s, job placements continue to rise, highlighting a revival in the labour market, new figures show.
The number of people being placed in permanent jobs by recruiters continues to rise, according to the latest statistics published by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG.
Vacancies for permanent and temporary jobs continued to increase last month as a snap shot of 400 recruitment firms through the Report on Jobs revealed the availability of staff also increased.
Kevin Green, the REC's chief executive, said: "The report highlights continued growth in both temporary and permanent employment, although the rate of growth has slowed slightly compared to previous months.
He went on to add that nurturing "the slowly improving but fragile jobs market" will be the first test of whoever takes over government after the general election.

I can see why many of the unemployed are interested in "spreading the wealth" and quite a few would be eager for a direct check written from the US Treasury - but we simply can not afford it.

agenda of the next president, whoever he is.
John McCain and Barack Obama have fundamental differences on how to do that. McCain emphasizes the role that low tax rates play in economic growth, while Obama thinks government investments in targeted areas, such as alternative energy and the creation of new businesses, are important.
Both, however, will be constrained by fiscal realities -- the ballooning federal deficit and the still-uncertain cost of the nation's financial crisis. They may have to drop or defer large chunks of their agenda.
For businesses, one thing seems clear: Companies will face more government regulation. Both candidates are "likely to be big regulators," said Veronique de Rugy, senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
This report looks at how the outcome of the election could affect small businesses in four key areas: taxes, health care, energy and the rules governing union organizing.
John McCain claims Barack Obama wants to raise taxes on small businesses.
That is true if the business owner makes more than $200,000 a year (or $250,000 per family). Obama has proposed increasing personal income tax rates for the top two income brackets to what they were during the Clinton administration: 36 percent and 39.6 percent.
