CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK THE JOB MARKET IS PICKING UP?

PAUL HAINES | RK HARRISON
“No, I really don't think that the market is picking up. I don’t see a lot of new people coming into the office for new positions. I also don’t think that this will change in the near future. It may stay like this for the next six months to a year.”

ANDREW MORRIS | MARSH HAMMOND
“The department I work in is actually experiencing the opposite of a pick up. But on the news, it says that employment is getting better and that there may be a kick-start effect happening in the market. I have friends who were unemployed for a long time who have gone back to work, so this may be the case.”

MARK GILHAWLEY | BOYDEN GROUP
“In my industry, the job market isn’t really picking up. There are certain large schemes, however, that are getting approval so perhaps in these sectors the employment market will pick up. Lots of companies have made cuts in the last year, so it is going to take a while to get back to a good point.”
