Recruitment firm, Reed, says job listings have increased after Brexit vote

British recruitment firm Reed Group reported an 8 percent increase in job listings on its website since the Brexit vote in June

The Mail on Sunday says that the website has had over 150,000 more jobs added since the June 23 referendum compared to the same period last year, although it did not give a comparative figure.

“The vote hasn’t affected things. People are still hiring and there are lots of opportunities,” Chairman James Reed told the newspaper.

“We’ve seen consistent growth in areas like technology and engineering. And we are expecting to see more people coming to Britain on the back of the change in exchange rates so we are anticipating more jobs in tourism and hospitality,” he said.

There were expectations that uncertainty after Brexit would hit business and consumer confidence.

However, British recruiter PageGroup Plc said that it had seen a slowdown in the run-up to the country’s June 23 referendum on leaving the European Union.
