Construction Engineering Workers on Demand
Overall, the survey, which is co-produced by KPMG, showed that companies are spending more on hiring permanent employees as opposed to part-time employment.
However, the highest increase in hiring full-time employees has been in the construction engineering sector which hired more people due to recent infrastructure projects and the substantial government investment into such projects.
The survey also reported that the rise in full-time recruitment was linked to higher client activity as well as the government’s commitment to cut red tape for small and medium businesses.
Head of business services at KPMG, Bernard Brown, welcomed the positive findings of the survey explaining that the rise of demand in permanent staff suggest the economy is recovering from the financial crises at 2008.
Mr Brown said: “There are signs within some industries that things are looking up. Amongst the engineering, construction and IT sectors demand for permanent staff has increased since the turn of the year. With so much attention being paid to these sectors at the moment, close attention should be paid to see if this is a trend set to continue as the year progresses.”
