• The most significant growth in salaries was for competitive hiring sectors including project management for commercial construction up 12% and New Homes sales up 14%.

• Vacancy activity in UK construction has over the past 12 months been fuelled by inner city commercial construction and has at the end of Q1 2016 begun to soften as residential starts slowed.

• Major cities outside London saw the largest rise in the growth of property professional vacancies and salaries since 2007.

• Growth of interim hiring activity is rising as the active permanent candidate market opt for stability and employers seek a flexible workforce in the face of market uncertainty.

• London remains the top destination for European real estate investment professionals.
