April and June Market Analysis – What are the Results?


Over the past two months, Broadbean technology have been calculating the latest figures from their global Recruitment Market Analysis from April and June.

With data collected from across 48 sectors for both of these months, the gap between the results aren’t significantly big despite the two month gap. There is a 3% difference in year on year vacancies though, with April’s permanent jobs standing at 9.4% while June’s decreased to 6.5%.

April Analysis:


Despite the fall, the sectors that are growing in the quarterly review for April are Transport and Rail with +27% in the permanent division along with a +105% growth for temporary jobs for Graduates and Trainees.

Education and Training is the top sector in June for permanent jobs standing at 34%. For both months, Automotive had strong results in both the permanent and temporary sectors. April saw +46% growth whereas June saw a growth of 51% and demands for candidates in the industry saw vacancies grow 50.5% over the quarter.

April’s results for applications came in at a decrease at 1.3% but good news for June. In the two months, an increase of 2.7% took the number of applications per vacancy to 4.0%.

The great news is that, while there is a decrease in permanent jobs and despite that fall, the industry can very well get back on its horse and grow once again. And it’s also great news for Graduates and Trainees at last!

June Analysis:


So while you ponder over these results, let’s wait to see what August’s results will brings to the industry!
