UK employment – The British job market has received a boost after a survey suggested that more firms were looking to hire people than let them go.
Recruitment firm Manpower, who conducted the research, said the survey’s findings showed that businesses were encouraged by the prospects for economic growth.
Managing director Mark Cahill said: “It does feel like we’re turning a corner when it comes to the jobs market.”
“Businesses that were battening down the hatches in the last quarter appear to be considering taking on staff. We’ve noticed much more flexibility among employers, particularly in the market for permanent hiring.”
Meanwhile the Bank of England governor Sir Mervyn King said he expected that the UK economy will avoid a double dip recession and that some businesses had experienced improved performance at the beginning of the year.
