A rise in permanent jobs in the North
A report published by KPMG showed that the number of people being appointed permanent jobs in the North of England has increased for the fourth month in December. The rate of growth is the fastest since March 2010 and permanent salaries in the North have also rose for the tenth successive month during December.
Jonathan Hurst, Northern chairman of KPMG, said: "The North continues to lead the recovery in the wider UK jobs market, illustrating the resilience and entrepreneurial outlook of Northern employers. We expect this solid growth to continue - although it may be at a slower rate - in the North and nationally as the economic picture becomes clearer."
The original data has been compiled from the survey of recruitment and employment consultants in the North of England, read David McCourt’s full report here. KPMG
