Staff Appointments:

Permanent placements fall to a steeper degree:

Permanent staff appointments in the UK continued to decline in June, stretching the current downturn to 21 months. Moreover, the rate of contraction accelerated since May to the steepest for three months. Panellists commented on a lack of demand for candidates, driven in part by general election uncertainty which was reported to have acted as a brake on recruitment activity. Reduced placements were seen across England, albeit to varying degrees. The steepest fall was seen in the South of England, whilst only a marginal reduction was
registered in the Midlands.

Slight increase in temporary staff placements registered:

A return to growth of temp billings was signalled in June. Although only marginal, it was the first increase in temp billings registered by the survey since last October.
Panellists noted that additional staff were being taken on in line with higher activity requirements at clients. Growth in temp billings was seen in the Midlands and North of England. In contrast, declines continued to be reported in the South of England and London.
