London lags behind in job vacancies

London is lagging behind the rest of the country for job vacancies as businesses in the capital struggle to deal with social distancing measures, work-from-home policies and the closures of non-essential shops, according to a new report.
The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) said there were 1.77 million job adverts in the UK last month, an increase of 10.5% from December 2019.
There were big increases in vacancies in healthcare and construction, while hospitality and leisure industries continue to struggle, said the report.
