Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that the current trend of permanent and temporary job vacancy increases is expected to continue, according to an expert.
Cheryl Morgan, spokesperson for Jobsite, said that due to the recession firms will continue to be cautious but that it remained likely that vacancies will continue to rise at a steady rate over the coming months.
She added: "Jobsite's most recent quarterly market tracker report also showed a continuing rise in vacancy numbers, particularly for larger organisations of 250+ employees.
"Firms should make clear the various benefits of working for that organisation e.g. flexible hours, greater holiday entitlement, clear pay scales etc to attract the best candidates to the role."
A report published yesterday (May 5th) by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG found "marked increases" in both permanent and temporary/contract staff appointments during April.
