A report published by Barclay Meade and seen by the Recruiter indicates that 47 per cent of companies hired a similar number of people in the fourth quarter of 2010 to what they would have done in an average three-month period before the recession.
This is an increase on the 37 per cent seen in the third quarter of 2010, according to the report, which also revealed that the number of companies implementing recruitment freezes fell from 30 per cent to 24 per cent across the same period.
Barclay Meade managing director Nigel Lynn told the website: "Employers may be moving on from the stagnation experienced in the third quarter of 2010 in to a period of re-balancing and gradual growth … suggesting a returning level of confidence among employers."
According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, the government needs to issue more incentives to private sector employers to ensure that more young people are hired and quell rising unemployment among this demographic in the months ahead.
