Employment levels in the Central & East region increased by 34% between quarter four 2013 and quarter one 2014. That’s according to the latest contract and interim employment update from Venn Group.
Major retail organisations such as Amazon, Coca-Cola, River Island and Tesco have all relocated their distribution hubs to the region over the past few years and this ongoing inward investment is continuing to drive contractor hiring in the region. The recruiter has seen the most demand for supply chain finance support executives and management accountants.
Venn Group’s director of operations in the region, Avtar Singh, commented:
“The relocation by many blue-chip companies within the logistics space has really driven recruitment in the area over the past few years and we expect this to continue. Contractors will always be required to not only plug permanent skills gaps, but also oversee projects until completion. And with the news that Waitrose is to open its first national distribution centre in the area next year, we expect demand to remain high.
“Elsewhere, public sector hiring has remained buoyant with much of the demand being for administrative workers to help service the traditionally busy period approaching financial year end.”
Venn Group – The UK’s only company dedicated to the provision of professional contract and interim staff to organisations in both the private and public sectors – compared hiring levels between quarter four 2013 and quarter one 2014 across all of its core regions:
