Scotland’s Permanent Job Placements Continue to Grow, BoS Report

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The growth in permanent job placements last month in Scotland stayed near their highest on record, the Bank of Scotland said today in a report.

“August’s Barometer was at the second highest level since September 2007,” Donald MacRae, chief economist at Bank of Scotland, said in the e-mailed statement. “The number of people appointed to permanent jobs rose sharply, while the number of vacancies for permanent jobs increased at the strongest rate for over two years.”

Aberdeen in northern Scotland showed the strongest rise in permanent placements while Dundee had the greatest increase in temporary appointments, the report said.

The Bank of Scotland Labour Market Barometer was at 59.7 in August, compared with 60.3 in July.

Bank of Scotland is part of the Lloyds Banking Group Plc.
