Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in banking and finance may be interested to hear details about the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's (REC) JobsOutlook survey.

Included within the survey are details that show the highest employer confidence recorded so far this year with a total of 96 per cent of employers saying they now expect their permanent workforces to remain static of grow in the next three months.

Meanwhile, a total of 86 per cent expect their use of agency workers to grow or stay the same within the same period, while the longer term outlook also looks bright with 94 per cent of emloyers expecting to maintain or grow their permanent workforce over the year.

Roger Tweedy, the REC's director of research, said: "This is the most encouraging sign we have had so far that the jobs market is now gathering momentum led by a higher demand for temporary workers.

"Following last month's slight dip in employer confidence businesses are forging ahead with plans to stabilise or expand their workforce. This fits with the feedback from professional recruiters on the ground, who are reporting increased hiring."
