US recruitment firm Robert Half continued to grow in the fourth quarter of 2015, buoyed by the booming US jobs market and a better outlook in its international markets.

The firm, which has a UK office in the Shard, said net income rose 11.2 per cent to $93.4m (£64.8m) in the three months ended December 31, from $84m a year earlier.

This was on net service revenues rising 6.6 per cent to $1.3bn during this period, compared to $1.22bn in the last quarter of 2014.

Harold Messmer, chairman and chief executive of Robert Half, said: "Demand for our professional staffing and consulting services remained strong in the fourth quarter, fuelled by a healthy US job market and low unemployment in numerous professional occupations, as well as a more positive economic backdrop in many of our non-US markets."

"We saw year-over-year revenue growth across the board in our staffing and consulting operations, both in the United States and abroad."
