The number of advertised personnel posts has grown by over a third in the last 12 months – meaning there are now ten times as many jobs in the sector than ten years ago, a survey has claimed.
Over 50 per cent of jobs advertised this year are in generalist personnel, training and development are second at 95 per cent and consultancy advertisements comprise 14 per cent of the total.
Commenting on the Salary Survey Publications report Amanda Molyneaux said the upturn in opportunities in personnel was because of the growth in employment legislation requiring companies to call on the services of HR professionals.
She said: "At a business or organisational level, this mirrors the continuing increase in complexity of employment requirements, the growth of legislation enforcing good practice and the focus on people as a resource."
