Latest findings show that with employer confidence continuing to grow, the UK’s hiring spree is set to continue into 2022.
The Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s recent JobsOutlook survey found that in the three months to August, business confidence in hiring and investment decisions remained high.
Over the next three months, demand for temp/contract staff is high at net: +17. Looking at the next 4-12 months, this is net: +10.
Neil Carberry, Chief Executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), commented, “Businesses’ confidence levels remain robust and that has led to sky-high demand for workers. Demand is still growing for both temporary and permanent staff, but permanent hiring now leads the way after starting its recovery much later than for temps. This pattern follows the model of previous recoveries.
