There has been another fluctuation in CRA jobs this week with a drop across both permanent and interim vacancies, totalling up to an overall 10% decline. This can largely be attributed to the tax year end looming making companies nervous about commencing recruitment. As a result we foresee jobs either hovering around current numbers or continuing to decline over the next three weeks.
