As a news report on the matter suggests, 56% of organisations participating in the poll are currently looking to hire at a managerial and professional level, candidates with experience in agriculture, education, energy, law, pharmaceuticals and utilities being in particularly high-demand.

Other areas with a shortage of personnel include basic materials, security services and defence.

Roy Simpson, Antal Managing Partner, comments: “We’re starting to see the recovery has an impact on business plans to hire, with more than half of firms boosting staff numbers next year.

“It’s good to see jobs being created across most regions, not just London and the south-east, as the private sector workforce looks set to grow across the board, with Yorkshire, Humberside and the East Midlands the most buoyant.”
