Jobs Recovery Tracker

Research

In May 2020 the REC launched the Jobs Recovery Tracker, which aims to help recruiters, businesses, and policymakers see how the jobs market is evolving as the economy recovers from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This research uses job postings data, provided by our partner Emsi, to spot signs of growth in different local areas and occupations across the UK. We will be updating this data regularly during the coming months to show where the hiring hotspots are, and what job roles are in high demand.

The latest Jobs Recovery Tracker reveals that there were 235,000 new job adverts posted in the week of 4-10 October 2021, giving a total of 2.29 million active job adverts in the UK. The total number of active job postings in the UK has increased by over 600,000 (36%) since the last week of August.

Use the interactive visualisations below to explore the latest data from the Jobs Recovery Tracker.
