London financial services vacancies fall by 8%

London Canary Wharf

Job vacancies at London’s financial-services companies fell by 8% in July from the previous month as hiring by large securities firms slowed, according to a survey by a recruitment firm.

Bloomberg News reports that the number of openings in the City and Canary Wharf financial districts decreased to 2,000 in July from 2,190 in June, Astbury Marsden said in a statement.

However, smaller companies such as high-frequency and algorithmic trading firms, are 'actively' creating new positions and adding employees, according to the recruiter.
