Gold Group supports REC’s findings on increase in demand for IT, Construction and Engineering professionals
The REC’s monthly & lsquo;Report on Jobs’ for May has found that there has been an increase in the demand for professionals that Gold Group supply on both a permanent and contract basis. The May report shows a few key facts that Gold Group can support as a result of their own experience.
Foremost amongst the RECs conclusions is the fact that IT, Engineering and Construction have all shown the fastest increase in demand across all sectors. It also shows that this growth is in contrast to most other markets, which have seen a slight fall in demand.
Kevin Green, Chief Executive of REC, also points out that whilst the contract market has been contracting over the last six months those same three sectors have offered consistent growth throughout that time.
Gold Group can support the REC’s findings. Over the first six months of 2012, Gold Group has seen its volume of contractors increase significantly, as has demand from the sectors in question.
Tom Puffett, Owner and Managing Director of Gold Group, comments, & lsquo;Since January we have increased contractor placements significantly, which has come as a direct result of demand from our clients. We have seen a significant influx of permanent and contract placements in all three sectors highlighted in the REC report, particularly IT and Engineering. Demand is such that we have increased the number of staff in those teams to support all of our clients within those markets.’
