Oakleaf sees vacancy increases MoM in commerce and financial services
Oakleaf has reported that from April to May 2016, total vacancies registered with it remained constant.
It says there were significant increases in vacancies from both commerce (23% increase) and financial services (10% increase).
Meanwhile roles registered from professional services firms decreased some 31% and not-for-profit decreased 29%, the company found. The number of new vacancies overall for May is slightly down on the 5-month average and down 7 % on the last 6 months’ average for 2015 – perhaps reflecting caution in hiring managers ahead of the referendum.
The largest number of roles (38%) in May were for generalists/HRBPs, Oakleaf says. Recruitment reflected 17% of the roles. Meanwhile, learning and development, still a skill set in demand, had seen a drop in the number of new vacancies since January and represented just 7% of roles in May.
Roles by salary level were evenly split between the ‘up to £49,999’ category and ‘from £50,000 to £99,999’.
