FINANCIAL firms are taking on more short term workers, in an encouraging sign for jobs activity in the sector, according to the boss of the world’s second-biggest recruiter.

“Activity in the City is not for permanent placements, but there are a lot of projects going on. We usually see that over time resulting in permanent jobs also,” Randstad chief exec Ben Noteboom told City A.M.

The group’s global revenues fell five per cent to €4.1bn in the quarter.
