Some notifications take the form of "standing orders" for an unspecified number of jobs in a particular occupational group. For statistical purposes each "standing order" is counted as one vacancy, though in practice the number of vacancies arising from each standing order can be expected to be larger.
** Vacancies in these categories are, in the main, appropriate to the Professional and Executive Register.
