Companies plan to recruit more in next few months

A survey of employers' recruitment plans has found that the UK labour market is strengthening after a wobble during the general election. More than two thirds of the 600 companies surveyed this month by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation said they planned to hire more permanent staff in the next three months – up from 63% in June and 62% in May. Some 80% of employers thought the economy was improving, and 96% said they had 'no' or 'only a little' ability to cope with any extra demand. They continued to complain about skills shortages in some areas.
