ComRes has conducted The Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s (REC) JobsOutlook monthly tracking survey since 2016. Every month, ComRes surveys by telephone 200 business owners or employees involved in hiring. Each wave is representative of the proportions of UK adults in employment by region, broad industry sector and public / private split. Results of the survey are combined on a three-month rolling basis.
Taking over the tracking research from another provider, ComRes worked with the REC to review and strengthen the existing survey to provide greater depth and breadth of data to inform insight. This was achieved by making the survey more representative, designing less ambiguous questions and updating their format, as well as including more detailed responses and new roles.
The REC’s JobsOutlook provides a comprehensive picture of permanent and temporary recruitment, vacancies, and earnings in all regions and sectors of the UK labour market. The survey is published monthly and distributed to the REC’s members, giving them unique insight into the UK labour and recruitment market.
