Institute for Employment Studies briefing note on COVID-19 impact on job vacancies

Posted 27.04.2020

The Institute for Employment Studies has produced a Briefing Note which is the first of a series exploring changes in vacancies since the Covid-19 lockdown began. The work is funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and uses real-time vacancy data.

This first briefing note presents early findings on how vacancy levels have changed overall, across local areas and by different job types.  Vacancy reduction across D2N2 averages 40%: Nottingham  – 41%,  Nottinghamshire – 42%,  Derby – 40%, Derbyshire   – 40%.


BBO is having a significant impact on individual lives, supporting people to increase their confidence, independence and achieve their employment aspirations.
