Select Appointments wants the government to be bold and ambitious and come good on its promises to invest in the economy and create more jobs

Select Appointments, one of the UK’s leading staffing companies and recruitment franchisors, has urged the new government to keep its promises to invest in the economy and boost the job sector after its majority victory in the General Election.

Official figures just released show that the total number of people in work rose to 31.1 million in the last quarter, and that average pay excluding bonuses rose by 2.2%. The technology sector in particular is booming, it saw its biggest ever surge in hiring over the last three months.

Unemployment also continued to fall to 1.83 million, 35,000 down from the previous quarter and the lowest for seven years.

Prior to the election David Cameron promised to create 1000 new jobs a day over the next parliamentary term if they are re-elected.

“There were promises made by the new government, prior to winning the election, of building a  stronger more sustainable economy, which of course should lead to more jobs,” explains Graeme McKinnon, managing director of Select Appointments.

“The jobs market is currently in a very good position. Employers are forecasting more investment and further growth, particularly in the private sector, but this can change quickly. Further investment is needed to keep it on the right track.”

Select Appointments is a leading recruitment franchise network and is seeking ambitious individuals to join them as franchise owners with opportunities available throughout the UK. For further details about becoming a Select Appointment franchise owner please contact us today
