In the month of October six per cent more professional opportunities were recorded, compared to the same month last year.

The number of professionals seeking new roles was down 10% compared to the previous month, reflecting less movement in the jobs market compared to earlier in the year.

Many of the jobs created in 2015 are new roles and do not include legacy skill sets.
