The employment market in the UK is still maintaining its buoyancy,
according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), which
could be good news for those seeking graduate jobs.
Tom Hadley, REC director of external relations, said that the
organisation is feeling positive about the outlook for the new
year, despite last year's predictions that the slowing economy
could have an effect on employment.
Media reports which have warned of a slowdown in employment may
simply be "scare stories", he explained.
"So far, the labour market remains in good shape despite the claims
in some quarters of a job creation slow-down," Mr Hadley
He went on to forecast that the changing demographic of the
workforce over the next decade will "have a massive impact" on
several sectors of the UK economy.
Mr Hadley's comments follow those of Brendan Barber, general
secretary of the Trades Union Congress, who recently told members
that UK employment is at a record level.
