Econintersect:  The Monster Employment Index UK saw fourth consecutive month in online recruiting ads.  This is in sharp contrast to the Monster index for Europe, reported last monster-logoweek where the same four months have recorded contraction for the entire European region.  The only other country showing a gain for November from a year ago was Belgium.  Even Germany which has been the economic strongman was down inNovember.  All measurements are made on a year-over-year basis so seasonality factors are essentially eliminated from the results.

Follow up:

Here is the summary from Monster Worldwide:

  • The Monster Employment Index UK reports an annual increase of one percent, continuing the positive growth trend initiated in August
  • Public sector, defence and community continues to lead all industry sectors by measure of annual growth in November
  • Banking, finance and insurance is the weakest performing sector year-over-year, extending the negative trend to a 22nd consecutive month
  • Annual online hiring for Skilled agricultural, forestry and fishery workers rises at the fastest rate among all occupation groups in November
  • Of the regions measured by the Index, the Midlands notes the strongest year-over-year uptick with the region noting its most robust growth rate in six months

According to Julian Acquari, Managing Director of Monster UK & Ireland:

“November’s Index reports increased hiring for almost half of all industries as we enter into the fourth consecutive month of overall annual growth.  Engineering continues to be a power-house of hiring growth among industry sectors, and healthcare also charted strong annual growth in November.”
