Job Creation up but Skills are in Short Supply

JOB CREATION remained strong last month, but a skills shortage could be looming on the horizon.

JOB CREATION remained strong last month, but a skills shortage could be looming on the horizon.

A report released today by consultancy giant KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (Rec) showed that permanent staff placements rose for the 25th consecutive month in October.

Meanwhile, another KPMG report warned that a huge skills shortage in the construction sector could hinder infrastructure plans – especially in London and the south east.

One reason for the skills shortage was the lack of investment in training during the recession. How­ever, job creation is rising and not just in London – the fastest increase was recorded in the Midlands.
