The chronic shortage of staff in our sector is showing signs of easing, according to a report from the IMI.
A slight drop off in the number of vacancies advertised in the past month was noted in a report. However, the same document warns against complacency as YoY vacancy number are around a third higher.
The report (which you can read here) also notes that advertised salaries are up in some cases by over 10 percent YoY with advertised salaries for tyre, exhaust and windscreen fitters up 21 percent over the past three years, although these were starting from a low base.
“While overheated salary expectations can put pressure on employers, they’re also obviously a positive for individuals”, noted Emma Carrigy , Research and Insight Manager from the IMI.
