Labour Market Outlook




"Taken as a whole, the data suggests that employment prospects will continue
to improve in all sectors of the economy in the second quarter of 2014."



The quarterly Labour Market Outlook aims to offer an early indication of future changes to the labour market around recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions.

The Spring survey shows that near-term employment prospects have risen to a six-and-a-half-year high. This quarter’s net employment balance has also increased since the winter 2013–14 report and this is the highest net balance score since autumn 2007.
