“上个月，英国一些主要城市和部门的工资增长积极，加的夫的利物浦和曼彻斯特薪酬涨幅尤其高，看到强劲的增长，” CV-Library的创始人兼董事总经理Lee Biggins说。“薪酬在某些领域大幅上升是一个很好的迹象，表明全国的企业都在继续努力吸引最优秀的人才，尽管12月是一个比较安静的招聘月份。”
CV-Library : Average salaries across the UK increase by 1.1% in December
（Jan.11,2017,/staffingindustry.com/）Average salaries across the UK increased by 1.1% in December 2016, when compared to the previous month, according to statistics from the UK job board, CV-Library.
The data showed that among the sectors, the legal sector showed the highest increase in pay year-on-year at 13%; followed by property, which was up 8.2%; manufacturing at 7.6%;, recruitment at 7.2%; and IT which was up at 5.4%.
Among the cities, Cardiff led in salary growth at an increase of 17%, followed by Manchester at 5.8%.
“It’s positive to witness increases in salaries across some of the UK’s major cities and sectors last month, with the likes of Cardiff, Liverpool and Manchester seeing particularly strong growth,” said Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library. “The fact that pay has jumped so significantly in certain areas is a nice indication that businesses across the nation are continuing to work hard to attract the very best talent, despite December being a quieter month for hiring”.
Alongside this, the findings reveal that job vacancies were down by 9% when compared to December 2015, with applications also dropping by 1%. But CV-Library stated that while this could be perceived negatively, it is not unusual for this time of year, and could explain why salaries increased last month, as businesses pushed hard to attract active candidates ahead of the New Year’s rush.
