Summary of the latest report

The latest Report on Jobs signalled a solid increase in demand for healthcare staff, both on a permanent and a temporary basis midway through the third quarter of the year. However, in August overall permanent billings decreased, which happens this month due to holidays. Temp billings also declined for the first time in three years. Our data shows pay pressures remain sharp for permanent workers and temp wages also increased across all four English regions, with London seeing by far the steepest rate of pay inflation, and in Scotland. This is partly because of a shortage of labour with specific skills. Demand for both permanent and temporary staff increased during August but temp staff demand expanded at a solid pace. Moreover, labour supply also increased during August for permanent and temp staff.
