Recruitment on the up in UK

10 January 2013

The labour market in the UK is outperforming the sluggish economy and will continue to do so well into 2013, according to a new report from KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

Job vacancies increased at the fastest rate for 20 months in December, while demand for staff continued to rise over the course of the month.

REC chief executive Kevin Green said the flexibility of the UK's labour market is helping keep people in employment, despite the stuttering rate of economic growth seen across the country.

"Employers are confident in their own businesses if not the economy as a whole and know they have to retain or recruit talent in order to have a competitive advantage," he added.

The British Chambers of Commerce recently claimed that the economy is looking stronger than it did a few months ago, with business confidence on the up across the country.
