Analysis of almost 8 million job postings has highlighted the extent of Britain’s recession in 2009, clearly naming the winners and losers of the recruiting industries.
The latest report discusses data on
the number of jobs distributed by Adcourier to its (circa) 1,100 job
boards during the 2009 calendar year. The report is broken down by sector, providing details on how individual industries like IT, Financial Services and graduate recruitment performed during the recession.
With the Chartered Institute of Personnel and
Development (CIPD) reporting that 1.31 million people were made
redundant during the recession it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that overall the number of adverts posted by Broadbean clients in 2009 fell by 32.2% when compared to 2008.
As house building slumped under
the impact of the credit crunch, the Building & Construction industry saw a 67.8% decrease in the numbers of jobs posted when comparing 2009 to 2008, marking it as the worst hit industry of the year.
In contrast Not For Profit industries saw a significant overall
increase in job opportunities being advertised. In particular the Social Care industry saw an unprecedented rise following a huge Government recruitment campaign for Social Workers.
Not For Profit industry
postings were most notable for their stability month on month having fewer peaks and troughs than any other industry. Purchasing & Procurement appeared almost as stable despite a slight decline. http://lu.mu/09bbreport
