Onwards and Upwards

Posted on November 2, 2009 by


A few weeks ago I talked about a significant increase in job advertisements, suggesting we are starting the climb of recovery, out of recession.

At the start of last week we were told our economy is still contracting as we remain in the record breaking recession. Surprisingly, the FTSE did not buckle at the news.

At the end of last week and start of this week there are reports telling us the property market is growing for the first time in 19 months,http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/house-prices-record-first-annual-rise-in-19-months-1812311.html

I feel we are definitely on the road of recovery, a brief look in Google News this morning agrees….

As it is the first week in November we will be analysing the job advertisement data for October. I expect to reveal a positive headline showing continued recruitment improvement.
