In the Summertime.....

It is expected that employment rates will reach unprecedented levels this summer, in turn leading to a positive impact on the recruitment market.

As reported by the Guardian, Britain’s employment rate reached momentous levels in March, even despite the uncertainty within the country surrounding the EU referendum in June 2016.

Since February both employment and total pay, including bonuses, have risen. According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of candidates employed rose by 44,000 to 31.58 million, while total pay saw a hike of 2%.

This rise is set to continue into the summer thanks to a number of considerable factors, such as sporting events, which will require SMEs to take on additional staff to keep up with increased customer demand.

The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Stephen Crabb said the following:

“These are another record-breaking set of figures, with more people in work than ever before and the unemployment rate is the lowest in a decade at 5.1%.More people in work means that more families across the UK are benefiting from the security of a regular wage and the fulfilment that employment brings.”

The official figures also show that there are 26.2 million people employed in the private sector, which is 575,000 more than last year, while the level of people not in work and not looking for employment is at a record low of 21.7%.

One thing’s for sure: these advances in levels of recruitment will continue to rise. Exactly how much may rest on the fortunes of the nation’s sporting competitors, particularly England’s progression in the 2016 UEFA European Championship – the further they go, the more SMEs will need to bring in more short-term staff members.

"I found Juice Personnel and their staff to be extremely helpful with my job search. I was kept fully updated on any changes to my application and on any other potential vacancies. I have recommended Juice to friends colleagues and would recommend their services again. Great team of people."

Kirsty Hewson - Long term temporary worker

"“Juice Personnel is a great agency made up of dedicated and friendly staff. I highly regard their professional opinions and found them very helpful in supporting my search for a new role and will be recommending them to all my friends and family.""

"I have known and used Agency drivers through Lynn for about 10 years. I have found Lynn to be honest and trust worthy, if Lynn could not cover a slot that we needed she would say from the off and not keep us hanging around. We have all drivers assessed before they can drive one of our vehicles and this is an area where Lynn has always been good for us. She has always kept new drivers coming for assessment so we did not run short of drivers. We used to have up to 20 drivers a day, over 24 hours, seven days a week. I have used several agencies over the past few years and Lynn (Juice) has been one of the best and still is. Lynn has always given us a reliable service. So, if it's a reliable service that you are looking for, ring Lynn Mortimer and the team at Juice. "

"All I can say is my experience with Juice Personnel was friendly and proficient. In no time at all I was set up for interviews that suited my capabilities and requirements. All communication was both helpful and timely with a very polite manner. If I ever needed an agency again, I would be contacting Juice Personnel."

Anthony Matthews - Placed in a permanent position

"I found juice personnel extremely friendly and professional and made my job search a much more relaxed experience. Regular feedback and contact made me feel that I was really been looked after, and would definitely recommend them to friends and would use them again for a new job search and for recruiting in my role. Plus the girls were lovely!!!! Emma "

Emma Antsey - Placed in a permanent position

"I have worked for several different agencies in my working life and Juice Personnel is in my opinion the friendliest and most helpful team of people I have come across. They go out of their way to help and support their clients. I would happily recommend them. I am excited about my new journey that I didn't feel was possible. I mean every word of this Thanks all!! "

Lisa Baker - Temporary Worker

"If it hadn’t been for you guys and your powers of persuasion I’m quite aware that I wouldn’t even have got an interview, never mind an offer. I had been for interview with a number of agencies, both in Wakefield and Leeds, but have to say Juice was the only one which I felt understood exactly what I was looking for, despite my qualifications. It was also the friendliness which I loved – you almost make candidates feel they are part of your team. Viki has been great – keeping my morale going at the beginning when I was waiting for decisions!! "

Carol Taylor- Temporary to permanent worker
