About the Reed Job Index

Whether you're looking for staff or looking for a job, it pays to keep up-to-date with what's happening in your industry and in your region.

What is the Reed Job Index?

The Reed Job Index tracks the number of new job opportunities on offer compared to the previous month and against a baseline of 100 set in December 2009. Data is analysed across every major industry sector and UK region and trends highlighted in a monthly report.

How is the data gathered?

Data for the index is compiled from reed.co.uk, the UK's largest job board, which every day lists over 200,000 job opportunities from 12,000 recruiters across 34 career sectors throughout the UK.

When is the data released?

Reed Job Index figures are released at the start of each month and give an accurate and timely snapshot of the UK's job market. The Reed Job Index has quickly become a respected measure of the state of the UK's job market, being widely reported across the national news media.
