The number of vacancies available in Scotland has increased, according to new figures.

Total Back Office Solutions can handle your recruitment agency timesheet management.

Business start-ups considering outsourcing recruitment agency timesheet management with the view to focusing on placing candidates in Scotland may be interested in the latest statistics on the health of the region's employment.

According to the Bank of Scotland Labour Market Barometer, the number of candidates seeking permanent employment in the Scottish labour market increased for the 26th consecutive month during May.

Scottish recruiters reported another rise in the number of candidates placed in permanent jobs despite employment and pay rising at slower rates, pushing the barometer from 54.3 to 52.3.

Despite the index remaining above the 50 "no-change" threshold, it was far below the UK-wide indicator, which was 56.4, and Donald MacRae, chief economist at the Bank of Scotland, was optimistic about the future.

He said: "This month's increase in appointments in both permanent and temporary jobs, as well as the rise in the number of vacancies available, is a sign that the Scottish labour market is in recovery."

Outsourcing back office solutions to an agency is an ideal way to free up valuable time to focus on business expansion.
