Employment is Booming


Despite gloomy predictions early in the year, employment is still booming according to the latest Job Creation Index (JCI).

Latest figures show that over 65,000 jobs were created across the UK’s 21 key industries in June hitting a peak for job creation in 2005.

This month’s top industries are vehicles and parts and food and drink. Major vehicles and parts companies have conducted a large-scale recruitment drive, only months after a high number of redundancies at Rover. During June 11,919 jobs were created in this sector alone, according to the market data.

Media and marketing and printing and paper fared less well, showing the greatest reductions in June.

Ray Murphy of Mandis, the company behind the JCI, said: "Despite recent anxieties about the outlook for certain parts of the economy, a review of JCI Index data for the six months January to June 2005, shows the creation of 285,912 new jobs. This represents a 16% increase compared to the same period in 2004 when the total was 246.925 jobs“.

The Mandis/Adecco Job Creation Index is the ongoing monthly tracker of UK jobs created across 500 leading UK organisations in 21 industries.
