Increase in demand for contractor services to come from private sector
Newly-released figures from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) suggest that private businesses rather than public sector organisations are set to lead the upturn in demand for contractor services over the coming months. According to the latest data, confidence among private sector employers has continued to pick up over the past few weeks, with the CIPD’s latest quarterly labour market survey finding that employers in England in particular are increasingly keen to take on new staff.
CIPD public policy director Gerwyn Davies commented, “The recession represents a long, dark winter for the jobs market. However, a return to Spring could mean a growth of full-time jobs in the private sector that may continue if the global economy continues to recover at the same rate.”
