REC’s October Jobs Outlook

The REC’s latest Job Outlook report has revealed that although employer confidence remains fragile, there are signs that employers are becoming more confident about longer-term hiring intentions.
This is obviously great news for employees on the job market.
The report found that over the next 12 months, 42 per cent of employers are planning to grow their permanent staff while another 48 per cent say they intend to keep it at the same level as today.
Commenting on the latest data, Roger Tweedy, the REC’s Director of Research said:
“The underlying trend this month is one of improvement in employers’ optimism about their future hiring intentions. Though the overall scores have only fluctuated slightly over the past month, the last three months of data show that there are definite signs that confidence is returning.
“Employers will continue to err on the side of caution on how they shape their workforces in both the short and long-term. However, the ongoing feedback from recruitment professionals confirms that businesses in many sectors are still looking to attract workers with the right talent despite the difficult economic climate. This explains the slight upturn in hiring intentions and confirms that job opportunities are still out there.”
