In a survey completed by recruiter CV Screen it was revealed that the number of job applications had risen by 14 percent with the number of applications per job advert now averaging an impressive 114.
CV Screen Director Matthew Iveson commented “we have seen more roles put on hold in Q1 than in any quarter for the last number of years as employers adopt a wait and see approach. This trend is likely to continue until after the June referendum.”
Across the three main recruitment divisions at CV Screen (IT, Marketing and Digital and Accountancy and Finance) there have been a number of areas which continue to see high demand.
“We continue to see high demand for those with Web & Software Development skills and also those with strong Digital Marketing experience,” Iveson continued.
