Internet Job Postings in the London Economic Region - Q2 of 2015

This report provides a view on the dynamics of the labour demand in the London Economic Region. Quarter-by-quarter and over-a-year comparisons as well as visual presentation of the data allow the reader to understand better the regional labour market progression.
