Rise in permanent and temporary placements for Scots

In positive news for the labour market in Scotland, figures have shown that last month there was an increase in the number of permanent and temporary work placements.

After a fall in February, the statistics from a report by the Bank of Scotland compiled by Markit revealed that recruitment firms in Aberdeen saw the strongest boost in the number of permanent placements, while Edinburgh took the crown for the most temporary assignments.

Permanent appointments performed best out of the two forms of employment and salaries for these positions also experienced a surge, compared to no change recorded for the previous month.

The Labour Market Barometer by the bank indicating the state of conditions came in at 53.0 for March, which showed not only an overall improvement, but also a faster rate of growth. In February, the index had returned a reading of 51.2, which was a seven-month low.
