DEMAND for skilled professionals will increase in 2015, according to research by recruitment firm, Eden Scott.

Says the recruitment specialists: “The outlook for the year is relatively optimistic despite a universal concern that finding suitable candidates will be much more challenging than in recent years.”

The research has found:

  • Job growth predicted in 2015
  • Skill shortages are expected to drive salaries up, particularly in markets such as IT
  • A third of UK workers are expected to change their role this year
  • Employers set to invest in ‘employer branding’ to tempt the best talent
