UK Salaries Stay Flat, While Vacancies Fall Again
Several months of declining numbers of vacancies could be coming to an end in the run up to Christmas, according to the Adzuna Job Vacancy Index. With a 0.4% month on month decline in October, slowing from 1.4% the month before, there’s chance for a late upswing before the quiet period.
Oxford has caught back up with Swindon to be at the top of places where it is easiest to find a job. There are nearly 20 vacancies per jobseeker in these two places. In sharp contrast, and as predicted last month, Hull is currently the worst place to look for a job, overtaking Sunderland. Sunderland has seen a reasonable improvement, and could tumble even below regional rivals Middlesbrough.
