Manpower Employment Outlook Survey UK Q4 2015

Source: ManPowerGroup

From Press Release:

The UK jobs market stands at its least optimistic level in three years, according to ManpowerGroup, the world’s workforce experts. After three consecutive quarters at +6%, job prospects are dwindling in the run up to Christmas and have reached their weakest point since the final quarter of 2012. The national Seasonally Adjusted Net Employment Outlook has dropped two percentage points to +4%....

ManpowerGroup’s data suggests employers are already feeling the impact of the National Living Wage, scaling back their recruitment plans in the fourth quarter of 2015. The policy will see six million people receive a 6% pay rise each year until 2020, but the Office for Budget Responsibility estimates that the extra costs could mean up to 60,000 job losses.
