New figures suggest that as the new year begins, businesses in
Scotland are in a good place to take advantage of a stable economy,
which could be positive news for those looking for graduate jobs in the area.
The latest Lloyds TSB Scotland Business Monitor reports that 42 per
cent of firms are reporting a rise in turnover, while 32 per cent
say they have had static turnover.
This result is approximately the same as the long-term average of
the monitor, according to Lloyds TSB Scotland.
Commenting on the findings, Professor Donald MacRae, chief
economist at Lloyds TSB Scotland, said that the Scottish economy is
in "a strong position".
"Although business confidence has fallen particularly in the
service sector, consumer confidence has not. In 2007 the Scottish
economy should grow at around 2.3 per cent," he added.
Last month, the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey revealed that
financial services jobs in Edinburgh were set to increase.
