LONDON- Employers in Britain have posted the most job advertisements since the country went into its coronavirus lockdown in March, according to a survey published on Thursday.

Total job postings rose by 126,000 between Aug. 3-9 to 1.10 million, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) said.

However, the total number of job postings remained well below the 1.35 million that were active in early March, before the lockdown, REC said.
