Reed Group sees 8% increase in job adverts since Brexit

The Chairman of recruitment company, the Reed Group, says that 150k more jobs were added to their website compared to the same period last year. This represents an 8% increase over last year.

Research by Reed Group shows that 83% of firms have no plans to freeze recruitment following the Leave vote in the EU referendum and for most it is business as usual. The research doesn't appear to say whether this is more or less than before the referendum but if it was more it would have been headline news given that James Reed supported the Remain campaign.

Reed expects the weaker pound to increase jobs in tourism and hospitality and says that jobs growth is across all sectors.
