Increase in employer confidence

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation has published a report stating that employer confidence to recruit in the short and long term has reached the highest level since 2009. 72% of employers plan to increase the number of permanent employees over the next quarter, with 70% expecting to increase permanent hires over the coming 12 months. For temporary roles, 34% of employers plan to increase the level of agency workers used, whilst virtually the entire balance of employers intend to keep temporary staffing levels constant. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation's director of research, Roger Tweedy, said: "The overall figures from quarter one are really positive. Looking forward, employers tell us they plan to make more job offers over both the short and medium term - particularly for permanent roles.”
