The latest Report on Jobs by Bank of Scotland has been published showing again that the jobs market is performing well.

"Demand for staff was strong but accompanied by a lack of available candidates." Seems to be a continual theme from Donald MacRae, Chief Economist at Bank of Scotland. He added, "the number of people appointed to permanent jobs rose" and "Salary inflation picked up in the month partially reflecting demand for staff"

In terms of location of permanent job appointment growth Glasgow was top of the list. For contracts, rates were up highest in Dundee and Edinburgh.

Availability of permanent staff fell during April, and the average permanent salaries increased sharply accordingly.
