UK hiring plans at 16 year high
More good news for the UK employment market:
A recent study by accountancy firm BDO has suggested that UK companies plan on employing new staff at the fastest rate for 16 years. Their research suggested that the increasing confidence from "service firms" has caused the highest hiring plan figures since 1998.
Although good news in general, they did highlight that many services companies had already raised serious concerns about the shortage of skilled workers in the UK.
