Today our client, the CIPD, have just launched their latest Labour Market Outlook report.
The report found that overall jobs growth is set to continue, while pay is expected to grow, but shows little sign of taking off.
According to the latest Labour Market Outlook, the proportion of employers that say they plan to hire more apprentices and school-leavers has increased sharply in response to recruitment difficulties since spring 2014. Up-skilling for all employees remains the most prevalent employer response to recruitment difficulties, cited by half of employers 50%) but a third (33%) of employers currently reporting hard-to-fill vacancies plan to hire more apprentices, a marked increase compared with just 22% in the spring 2014 report. Around a quarter (26%) predict recruiting graduates and twelve per cent plan to hire more school leavers, up by a third compared with the spring 2014 report (9%).
