A study carried out by Manpower shows that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are driving job creation, with hiring intentions of +8 per cent over the next three months.
The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, which compiles responses from over 2,100 UK employers about their recruitment intentions for the coming economic quarter, showed an overall, seasonally-adjusted net employment outlook of +3 per cent for the July to September period.
Mark Cahill, UK managing director of Manpower, said "small is beautiful" when it comes to job vacancies.
"SMEs were amongst the first to shed jobs during the recession, but we're now seeing them build their workforce again and becoming an increasingly important source of job creation in the UK," he added.
It comes after data issued by the Office for National Statistics this week showed that manufacturing output in April was up 1.3 per cent compared with last year's figure, suggesting a continuing return to economic growth.
