New data has found that many employers are optimistic about the coming year in terms of the job market and recruitment activity.
The Recruitment and Employment Confederation's (REC) industry research unit has released it monthly tracking research results for the last quarter of 2007 which indicate that employers have a healthy outlook on the development of the job market, reports Onrec.
Commenting on the findings, Roger Tweedy, the REC's director of research commented: "During this period of uncertainty and heightened economic speculation, it is important to focus on what is really happening on the ground."
The data also showed that satisfaction levels of agency workers as well as employer satisfaction with temporary workers both rose in 2007 compared to the previous year.
Despite a slight decrease in the demand for permanent staff in the final quarter, employers forecast growth in the area over the next 12 months, says the report.
The REC is the trade body that supports and represents the recruitment industry.
