June Recruitment Survey Results

The results of the June Recruitment Survey from KPMG, contributed to locally by Badger Associates are in…..

The results show the slowest rise in permanent placements for over two years with temp billings growth moderates to eight-month low. However recruiters signal ongoing candidate shortages.

 The number of executive and specialist candidates looking for new roles fell considerably in June. This has slowed recruitment activity in the month and this slowdown is likely to be exacerbated as we approach the holiday season.  This growing skills shortage is cross sector and cross discipline: recruiters are struggling to fill vacancies for everything from software engineers to sales. The lack of qualified candidates is also driving up salaries, with the right individual able to command a significant premium from businesses anxious to secure their skills and experience.

The primary concern remains the impact this unwanted pause in recruitment will have on the performance and productivity of client companies. Without the right staff it will be very difficult for businesses to keep pace with demand, let alone achieve their long term growth potential.
