Job Market Report – REC and KPMG February 2019

This report is compiled from responses to questionnaires sent to a panel of around 400 UK recruitment and employment consultancies (including the Ten Percent Group).

Main Findings:
Permanent placements fall for first time in two-and-a-half-years
Vacancy growth edges down to 27-month low
Sharper fall in candidate availability leads to further increases in starting pay.

Comments from KPMG as follows:
“With Brexit just days away now, it’s definitely a nervous time for recruiters. January marked the first fall in permanent staff appointments since the referendum and we’ve seen a sharp decline in the number of candidates entering the jobs market. This is pushing up starting salaries at historically strong rates. Both employers and employees are in ‘wait and see mode’ now and there is little reason to believe the brakes will come off the jobs market before we find out what sort of Brexit the UK is about to experience. The majority of sectors across the UK economy are now more cautious, and hiring more slowly than they were 12 months ago. Nationally the number of permanent staff appointments has fallen considerably in the North region, Midlands region and London. The exception is the Southern region where the number of permanent staff appointments continues to grow, albeit more slowly.”

Charity Donations – £10,700 donated in February 2019

The Ten Percent Foundation is our charitable trust distributing our donations to the chosen charities each year since 2003. You can read all about us at

At our recent trustees meeting we decided to donate for 2019 as follows:

The First Step (domestic violence charity on Merseyside) – £2,500
Centre 63 (youth centre in Kirkby, Merseyside) – £2,500
Kilimatinde Trust (Tanzania school – supporting 4 students) – £2,200
British Stammering Association (supporting a helpline) – £2,000
Cure Parkinsons Trust – £1,000
Reprieve – £500
Total amount: £10,700.

This is the final set of donations to The First Step, Centre 63, Kilimatinde Trust and the British Stammering Association, in a 5 year plan to support ongoing projects. In total we have donated £12,500 to The First Step, £12,500 to Centre 63, £11,000 to the Kilimatinde Trust and £10,000 to the British Stammering Association. Jonathan Fagan, MD of Limited and a trustee of the Ten Percent Foundation said “its been a pleasure to support a number of charities for a period of years, but the trustees feel its now time to move onto new projects. We have been able to contribute to specific projects for charities with our 5 year commitment plan. We hope we encourage other companies, preferably bigger than ourselves, to undertake similar commitments to donate profits to charity.”
