​​​​​The number of job adverts in the UK has been steadily growing since the beginning of 2022, as the Omicron wave receded and hiring activity ramped up. According to the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC)’s new Labour Market Tracker, there were 224,000 new adverts posted in the week of 21-27 February – the highest weekly figure since early December.

As a result, the total number of active job postings has continued to rise through January and February, following the normal seasonal drop in late December. Last week there were roughly 1.82 million job adverts live in the UK, 8.6% higher than in the previous week.
