  • (1888PressRelease) December 15, 2015 - According to the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), more than 100,000 public sector jobs are expected to be lost over the course of this parliament; with Birmingham City Council already announcing that 1,200 jobs are to be cut in 2016. Despite the cuts the number of public sector vacancies advertised in November, via Recruitive's multi-job posting solution, was 7.78% higher than the previous month.

    Recruitive's Managing Director, Richard Clarke comments; "Our cloud based software helps organisations bring recruitment in-house, significantly reducing the cost per hire, which is of paramount importance when faced with the probability of budget cuts. As a G-Cloud 7 approved supplier, we are pleased to be in a position to help public sector companies manage their recruitment costs as effectively as possible."

    Richard continues; "Over the past 12 months we have seen the number of vacancies posted to jobs boards, Universal Job Match and Public Sector Careers, increase by a massive 15% and 31% respectively. However it will be interesting to see what happens to the number of vacancies within the sector next year, especially once the new National Living Wage is introduced in April."

    A survey conducted in November by the professional body for HR and people development (CIPD) found that 21% of public sector employers say they plan to cut the size of their workforce as a result of the introduction of the National Living Wage compared to only 13% of private sector employers.
