Graduate job hunters will be interested to hear that the number of
permanent staff placements grew for the sixth consecutive month in
January 2010, while the figure for job vacancies was at its highest
since July 2007.
The statistics from the Report on Jobs from the Recruitment and
Employment Confederation and KPMG showed the outlook for graduate
job hunters continues to be positive.
Collated using data from 400 recruitment consultancies, the report
revealed that vacancies grew for the fourth month in a row and that
the amount of candidates looking for work also dropped.
Bernard Brown, partner and head of business services at KPMG, said
"The UK jobs market is continuing its journey back to health.
"Placements of permanent and temporary jobs have been rising again
in January, although at a slower pace than a month before, a
reminder that the road to recovery will be bumpy."
This news comes as an extra boost to the UK economy after it was
revealed last month that the country was officially out of
recession, albeit by only 0.1 per cent.
