Manufacturing skills in high demand

(2 minutes to read)

Latest findings have revealed positive news about the jobs market, as it has shown continued growth throughout the previous month.

Recent research from shows that the jobs market is up 7% compared to this time last year, with both manufacturing and retail driving this increased growth, rising by 21% and 22% respectively.

James Reed, chairman of, commented on the latest survey, “It’s encouraging to see that more jobs are being created in manufacturing, as it has such a positive effect on the wider economy.

“As we produce more goods, the benefits ripple out into supply chains and the gains are felt amongst the wider workforce.

“Our data supports recent findings from both the manufacturers’ organisation, the EEF, and the manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI), both of which point to a renewed confidence in the sector following a dip after the Brexit vote, particularly amongst exporters.

“But whilst this growth is encouraging, it is also fragile and will only be sustained by ensuring British businesses get the best possible access to the single market, so we can continue to sell competitively to a market of 500 million consumers.”
