Starting salaries highest rise in 24 years

Starting salaries and temporary staff wages have risen at the sharpest rate for 24 years, a survey suggests.
Robust demand for staff is being fuelled by rising economic activity, said KPMG and the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC).
At the same time, there are fewer candidates for jobs, driving big increases in starting pay.
There is strong demand for jobs in sectors including IT staff hotels and catering.
A survey of 400 recruitment firms found the number of people available for jobs has fallen to a near-record low.
Recruiters said greater demand for staff, a high employment rate, fewer EU workers and a lack of confidence among employees to switch roles due to the pandemic all contributed to the latest decline in candidate numbers.
