Key points from the IHS Markit and REC October survey: 
• Permanent placements rise solidly after slight dip in September
• Candidate availability continues to fall sharply
• Pay pressures ease slightly but remain marked

Commenting on the latest survey results, Kevin Green, REC chief executive says: “Last month, recruiters helped even more people find permanent jobs – this is great news as it shows that employers are continuing to hire. However, the data also shows that growth is slowing down and one of the reasons is that we simply do not have enough people for all the roles that are out there at the moment. And the number of vacancies is still getting higher.   “For jobseekers this is good news as employers are willing to pay higher starting wages to attract the right candidates. “We already know that EU workers are leaving because of the uncertainties they are facing right now. We therefore need clarity around what future immigration systems will look like. Otherwise, the situation will get worse and employers will face even more staff shortages.”
