Economic turbulence and the woes of the eurozone are
having diverse affects on UK
According to a new survey by the Recruitment
and Employment Confederation: JobsOutlook, the overall outlook
still looks positive, however the confidence of UK graduate recruiters has
dipped since last months high.
The REC’s barometer of employer confidence has
dipped this month; however this isn’t to do with employers concerns
about their own organisations’ performance, but more to do with the
external economic climate.
Yet good news for graduates as many employers state they
still plan to employ more staff over the next three to 12 month
periods. The percentage of employers looking to employ more staff
has fallen slightly since April as bosses assess their need for
additional staff whilst considering the economic climate.
The report still found that many employers are
failing to find suitably skilled staff that they need in the areas
of IT and telecommunications, engineering and technical
Commenting on the latest figures, the REC’s Director of Research,
Roger Tweedy, said: “Employers took on more staff during the first
quarter of this year, but confidence is fragile and bad news about
GDP growth and from the eurozone will contribute to them feeling a
little more cautious about the future.
“Demand for staff is higher in certain sectors and bosses tell us
that despite the current rate of unemployment they still predict
they will find it hard to fill the vacancies they have for
engineers and skilled IT and technical staff.”
