The Report on Jobs is a monthly publication produced by IHS Markit and sponsored by KPMG and REC.

Fortunately, the job stats from June are a good sign that the initial shock is behind us. It is, however, going to take some time to rebuild confidence.

Of course, the uncertainty around COVID-19 will be something we are going to need to contend with for a while, but I am confident that there will still be opportunities out there for candidates while the UK jobs market re-builds.

Recruiters will play a pivotal role in helping people who find themselves in the job market find new opportunities. – John Mackey, Managing Partner | FJR Executive.
