Hays UK Salary & Recruiting Trends 2016

Hays Salary Guide 2016 image.jpg

We speak to thousands of employers and jobseekers every day, so we know how important it is for businesses to recruit and retain the right people to ensure continued growth. The range and depth of our knowledge allows us to present meaningful insight into the factors impacting the UK recruitment market.

We present the most comprehensive analysis of salary, benefits and employment data across the key sectors and professions for which we recruit, including; Accountancy, Construction, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Insurance, Information Technology, Legal, Marketing, Office Support, Procurement, Property and Supply Chain.

Recruitment activity has spread across all sectors and geographies. The competition for talent is severe in places, marked by job seekers receiving multiple job offers and counter offers from their current employer. This is prevalent in skill short sectors such as IT and construction, but is increasingly becoming the norm elsewhere.

Looking forward, investment in training and development will be a crucial part of recruitment and retention strategies. With 59% of employees telling us they will change jobs in the year ahead, employers who can offer competitive remuneration packages, clear career progression paths and a range of flexible options will be best placed to source the key skills they will need to maximise growth. However, the underlying skills gap will remain a challenge for many businesses for the foreseeable future.

Within the Hays UK Salary & Recruiting Trends 2016 report we provide regional salary data for a broad range of professions, accompanied by detailed commentary on conditions affecting the recruitment market in key sectors.
