Number of temporary workers decreases over the year

 

Latest labour market statistics published by the ONS reveals a low employment rate, however, the number of temporary workers in the UK saw a slight fall.

According to the figures, the number of temporary workers decreased by 2.55% - there are now a total of 5.5% in temporary employment, down from 5.7% compared to the previous year.

Commenting on the ONS results as a whole, ONS Head of Labour Market David Freeman said, “The number of people working grew again, with the share of the population in work now the highest on record. Meanwhile, the share of the workforce looking for work and unable to find it remains at its lowest for over 40 years, helped by a record number of job vacancies.” 

“Wage growth continues to outpace inflation, which fell back slightly in the latest month.”

Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) director of policy Tom Hadley, said, “Reassuring people from the EU working across a range of sectors in the UK must remain a priority, with yesterday’s announcement by the Prime Minister to scrap EU citizens’ settled status fee sending out a much needed positive message.

“However the politics play out over the coming weeks and months, employers will need to continue innovating in how they hire and attract staff to fill vacancies. 

“Recruitment professionals will play a pivotal role in finding new ways of meeting workforce challenges in high-demand sectors, ranging from engineering and healthcare to hospitality, construction and logistics.”
