Here's your regular update of what things are like on the UK job vacancies scene.
Reed.co.uk lists around 102,000 vacancies, which means there's about 410,000 job vacancies in the UK. The Job Centre Plus website's figure varies during the day, so it's hard to track accurately, an Excel trendline has it sloping downwards at about the same rate as the Reed line. The number of jobs falls about about 2% each week.
This graph shows the state of the top couple of sectors / job types on Reed. We can see that now Temp jobs have started to drift downwards. Graduate job vacancies continue to fall, below that of Financial services who have had a little rise of the past few days.
Chris Gilmour, author of groundbreaking attack blog IllandAncient, said "If you really want to check out job sectors where there are increasing numbers of vacancies, try Actuarial and Automotive which have been rising by 20% and 5% week since a week ago".
