A new survey among financial services firms carried out by Reed shows that demand for new staff remained steady among most companies in August and even increased in some organisations, despite the summer usually being a quiet time for recruitment in the sector.
Martin Warnes, the managing director of Reed, said the figures are "quietly encouraging" for the economy as a whole, particularly as 49 per cent of firms say they will be employing new staff by the end of 2010.
"It seems that overall confidence, particularly in the services sector, has been slowly but steadily building over the summer," he added.
Recently, accountancy body ICAEW and accountants Grant Thornton compiled a study for the second quarter of 2010 which revealed UK financial services firms are expecting to employ a greater number of workers in the coming months.
