Latest findings have revealed that despite the Brexit deadline looming, professional employment across London is continuing to see significant growth.
The latest data, compiled by the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), based on research undertaken by Vacancysoft, found that the technology sector is the largest and fastest growing, recording a significant 44% increase in hiring activity year-on-year.
Given this, it’s no surprise that demand for IT professionals increased by 25% year-on-year, forming 37% of all advertised positions.
With the rise in hiring activity across several sectors, growth in demand was also significant for HR professionals, where placements increased by 33%.
Vacancies for B2B business development & sales professionals also increased by 37%, accounting for 6% of all professional vacancies.
Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT) meanwhile saw a 32% rise in demand for talent. As BBC, Sky and Facebook all hold positions in the top 20 companies for hiring in London, this is unsurprising.
