Recruiters have a 'positive outlook for the future'
Many senior recruitment professionals have a positive outlook for the future of the jobs industry, especially for temporary workers, despite the threat of a recession in the UK, it has been found.
According to research conducted by Encore Personnel Services, 86 per cent of companies asked thought they would continue to take on temporary staff when the minimum wage increases next April, Recruiter reported.
Another 47 per cent said they were likely to take on the same amount of staff next year as they did in 2008.
Greg Latham, managing director at Encore Personnel Services, said "The results definitely challenge other commentator's beliefs and it's comforting to know that client confidence is better than otherwise suggested."
Similarly, research by Hay's Senior Finance recently found that there has been a rise in the number of people recruited into the finance industry over the past two months.
