Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, said that although the latest Report on Jobs showed a slight decrease in demand for permanent jobs for the first time in over two years, there is still strong demand in many sectors and it is important that the jobs market is not overlooked.
"For example, over 50,000 permanent jobs are filled each month through recruitment agencies alone and over a million temporary and contract workers are on assignment in any given week," he explained.
Mr Green said the longer-term outlook remains more upbeat and there has also been an increase in the number of employers planning to recruit over the coming 12 months, which all bodes well for the jobs market.
It comes after recent research carried out by the CBI and recruitment consultancy Harvey Nash found that 47 per cent of employers are predicting that their workforces will be larger by next year, while just 19 per cent are expecting to downsize.
