UK job levels rise significantly pay rises marginally
2010 saw significant increases in job levels and marginal increases in pay, according to the Robert Walters Global Salary Survey, released this week.
The Survey reveals that FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies hired in significantly higher volumes and investment banks were far more active than in 2009.
Chris Hickey, Managing Director of UK Recruitment at Robert Walters, comments:
Competition for the best talent was a key theme throughout the year talented people who looked for new jobs often received a number of offers, while employers fought hard to retain their best staff. Although our research reveals only slight increases to the majority of salaries, some professionals with niche in-demand skill sets received increases of up to 30%.Recruitment activity was up in all sectors across each of our disciplines and in some isolated areas such as IT and compliance even returned to pre-recession levels at times during the year. Firms particularly focused on recruiting for growth-focused roles, rather than those that were geared towards managing the bottom line, as they looked to take advantage of improving market conditions.
