Jobseekers Become Increasingly Flexible

A recent study conducted by Gumtree has revealed almost half of jobseekers are willing to agree a pay cut and more than a third prepared to take a more junior role to get back into employment as worries about how people are going to continue servicing their personal debts mount. The survey also revealed that increasing numbers of public sector workers are desperately trying to migrate across to the private sector before the planned redundancies hit.
