Jobs in the UK
Hiring activity in the UK is low, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.
The survey of 2,103 UK employers found the first quarter Net Employment Outlook has fallen from 0% in 2011 to -2% in 2012. This means that for every 100 employers, two more employers are planning to lose workers rather than hire them. This weak employment outlook indicates few opportunities should be available to job hunters.
