Graduate job hunters may be interested to hear
that the monthly jobs report from the Recruitment and Employment
Confederation (REC) and KPMG showed that that the number of people
being placed in permanent jobs in the UK rose in March at its
fastest rate since October 1997.
The permanent placements index, used by the REC and KPMG, rose from
63.2 in February to 65.2, while the temporary placements index rose
to 60.9 from 57.9, which was in fact a 33-month high.
Bernard Brown, partner at KPMG, said: "The UK jobs market seems to
be going from strength to strength, with permanent job placements
growing at the fastest rate for 12 years.
"These figures show that private sector confidence is returning and
that the UK is existing recession at a pace."
This news comes soon after PricewaterhouseCoopers was named the
most desired company to work for in the Guardian's UK 300, after
being second place last year, while last year's winners Deloitte
slumped to fifth place in the Trendence Survey.
