Pay Pressures October 2015

Blank

Permanent Salaries
Average starting salaries for people placed in permanent jobs increased further in September. The rate of growth eased to a 20-month low, although remained strong overall. Where a rise in salaries was recorded (at around 26% of panellists), this was frequently attributed to shortages of suitable candidates. 
The sharpest increase in salaries was recorded in the Midlands, while the slowest growth was signalled by London-based consultancies. 

Temp/contract pay rates 
Hourly rates of pay for staff in temporary/contract employment rose further in September. That said, the rate of growth eased to an 18-month low. 
Mirroring the trend for permanent salaries, temporary/contract staff pay growth was strongest in the Midlands and weakest in London.
