REC is positive about labour market
The labour market is not performing as badly as some people may have thought, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has said.

According to Tom Hadley, director of external relations at the REC, the economy and the labour market are closely linked, with the employment sector likely to suffer directly if there was a recession.

However, Mr Hadley described the current employment market as "not very negative" and as a "mixed picture".

"There is pressure on the labour market at the moment and some sectors have been affected, notably the financial institutions, but there was a slight downturn for jobs last month and this picked up again this month," he said.

Mr Hadley noted that many people may have thought the labour market would be a lot worse off at this moment in time.

KPMG and the REC discovered that there was a light increase in permanent staff appointments in March after a decline in February.
