The current economic downturn is nowhere near as bad as previous recessions, according to one expert.
Paul Woolston, head of PricewaterhouseCoopers's (PwC) Newcastle branch, believes the recovery could start as soon as the end of 2009, reports the Newcastle Journal.
Mr Woolston made his comments as he announced an increase in the regional office's profits, something which has allow them to appoint 27 people to graduate jobs this year, an increase on previous intakes.
He said: "Thanks to the tremendous efforts of our staff, we have achieved another year of significant growth despite a challenging economic climate."
The economy is not in as bad a position as some have made out, he added.
Meanwhile, those looking to work in the civil service might be interested to know the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman is opening an office in Manchester.
According to the Manchester Evening news, the move should bring more graduate jobs to the area.
