Scottish job market weakens
18 October 2010
The Scottish labour market remained challenging in September. This was especially the case for candidates seeking permanent job roles, as the latest data from the Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs indicated further falls in vacancies and average salaries. Moreover, the number of people placed in permanent job roles fell at the sharpest rate in thirteen months. In contrast, the Scottish temporary job market remained in a healthier state with the growth in demand for short-term employees remaining robust.
