Scotland’s job market continues to improve


Scotland’s job market is improving, with more vacancies and increasing pay, according to a Bank of Scotland report.

June also saw the strongest rise in the number of people appointed to permanent positions in almost six years, the bank said.

Aberdeen experienced the largest increase in posts filled while Dundee saw a rise in people taking up temporary jobs.

The market snapshot provided by the bank’s Labour Market Barometer showed that average pay also increased at the sharpest pace for almost six years, and at a faster rate than the UK average.

Permanent salaries and hourly pay in temporary posts increased at the strongest rates in Edinburgh and Dundee.
