REC CEO comments on ONS report
Commenting on today’s employment figures from the Office for National Statistics that show a 155,000 rise in the number of people in employment, REC CEO Kevin Green says, “Today’s figures show more jobs being created and that both the recovery and business confidence are strengthening. This positive trend reflects the data we get from recruiters that shows the jobs market continues to pick up momentum.
“New employment minister Esther McVey points out the importance of flexible working in the labour market with more than 4 out of 5 of people with part-time jobs choosing to work in this way. It’s important that politicians from all the major parties don't undermine our dynamic flexible jobs market with more regulation as our labour market starts to lift off.”
