More than half of Employers are looking to employ new staff over the next 3 months.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC)’s study showed that 51% of employers are planning to employ new staff in the next three months. The survey also revealed that the proportion of employers are suggesting that they need new staff to meet increasing demands  that have risen from 25% at the turn of the year to over a third (34%).

Furthermore, a record high eight out of ten employers intend to hire permanent staff to create more permanent jobs in the next quarter. In addition to this, 61% of employers report that they have not reduced the cost of their workforce at all in the last 12 months – either through redundancies, reduced pay or hours or headcount freezes. This indicates that businesses are currently going through a relatively stable period in the UK, which is of course great news for the economy.

It also indicates that Employers using recruitment providers such as Aspire Cambridge to employ new staff, are happy with the service and quality of candidate that they are being provided with.
