Contractor News Roundup: July 2020
According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation’s June JobsOutlook, increasing numbers of employers say they will be looking to grow or maintain both their temporary and permanent workforces over the next year. One in three employers is looking to hire in the long term – the highest level witnessed over the last year, whilst the increase in demand for temporary agency workers over the short term has also been maintained.
Commenting on the report, Roger Tweedy, the REC’s Director of Research, said there are ‘increasingly positive signs’ of a gradual upturn in employers’ hiring intentions, probably linked to greater post-election stability – and also stated, “Greater fluidity seems to be returning to the jobs market, with recent survey data from Gfk NOP suggesting that up to six million workers are now planning to move jobs.”
Earlier this month, the REC and KPMG reported that both temp and permanent hiring increased during May 2010, albeit at a slower rate than in April.
