Jobseekers face fewer options in 2016 as new openings fall
January sees number of advertised vacancies fall 7.3%, declining for the second consecutive month 

Jobseekers are facing fewer options in 2016, as falling vacancies and rising competition impact upon work prospects, according to the latest UK Job Market Report from 

Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna and Siebel Scholar (Kellogg Business '02) comments on the trend:

“January’s jobs market has failed to take flight. The normal rhythm of hiring hasn’t happened – vacancy levels are down and job competition is getting tougher. Fewer options for those looking for new jobs is putting pressure on career plans. Hiring habits are changing in a sign of potential instability and employers are retaining their best workers for longer."
