Temporary work 'crucial'
Monday, 03 December 2007
Temporary work is playing a crucial role in the recruitment industry, according to a report, which could be good news for students who plan on doing temp work before finding graduate jobs.
The research, carried out by Bain for Eurociett, the recruitment industry's representative body in Europe, shows that by 2012 more than 2.1 million jobs will be created by the employment agency industry through restrictions on agencies being lifted, reports onrec.com
Tom Hadley, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's director of external relations, told the website: "The findings from the research underline the crucial importance of ensuring that any agreement on the directive enhances rather than hinders the effective provision of temporary work services across Europe."
37 per cent of the extra 570,000 jobs that will be created by restrictions being lifted would go to young people, according to the research.
Employment ministers of Europe are meeting December 5th to discuss giving temporary workers the same rights as people who are employed in full time jobs.
