THE JOBS market in Britain is continuing to recover, according to recruiter Robert Walters, which yesterday posted a 21 per cent jump in fees generated in the country.

Good growth in the resources sector, as well as signs of an upswing in the regions, were behind the surge in net fee income to £15.8m in the three months to the end of September, the firm said yesterday.

“The positive signs noted across some markets, which we highlighted in our recent half year results, have continued, albeit at a measured pace,” said Robert Walters, founder and chief executive.

Analysts at Investec said the firm’s update struck “a sensibly cautious tone”.

Global fees rose 10 per cent excluding currency movements to £51.9m, with double-digit growth in Asia Pacific outside of Australia, which continues to suffer from the commodities slowdown.
