Adecco Job Watch: General Staffing Bucking the trend in a Challenging Market

Adecco Job Watch: General Staffing Bucking the trend in a Challenging Market

Numbers of permanent and temporary roles advertised during July were significantly down according to data from Adecco Retail.

All sectors suffered a decrease in advertised vacancies with the exception of General Staffing* which is bucking the negative trend with an extremely positive showing on the permanent side with vacancies up this month by 12.29%.

The figures showed that the Banking, Insurance and Finance sector of General Staffing was the key benefactor with increases on both the permanent and temporary side (up 1.99% permanent up 0.71% temporary).

Steven Kirkpatrick, Managing Director at Adecco UK Ltd said:

“The Olympics have had a negative impact on the retail sector and general staffing jobs within the retail sector have taken a hit. Now that the Olympic Games have passed, and after the August summer holiday period, we expect many businesses to increase head count, and we expect to see job numbers in the retail market pick up in September”.
