It's good news for recruitment consultants as the Monster Job Index recorded an 11% year-on-year increase in online job demand.
Strongest growth was in Transport & Logistics, IT and Marketing, PR & Media. Sadly, the Banking & Finance sector slipped into decline, reflecting ongoing uncertainty surrounding the industry. So spare a thought for the poor bankers!
There was a slight slowdown in growth during December, which may have been caused by the weather, but could also mean that employers are holding on to see how 2011 shapes up before committing to new recruitment.
If that's true, expect to see continued growth as those jobs are advertised in the early part of the year.
