“Now the City jobs market is beginning to return to the levels we enjoyed in 2007. The second half of 2009 and start of 2010 has seen rapid growth in the City. Banks have repaired their balance sheets through government aid or rights issues and commodity prices are rising.”

“Not only are we seeing this from increases in job volumes but also from the re-emergence of trends that tend to be indicative of a buoyant market. For example, there have been instances of talented professionals receiving multiple offers and increasing salary levels.”
