Recovering Jobs Market

The Hays recruitment agency has said that a recovering jobs market, a UK skills shortage and an increase in business confidence, will put pressure on employers to increase salaries next year, with one in five employers expected to increase pay above 2.5%. Hays surveyed 20,000 employers and employees in the UK. The latest survey by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation found that 80% of businesses plan to hire permanent staff in the next three months, and 76% plan to increase headcount in the medium term. A shortage of contract/temporary workers is expected for technical and engineering roles (16%), construction roles (11%) and driving/distribution roles (11%). [ source: GTAssociates ]
