Kelly Adamson, the north east regional director of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, has praised the government's decision to introduce enterprise zones to the region that will create 1,000 new jobs by 2015.
The sectors she suggested would be encouraged include the petrochemical, steel and biotechnology industries, as well as businesses involved in renewable energy.
She said that the government's decision to back these zones is a strong and positive step in the right direction for the region.
Ms Adamson asserted: "As the population looks to private sector SMEs to create employment opportunities that can bridge the gap in public sector job losses, any initiative that encourages and rewards the proven, entrepreneurial spirit within our great region, is just fantastic."
Recent REC figures also showed that 67 per cent of employers have short-term plans to increase their permanent workforce over the next three months, with 83 per cent intending to maintain or increase their use of agency workers during this period.
