Salary rises driven by skills and talent shortages, says REC @cipdlondon @cmi_managers #HR #Law

CIPD: “The rate of average starting salaries is at its highest level for six months with almost a third of recruiters reporting that the pay they’re offering new hires is higher than last month, a pay survey has revealed. Pay growth was especially strong in the Midlands and the south, where 35 per cent and 37 per cent of recruiters, respectively, report higher starting salaries, according to the latest Job Report from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG.

Candidate availability has continued to fall with teaching and nursing skills in particularly short supply.This follows recent calls from the National Union of Teachers to restore national pay scales, to encourage more teachers into the profession”.
