Local Employment Update
Posted: 22nd March 2016
As the team at August Clarke strives to provide the right Accountancy staff for our local clients, we are delighted to hear that there has been a considerable drop in the number of people claiming job seekers allowance in 2016 compared with 2015.
Locally Southampton has seen a fall of 1,243 people on job seekers in the March 2016 alone and across the South East 3,227 have come off the dole within the last month.
This has coincied with a drop in redundancies and unfilled vacancies during the last quarter. All of these factors the employment market as a whole is looking rosy for local employers.
August Clarke has also seen an increase in new vacancies with positions available across all salary levels from Accounts Administrator to Financial Controller level. Please contact our team today to discuss our current requirements or discuss a your current recruitment needs.
