The Recruitment and Employment Confederation's (REC's) latest JobsOutlook survey, which is carried out on a monthly basis, has outlined the views of many British business leaders at the moment.
For example, 40 per cent of employers polled stated that they plan to keep the number of permanent workers in their office space the same over the next three months.
However, more than half of those questioned (55 per cent) are looking to boost how many permanent employers they have on their books during the same period, while 49 per cent are confident of expanding sometime over the next four to 12 months.
Job hunters may also be intrigued about dipping into some temporary work, after 23 per cent of employers noted they plan to increase agency worker numbers during the next quarter.
Commenting on the report's findings, Roger Tweedy, director of research at the REC, underlined: "This month we're looking at a period of stability rather than cuts in worker numbers, which is still in line with predictions of a slow, stop-start recovery."
