More Permanent Jobs In The UK Economy

15 Apr 2012

More Permanent Jobs In The UK Economy Research from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG has shown that for the third month running the number of permanent jobs in the UK has risen.

According to the monthly report from the REC and professional services firm, particularly in high demand for job placements at the moment are staff with skills in computing and IT.

The number of temporary jobs on offer fell for the first time in two and a half years, however, as employers have taken recent changes in legislation as an opportunity to convert temporary and agency staff onto permanent contracts.

Tom Hadley, director of policy and professional services at REC, said that recent tax adjustments to the Youth Contract in the Budget combined with reductions in bureaucracy for businesses should further boost employer confidence and accelerate hiring activity.

“As demand increases, the need to address the disconnect between the skills employers are looking for and what job seekers have to offer, will become more pressing. Expertise in IT and engineering, as well as workers in catering and driving, continue to be sought after,” said Mr Hadley.

Mr Hadley added that the increase in confidence from employers was great news for jobseekers but warned that more still needed to be done for school leavers and graduates.
