Recruitment Up but still below pre-Covid Levels

We are three weeks in to lock down and it's easy to be disheartened by the barrage of negative media out there but if you can filter out the doom and gloom you quickly see signs of recovery 'despite' Covid-19. 

Latest figures show recruitment is up, with 37% of businesses trying to recruit in this quarter. A marked improvement from the historic lows of Q2's 25%. The British Chambers of Commerce found sectors such as contruction and transportation/distribution were performing particularly well. 

Schemes like the recently launched Kickstart Scheme will also provide a much needed boost for employers over the coming months and we aim to play our part in the recovery too.
