Employers will be adding to their workforces

The REC's June Jobs Outlook shows that employers are predicting that they will be adding to their workforces in both the short term and longer terms.
This is encouraging news ahead of this week's employment figures and at a time when the short term outlook for the jobs market remains volatile.
Confidence among employers has steadied with 64% expecting to increase their permanent workforce over the next 3 months. Only 6% say they are expecting to make staff cutbacks over the year. 78% of employers are planning to either increase or maintain the number of agency staff in the shirt term.
Roger Tweedy, the REC's Director of Research, said,
"Employer confidence is at a 12 month high. This picture is one of cautious optimism as businesses assess how the UK economy will perform in the coming months."
