In Scotland, we found that despite Jan 2015 being a record-breaking month, permanent placements for construction professionals increased by a staggering 54% in Jan 2016. Whilst this appears to be ahead of the curve, we attribute this to a slower December and note that the availability of permanent staff could have an impact in the spring months. Whilst we saw the highest number of temporary workers take permanent jobs this month, we continue to attract new temporary workers – some who have left permanent jobs due to the confidence in the market and are keen to be specialists in their field. 2016, we’re excited about you!
