The latest Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs indicated a further loss of momentum for the Scottish labour market in July.
Demand for staff increased at a weaker rate, while Scottish recruiters placed fewer people into permanent work and saw only a moderate rise in temp staff billings. Concurrently, average salaries paid to permanent staff fell for the second month running and to the greatest extent since September 2010.
Regionally, permanent placements fell to the greatest extent in Dundee, while Edinburgh was the only region to post a reduction in temp staff billings in July. Glasgow-based recruitment agencies posted the strongest deterioration in permanent staff availability. Job consultancies in Dundee reported the fastest rate of decline in the number of candidates seeking temporary work.
