Poll shows shock rise in City jobs
Jun 05 2012
The number of jobs created in the City of London increased by a surprising 25% last month, according to a new study.
Over 4,300 positions became available in May, well up on April, although still a third down on a year ago, said recruitment firm Astbury Marsden.
Mark Cameron, chief operating officer at Astbury Marsden said: "Although the eurozone crisis is a block to a stronger and more sustained recovery in the financial services sector we have still seen a gradual return of confidence amongst City employers.
"Sentiment has improved since the latter stages of 2011 but, to put this recent recovery in perspective, the jobs market is still far lower than this time last year.
"Given that the recent political deadlock in Greece and the banking crisis in Spain have made a swift resolution of the eurozone crisis less likely, this significant rise in the number of new jobs is a pleasant surprise for City staff."
