David Roust, head of the recruitment industry team at Barclays Corporate, told the Recruiter that "sufficient momentum" will ensure that the UK economy continues to grow, with economists at the bank estimating growth of 1.6 per cent in 2010, 2.1 per cent this year and 2.2 next year.
However, while this is likely to create a "stable" environment for UK firms, subdued growth rates may have a negative impact on unemployment figures, the specialist added.
"In terms of general demand, a strengthening in household consumption, net trade and investment should offset some of the fall in public sector demand. Business investment certainly has the potential to grow in 2011," he added.
It comes after the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's December JobsOutlook revealed that 23 per cent of organisations will employ more permanent workers next year, including those in sales recruitment, while 32 per cent will be taking on more temporary staff.
