It's never been easier to get a job. That doesn't mean it's the job you want but it's commonly accepted that working and earning is good for our mental health creating a sense of self worth. Average weekly earnings also above inflation so we should have more in our pockets. So as candidates we can consider our options and shop around for jobs. The same can't be said for employers as the UK employment figures reach another record high and 854,000 job vacancies employers are going to have to think again about how they recruit the talent they need. 

The figures are a clear sign that the Government needs to relax the rules around working visas to bring in the talent we need as we are exhausting the supply of what we have available.
