costs rise again in October. Shivering on a Teams call is likely to become increasingly unpopular when a fully heated office is available!So when there are more jobs than people, what else can employers do?Benefits can be a big draw. We’re seeing employers offering increased benefits packages, bonuses (including sign-on bonuses), and support for those wishing to gain qualifications. Wellness benefits are also on the rise. 24% of employers in our report said they were offering financial support through information, advice, and online resources, and 13% said they were offering actual financial support to workers.Not all of this is forecast to last. With inflation tipped to hit 10%, and industry stating that prices are continuing to rise, economists have once again mentioned the word ‘recession’. If history is to be repeated, this will mean job losses and a rising unemployment rate.So what does this mean for recruitment? We know that recruitment tends to be one of the first industries to be hit when there’s economic uncertainty, and one of the first to recover. It’s fair to say this has certainly played out over the last 2 years. There’s no sign yet of any slowdown, however, the market is unusually overheated at the moment so any initial slowdown is likely to be more a return to normal rather than alarm bells. But in the meantime, what a market to be in. And this is a market that suits all ‘gens’. From Gen X who are mid-career and want a work-life balance and stability before… (well you know) to tech-savvy millennials in Gen Y, and Gen Z who are much more likely to move roles after a shorter period of time. There are opportunities out there for everyone at the moment, so make the most of them!For more information on how we can support you, get in touch with us via this website, or even give us a call!

    UK Report on Jobs May 2022

    ​May's UK Report on Jobs makes interesting readingThere's nothing revelatory in the data, there's still a candidate shortage, starting salaries remain on the rise and demand for staff is still growing. Placements however have slipped to a 13-month low. This is largely driven by recruiters reporting they struggle to find people for jobs and candidate numbers fall.Skills in short supply range widely. From Accountants to Life Scientists, and Logistics Managers to Nurses, it seems fair to assume that if you are seeking a role, there's a choice available.However, we're not seeing a relaxation of role criteria. With workloads stretched, there seems to be little appetite for taking on people who 'aren't quite able to fulfill the role', and managers reallocating work or delaying projects, rather than employ someone who requires considerable time input.According to ONS data, unemployment levels are below pre-Covid levels, salary rises are on average just over 5%, however, this doesn't fully compensate for the rising inflation, which is reported could reach 10% by the end of the year. Some candidates are feeling the pinch, and looking for a new role with a higher salary is now a valid reason for a job search.https://www.rec.uk.com/our-view/news/press-releases/report-jobs-tight-labour-market-conditions-lead-further-rapid-increases-starting-payIf you'd like a copy of the full report, let us know.

    UK Report on Jobs - April 2022

    ​In this ever changing world, the recruitment industry is still moving at pace, and whether you're hiring or planning for a career move, this report will give you a flavour of what's happening in the market now.As unemployment continues to stay low, employers are faced with unfilled vacancies. Whilst the rate of growth in terms of placements has dipped, much of this is attributed to the shortage of candidates and the after effects of the pandemic, lack of EU workers and uncertainty due to the war. For job seekers, there's choice in the market for those who have in-demand skills, starting salaries are rising accordingly, and are currently at the highest levels since before the pandemic.Vacancy growth is still accelerating, with the highest levels since September 2021, and demand for both permanent and temporary staff continues to grow. Whilst IT remains the most in-demend skill, Hotel & Catering has risen marginally above Accounting/Finance and Engineering. Given the dependancy of this sector on EU workers, the challenges in Europe are likely to continually impact in this area.At Expion, we're seeing record levels of vacancies, but candidates are becoming ever more selective about the roles they are willing to consider. A recent poll carried out by us about the key benefits valued most by candidates, flexibility was the most desired aspect of a new role after salary. In fact, most candidate conversations include some discussion around this. Our view is that employers who continually adapt and evaluate their working practices are likely to prevail in the acquisition of in-demand workers.If you'd like to discuss any aspect of the curret maret conditions, please get in touch with us, we'd love to hear from you.​​
