More vacancies on offer in May than April and 17% more than a year earlier, according to the Reed Job Index
THE jobs market is at its healthiest since 2008 following a record rise in new posts, says a report by a leading recruitment firm.
There were 8% more vacancies on offer in May than April and 17% more than a year earlier, according to the Reed Job Index.
Significantly, reports The Independent, the surge in new positions came from all parts of the UK rather than being concentrated in the traditionally more buoyant areas such as London and the south east.
A second boost for the UK economy came from credit reference agency Experian, which found that business insolvency rates in the UK have stayed steady for the first time since 2007, before the global financial crisis.
