2015 Set to be a Bumper Year for Recruitment

47% of HR directors plan to expand hiring, with their companies set to add new positions, in the first six months of 2015 according to the latest Professional Hiring Index from Robert Half UK.

The research proves that the labour market has firmly shifted into a post-recessionary cycle where professionals with marketable skills hold the advantage as candidate demand outweighs supply.

The Index revealed that only four per cent of HR executives think their company will reduce their overall headcount over the period and eight per cent that their company will introduce a freeze on hiring in the next six months, by not filling vacant positions or creating new ones.

HR directors representing public sector bodies are only slightly less confident than their private sector counterparts about increasing employment levels in the first half of 2015, despite calls for ongoing austerity measures.
