Permanent appointments expected to rise


Almost six out of ten companies surveyed by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation in September said they intended to hire more permanent staff between now and Christmas.

The latest JobsOutlook also reports a jump from 43% to 50% in the proportion of employers that expect their permanent headcount to increase over the next 4-12 months.

Employers continue to value agency workers, with nine out of ten planning to either maintain or increase their use of temps over the next year. The top three reasons given by employers for using agency staff are to manage peaks in demand, to cover leave or the short-term provision of a particular skill.

The JobsOutlook also found that:

  • In the next three months, 58% of bosses plan to increase their permanent workforce (up seven points from the previous month).
  • Looking further ahead over the next year, 50% of employers plan to increase their permanent workforce (also up seven points from September’s figures).
  • In the next three months over a third (36%) plan to increase their use of agency workers (up two points since last month).
  • 30% of employers plan to increase their use of agency workers over the next 4-12 months.
