However, growth at its slowest rate since January new survey reveals
The number of Scots finding permanent jobs rose in June but at the slowest rate of growth since January, a survey from Bank of Scotland suggests.
Bank of Scotland's Report on Jobs, compiled from surveys of recruitment agencies, suggests a “moderate” rise in the number of permanent places filled in June.
Computing and IT provided the most permanent placements in June, with five of the eight main sectors recording growth in permanent jobs.
Hotel and catering, secretarial and clerical, engineering and construction, and accounts and financial all recorded growth in permanent placements in June.
Executive and professional, nursing, medical and care, and blue collar sectors all recorded a fall in permanent jobs in June compared with May figures.
However, recruitment firms also reported a drop in billings for temporary staff in June compared with May figures.
Average pay fell in June at its fastest rate since September 2010.
Glasgow recorded the strongest increase in permanent placements in June and Dundee the largest reduction while Aberdeen recorded the largest drop in temporary placement billings and temp hourly rates.
Donald MacRae, chief economist at Bank of Scotland, said: "The Report on Jobs for June showed vacancies continuing to rise and an increase in the numbers of people appointed to permanent jobs.
“However the rate of growth slowed showing a weakening in labour market conditions.
“The Scottish economy is struggling to maintain growth momentum in the face of the global slowdown.”
