UNEMPLOYMENT has fallen so far that some recruiters now have more vacancies on their books than jobseekers.

Jobs site Adzuna today reported it had 968,273 vacancies registered at the end of 2014, a rise of 30 per cent on the year. But at the same time it only had 823,032 jobseekers.

However, Adzuna said advertised salaries are not yet picking up to meet the mismatch of supply and demand.
