Trying to fill vacancies in the current jobs climate in the United Kingdom must feel like "like wandering through a hall of mirrors" for most employers, professional services company KPMG have said.

Bernard Brown of KPMG said: "Trying to fill vacancies in the current climate must feel like wandering through a hall of mirrors for the UK's employers.

"No sooner are they in a position to reflect the improving economy by creating roles and offering tempting salaries, than the search for talent seems to reach a dead end, with candidates either preferring to hide in the shadows or failing to offer the appropriate skills."
