REC welcomes increasing hiring trend
Friday, 04 June 2010
Hiring activity appears to increasing among UK companies as the economic recovery progresses, it was suggested today (June 3rd).
Earlier this week, Reed.co.uk claimed that employer demand for new workers rose by one per cent in May compared to April, news which will be welcomed by graduates.
Tom Hadley, director of external relations at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), welcomed the findings of the new study.
However, he also warned businesses to ensure that they fully evaluate the attributes of their existing staff before deciding on their recruitment strategy.
"There are signs of increased hiring activity in the private sector which will provide important outlets for any public sector workers directly affected by the expenditure squeeze," he said.
"Any company looking to grow in the future needs to carefully consider the skill sets needed to support this growth and whether it needs additional staff or expertise to make this change possible."
The REC is the representative body for the UK's £27 billion private recruitment and staffing industry.
