Organisations are anticipating problems recruiting qualified staff in the future, according to the latest Recruitment Confidence Index from the Cranfield School of Management.

The research showed that eight in ten companies expect it to become much tougher to find the right people to fill vacancies.

According to the school, organisations reported their lowest level of confidence in being able to recruit suitable staff since the index was first compiled in 1999.

Commenting on the findings, Dr Emma Parry, research fellow at Cranfield, said: "Organisations have been recruiting more and more, but fewer high quality people have been coming into the workforce, resulting in rising recruitment difficulties for employers."

In related news, a new contract has been agreed between Working Links and the Learning and Skills Council to improve employability skills among people looking for jobs in the north-east of England, reports 24dash.com.

The scheme is to be made available to anyone currently unemployed in the region.
