Following a dismal period for the job market in the UK, a phenomenal increase in employment opportunities is expected. These findings have been highlighted in a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and The Adecco Group report titled, the Labour Market Outlook. After conducting a survey of 2,000 employers, the report asserts that in the first quarter, the share of employers who are seeking to recruit would rise to 56 percent. Meanwhile, the survey also shows that the net employment intentions figure, which measures the difference between the proportion of employers intending to increase jobs and those planning to decrease them, “rose to +11 this quarter.” This increase is higher than the growth in previous quarters.
As unprecedented changes are now expected and the economic growth forecasts gain momentum, there is a need to access the job market in the UK. Moreover, reports need to be accessed in the context of the effect of the pandemic and the changing unemployment rates in the UK.
