KPMG & REC Report on Jobs December 2021

"This month's survey reflects the trend seen for some months. That vacancies continue to be created but the shortages of talent remain.

"We expect that to continue for as long as there is uncertainty around Covid restrictions and being allowed to work more flexibly.

"Renewed encouragement from the government to work from home again means those looking for work will at least find it easier to do so. And whilst salaries continue to increase due to the demand, you can expect any unhappy people who work for your organisation to be looking for alternative employment.

"As for recruiters grumbling online about the shortage of candidates to fill client vacancies? This has never been a better time to be a great, experienced recruiter.
At Clarity, we continue to find people for those hard-to-fill jobs and expect this to continue for the foreseeable future."
