UK Job Vacancies at record high

With the number of UK job vacancies at a record high, some industries are reporting difficulties in recruiting new staff. A lack of EU applicants is contributing to recruitment challenges, particularly in transport and storage.

Hospitality businesses are more than twice as likely as other to be experiencing challenges in filling vacancies compared with normal expectations.

Vacancy challenges are more common for larger businesses. Excluding those with fewer than 10 employees, 41% of businesses across all industries were struggling to fill vacancies in late August, up from 32% earlier in the month.
