PM's pledge on private-sector jobs welcomed

Published: Tuesday, 11 January 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has welcomed David Cameron's pledge to stimulate private-sector growth and jobs, something that could lead to more graduate opportunities.

David Frost, director general of the organisation, said that the move will be particularly crucial too the success of smaller businesses, who may otherwise struggle to hire and fire as they need to.

The prime minister called on private-sector bosses to create thousands of new jobs to pick up the slack from the public sector, where severe cuts have been made.

He told leaders from a range of different industries that the government will do all it can to ease the recruitment process.

"We constantly argue that regulation is an increasing barrier to jobs growth. Despite this, successive governments have increased rather than decreased the burden," said Mr Frost.

"So we warmly welcome the fact that the prime minister is looking at ways to make recruitment easier - particularly for smaller businesses."

In a statement released on Monday, Mr Cameron said: "Across a whole range of areas you're going to see the most pro-business, pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda ever unleashed by a government."
