UK Report on Jobs – January 2024.

The latest report on jobs by the REC & KPMG was released today. At Wagstaff whilst we witnessed a slight reduction in recruitment projects in December, we have not seen a decrease in permanent placement activity; in fact, quite the opposite.

December 2023 marked one of our strongest months for permanent placements. By this, we mean people who commenced their new jobs in December. Interviews also continued throughout December, and January began with us receiving job offers and key roles advancing to final stage interviews.

We do anticipate the recruitment landscape for January and February to continue to change, typically during this period we can witness a reduction in recruitment activity – but who knows, nothing seems to be that predictable anymore! (and for now it remains busy)

We have registered a decrease in contract labour requirements this January, this follows our clients’ December peaks in manufacturing – again this is normal especially in the food manufacturing sector.
