Job vacancies update - 30-APR-2009
We're back for this week's thrilling job vacancies update. The graph above shows how many jobs have been listed on reed.co.uk and the Job Centre Plus websites. And the graph below shows some kind of extrapolated level of job vacancies for the entire UK, based on what Gordon Brown said a few months ago and how the levels on the previous websites have fluctated.
The goodish news is that its kind of levelled out at around 400,000 job vacancies in the UK, which must be very gratifying for the 2.5 million unemployed folk in the UK, me included.
The top job sectors for vacancies according to Reed are Temping, Management and Sales.
But from studiously studying the rest of the sectors, it looks like the ones showing most growth are still Actuarial, Motoring and Automotive, FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods), and now Leisure and Tourism.
Good luck, and if this has been any help to you, let me know.
Hopefully by next week I'll be able to give you graphs and stuff about the best regions in the UK for jobs. Until then.
