As the economy continues to make progress towards recovery, there are a number of sectors showing more confidence than others, as evidenced by research carried out by the Confederation of Business Industry (CBI) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC).
Looking specifically at the financial sector, their figures showed that nearly four in ten financial services firms had increased their head count in the first quarter of 2014. Additionally almost half of those surveyed expected employment to continue to rise strongly in the next quarter.
This is great news for those experienced in the sector, particularly given that a number of organisations are raising concerns about a potential shortage of skilled staff. For those who are looking for new opportunities, there is further good news as separate research carried out by recruiter Ranstad indicates that the feeling of job security in the sector is high, with only 17% of financial services professionals surveyed saying they felt worried about losing their job.
Here at The Recruiter Group, we are delighted to be working with this sector, in addition to several others. Our team are experienced in assessing the needs of both client and candidate to ensure that the right person is placed in the right role.
