Geographically, London offered the most opportunities in England with a seven point increase. Other areas of England showed either a small increase or remained largely the same. In terms of the rest of the UK the news was mixed with Northern Ireland showing an increase of twelve points while Wales were down eleven points and Scotland twelve points.

Julian Acquari, the Managing Director of Monster UK and Ireland said that “The March findings show that UK online recruitment activity continues to trend higher, with the annual growth rate hitting 15%. We are seeing encouraging signs in online hiring trends for hard-hit sectors like marketing, whilst arts and healthcare have seen improvements both on the month and the year.  Overall, however, the UK economy remains cautious, with unemployment and job-creation trends still tenuous.\”
