Security Guards and Cleaners in demand as UK Lock-down eases
The demand for security guards and FM worker increases as people returning to work and retailers are reopening their doors.
Business matters reports: „A tracker published by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation, the industry body, showed the number of job postings for security guards and related roles was 3.8 per cent higher between 11-17 May than in the previous week, with 7,400 new openings. Adverts for industrial cleaners rose by 3.6 per cent, while demand for health professionals, pharmacists and pharmaceutical technicians also increased.
“Health and social care workers being in high demand isn’t a surprise, but as more workplaces start to reopen, we are likely to see similar trends emerging for other roles,”
Said Neil Carberry, chief executive of the REC, adding that the tracker could help guide efforts to redeploy furloughed and unemployed workers into sectors where demand was returning.”
