Recruitment market is upbeat, says REC
Strong growth in the recruitment market is expected for the first months of 2008, it has been suggested.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has released research finding that 2007 ended with a good performance from the recruitment industry.

What's more, employers are more optimistic about 2008 than they were about 2007, the REC discovered.

The REC's director of research, Roger Tweedy, stated that 2007 was a good year for recruitment.

"The uncertainty in the wider economy has certainly not yet hit most recruiters," he remarked.

Furthermore, employers have identified an increased need for agency workers over the next six months.

Forthcoming debates on agency worker rights should focus on the facts, the REC added, with only nine per cent of temporary employees unhappy in their work.

Yesterday, it was revealed that there are mixed predictions for the growth of graduate recruitment this year following comments from Dan Hawes of the Graduate Recruitment Bureau.
