The private sector remained the principal engine of job creation. Also the average starting salaries for people placed in permanent jobs continued to rise strongly in July, only fractionally below June’s survey-record high.
Construction workers were the most in-demand type of permanent employee during the latest survey period, closely followed by engineering staff. But as the overall demand for workers is high, there are job chances in all types of jobs.
