The KPMG/REC latest report on jobs released

The latest KPMG/REC Report on Jobs has been released and it makes very positive reading for the clinical science sectors. The pace of growth of permanent vacancies has continued with the increase nearly back to the same number as February’s record figures. The rise in temporary vacancies within the clinical field also has been dramatic, and while not as strong as the permanent side, there is still continued growth. The increased demand for permanent  staff  is a sign of the growing confidence employers have in the current market as are investing heavily in additional resources.

The report reflects what CK Clinical are seeing in the day to day job market with the decline in candidate availability and the fastest growth in permanent salaries since July 2007. As a consequence we are starting to see permanent salaries for clinical specialists rising above inflation rates for the first time in over 5 years. This is what we have needed in the clinical field to help attract new talent into the industry whilst retaining the highly skilled specialists in this field.

The clinical sector is among the fastest growing sectors in the economy, slightly behind science and engineering which is great news for our industry.

REC bid for International STEM students

The House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee has published a report on International STEM students which has included recommendations made by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.

Recommendations made by the REC were based on evidence they had collected which highlighted the struggle to fill key, in-demand STEM positions across the UK, traditional filled by international candidates.  The change in international student VISA’s has seen far fewer applicants for specialist STEM positions resulting in vital skills gaps. The desperate need for a wider pool of talent to ensure UK businesses can continue to forge ahead formed the basis of the REC’s recent advice to the House of Lords.

The recommendations, which included the reinstatement of the Post Study Route, are being considered so the struggle to fill specialist STEM jobs may soon be over.
