Business sector recruiting more than any other

Business man    Mish SukharevAccording to a new study, the business sector is recruiting more than any other industry, says The Grapevine.

Barclay Meade’s Tracking UK Recruitment report has suggested that over half of businesses in the sector are recruiting at above pre-recession levels. The actual figure is 56% which is an increase from 48% in the previous quarter.

It is also interesting that recruitment freezes in the business centre have fallen to 10%, which is the lowest of all the industry sectors.

Nigel Lynn, Managing Director at Barclay Meade, told The Grapevine: “While recruitment in many industry sectors has stagnated in recent months, the business services sector has shown greater resilience to waning business confidence.”

There are, however, fears of a double-dip recession, which have risen. Now, 33% are saying that it will be a barrier to recruitment as opposed to 23% in Q2 2011.

Lynn went on to say: “Looking forward, the wider UK economy will rely heavily on sectors demonstrating growth and resilience, and businesses services may be one of those bright spots, driving economic revival and growth.

“Either way, more still needs to be done to ensure the recruitment industry is catering for the specific needs of the business services sector and doing everything it can to support managers by delivering the right candidates for the right positions at the right time.”
