The increase in medical jobs in the UK, potentially including anatomical pathology positions, was the highest in two years in November.

This is according to figures produced by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), which said that employment generally experienced a good month, with the nursing, medical and care professions faring the best.

As well as a rise in the number of available roles, the market also experienced gains in the pay received by workers.

This was the first time this had occurred in 15 months, the REC said.

The organisation, which formed nine years ago following the merger of the Federation of Recruitment and Employment Services and the Institute of Employment Consultants, based its findings on a survey of 400 companies.

Responding to the data, its chief executive Kevin Green said: "This is very positive news. Employers in nearly all sectors are lifting recruitment freezes and starting to hire again."
