Lee Biggins (pictured), founder and managing director at CV Library, said: “It’s positive to see that salaries are on the rise across the UK, especially in some of the nation’s key cities and industries. With Christmas fast approaching, many businesses will have been working hard to recruit for additional seasonal staff. Not only this, but in the run up to the new year many organisations will be looking to boost their recruitment efforts ahead of the January rush.”
