There are currently labour shortages across the UK, making it an opportune time to find a new job. According to recent research, job postings on a major job board have risen by 39% from this time last year. Part of this has been down to an exodus of older people from the job market following the pandemic.
Just under 29.5 million people are currently on payrolls, and the number of vacancies is at an all-time high. Nonetheless, pay growth is lagging behind inflation, so if you feel you’re stuck on a low salary, now is a good time to jump ship.
