Some good news on jobs, but what does it mean?

08 Feb 2012, by in Labour market

I have a post at Left Foot Forward, looking at today’s Report on Jobs from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (the trade body for employment agencies). There was a “modest” increase in placements by employment agencies in January – but it’s the first improvement for four months, so it’s quite good news. Unfortunately, as I show, we’ll need much stronger growth before unemployment begins to fall.
