Employment Snapshot September 2015

2015 has been a busy year in terms of recruitment in the Facilities Management Industry as companies across the board have hired new facilities related staff. There was a pre-election dip in terms of the volume of new permanent vacancies, but the market has quickly rebounded and August was one of the most active months in terms of volume of new vacancies we can remember at Maxwell Stephens.

We expect a further increase in the number of new permanent and temporary requirements from the second week of September until the end of 2015. This is backed up by information provided by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) who say they expect 84% of companies to grow their workforces over the next 3 months.


As a business we have seen salaries rise gradually throughout 2015 and any further rises will continue the transition to a candidate led market.


The results for all in the industry will mean that it will be harder to land candidates.


The solution is to try and speed up the recruitment process and try and be as flexible on salaries as possible, (within reason of course). There will be an increase of Counter-offers, however the team at Maxwell Stephens will be on hand to manage this process for you.
