Select Appointments welcomes upward employment trend


Feb 10, 2017

Select Appointments, a leading recruitment franchise business, has welcomed the latest ONS (Office for National Statistics) figures, which show that employment in the UK continues to rise and unemployment continues to fall.  These changes reflect the general direction of movement since late 2011 to early 2012.

The report also shows that for February to April 2015, 73.4% people aged from 16 to 64 were in work, up from 72.7% a year earlier, and the unemployment rate for February to April 2015 was 5.5% down from 6.6% for a year earlier.

Graeme McKinnon, managing director of Select Appointments, commented: “The upward trend in employment is to be welcomed.  The challenge for employers will be to source the right talent to fill the vacancies.   This is where the services of a professional recruitment consultant can be invaluable.”

He added: “The demand for employment services is rising and there has never been a better time to consider running your recruitment business.   Whether you are new to the sector or a seasoned veteran Select gives you the tools and support to succeed in this sector.”
