Permanent salaries rose at their fastest rate since December 2007 last month, with the IT sector among the industries showing the most wage growth, according to the monthly Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG Report on Jobs.
There was a sharper increase in salaries as candidate availability deteriorated further, says the report, with overall vacancies rising at their sharpest rate in over six years.
Overall demand for staff rose at the fastest pace since June 2007, and higher vacancy levels were seen for both permanent and temporary workers, in both the public and private sectors and across all nine monitored industry categories.
Overall, the strongest demand for permanent staff was seen for engineering workers, followed by construction staff and then IT and computing employees.
The key job areas in high demand in IT and computing were business analysts, developers, digital marketing, infrastructure, Java, PHP, SAP and support.
