Adecco Job Watch: General Staffing down despite Olympics boost

Adecco Job Watch: General Staffing down despite Olympics boost

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

Overall General Staffing didn’t see the pick-up in vacancies it had anticipated from the Olympics with overall vacancies down nearly 10% on the permanent side. There was also a negative impact on retail with contract/temporary positions down by 19%.

Permanent engineering roles were down 86% and permanent telecoms roles were down 40%.

The banking, insurance and finance industry however had a generally positive month with a 7% general staffing increase for permanent roles.

Steven Kirkpatrick, Managing Director at Adecco UK Ltd said:  “Although there has been a recent dip in the retail sector, the sector is preparing for the start of the Christmas cycle. We anticipate an uplift driven by preparation in manufacturing and planning for the busiest time of the retail calendar. We are optimistic of a better quarter in store.”
