Job placements boosted by recession's end

The number of job placements made in the UK last month increased, according to new figures from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and consultancy KPMG.

Permanent and temporary hirings rose to a value of 54.5, where 50 indicates growth.

The number of full-time staff being taken on hit its highest level since May 2011, which is sure to provide a boost for jobseekers approaching sales recruitment agencies in the coming weeks.

This change was attributed to employers gaining confidence about their economic future as the longest double-dip recession since the 1950s came to an end.

"Employers are confident about their own businesses and, as they deal with increasing demand, are driving the momentum for more people finding work," said REC chief executive Kevin Green.

It came after the latest Reed Job Index found that the number of fresh job listings posted across the country in October was up four per cent when compared to September.
