Three-quarters of firms 'set to hire more permanent staff'

Almost three-quarters (74 per cent) of companies in the UK are planning to hire more staff over the coming three months, according to new research.

The JobsOutlook from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) revealed that business confidence is rising in the country, which is good news for everyone searching for sales jobs.

An additional 66 per cent of the businesses polled said they would be looking to boost their permanent workforce in the next year.

The report showed that redundancies, pay freezes and reduced hours have all dropped significantly over the past few months, while more firms have increased their headcount over the same period.

"Employers are more positive about their hiring intentions, which reflects an improvement in overall business confidence," said Roger Tweedy, director of research at the REC.

He added: "Employers are recognising the need to ramp up their recruitment activity in order to attract high-potential candidates and move their business forward."

Recently, Antony Wroe, chair of REC Sales & Retail, said that sales recruitment professionals need to have "considerable skills" to succeed in the industry.
