Demand for umbrella service
contractors is on the rise in Scotland.
That's according to new figures showing temporary vacancies north of the border increased for the thirty-second consecutive month in June.
The Bank of Scotland data reveals vacancies rose strongly over the month, but the rate of increase was slightly weaker than the long-term average and the slowest in three months.
Scotland posted a faster rate of vacancy growth than the UK average, as the number of available temporary roles across the UK as a whole increased only modestly during the latest survey period.
IT and computing recorded the strongest increase in vacancies, as has been the case for the past three months, while the nursing, medical and care sector saw the weakest rise from May.
