Record low unemployment has several UK firms feeling the challenge of finding workers. The health and hospitality sectors are especially scrambling for employees to fill open positions. Last month, 832,000 job vacancies were posted according to the Office for National Statistics, which is an increase of 62,000 from a year ago. Of the vacancies, 95,000 were in the hotel and food industries and a record 130,000 were in health and social fields.

According to Ian Brinkley, the chief economist at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, with unemployment being at record low levels, workers have more choices as to where they want to work, which in turn leaves employers short of enough workers. “This is a very dynamic labor market, so you are bound to see high numbers of vacancies as more people are moving,” said Brinkley. Samuel Tombs, a UK economist, said that with job vacancies rising to a record high and surplus labor extremely scarce, workers are having greater success in receiving above-inflation pay raises. The average weekly wages rose by 3.4 percent in the year to December 2018. JobsAWorld has a team of career development experts dedicated to helping you get hired for the perfect position.
