From the BBC Scotland website with only two wee ‘buts’, excised:
‘Scottish recruitment agencies have reported the sharpest rise in permanent staff appointments since July 2014. The latest Royal Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs found growth in placements outpaced the UK as a whole last month…..Meanwhile, job openings in Scotland continued to rise last month, with permanent vacancies increasing markedly and at the quickest pace in three months. Agencies also reported an increase in short-term vacancies at the end of the third quarter.’
I wonder, is that the first good news about business we’ve had recently. Let me check my records. Ah, only these:
Sorry, that’s all.
Footnote: You’ll not be surprised that there’s bad news to be found if you look for it. Employers are having to work harder to attract new staff and have to pay more to get them so that’s bad news clearly….unless you’re an employee?
