Permanent placement numbers increasing, report shows

The recruitment outlook is improving and permanent placements are on the rise, according to a new report published this morning (December 10th).

Indeed, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's (REC) Report on Jobs says that the number of permanent job placements at small firms and other businesses grew at its fastest rate for 19 months in November.

Furthermore, there was the strongest rise in temporary billings since March 2011, while November also saw a sharp expansion in overall job vacancy numbers.

REC's chief executive Kevin Green said that with the number of permanent and temporary positions on the rise, it's beginning to look like "an accelerating trend".

"Employer confidence is genuinely bouncing back with businesses feeling more encouraged to hire, which bodes well for the New Year," he explained.

"The reductions in corporation tax and investment in big infrastructure projects announced in the Autumn Statement should help boost confidence even higher and encourage more job creation in 2013."

It comes after the government announced plans to improve the manufacturing supply chain, with 2,000 job positions estimated to follow because of it.
