Unprecedented demand for staff in Edinburgh and dramatically rising livingcosts and house prices are leading to calls for a “weighting” elementto be included in salary costs to attract staff. Unemployment levels are among the lowest in the UK at 2.7 per cent while jobcreation is at an all time peak as financial services, Internet-relatedbusinesses and the impact of the Scottish Parliament are all playing their partin creating a boom in the city.The inflationary effect, which has been in place for some time amongemployees in greatest demand in IT, is spreading to all levels with a markeddifference occurring at the level of administrative worker.UK-wide employment firm, Time Recruitment, believes that there are signs ofa weighting element being added to Edinburgh wages to attract staff at a timeof shortages. It says salaries in Aberdeen two years ago were the highest in Scotland dueto the oil industry, but this has now changed with Edinburgh taking the leadover other Scottish cities.But Edinburgh-based recruitment firm, The Reach Consultancy, thinks that”the market will sort itself out”. Chris Jackson, chairman of the group, thinks that “there is evidence ofa differential occurring between Edinburgh and other Scottish cities. “We know that salaries in Edinburgh are between 10 and 12 per centhigher than in Glasgow at all levels and this has largely been fuelled byfinancial services. “But I do think that if the market overheats then future expansion isunlikely as employers will transfer many of these jobs, such as call centres,to other UK locations rather than pay a weighted salary.”Jackson also believes this is the time for “companies to be moreaggressive in training school leavers and training them properly so that thereare sufficient staff to counteract such boom periods.”last_img
