Contractors within an umbrella company could see more work coming their way in the coming months.
According to the latest JobsOutlook survey from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), businesses are planning to increase their workforce within the next year.
It found that 41 per cent of the 600 employers they surveyed want to increase the number of agency workers they are using, which is two per cent more than those that said this last month. Meanwhile only eight per cent said they want to reduce their workforce.
This increase in enthusiasm to hire could be as a result of improved business prospects within the UK.
Certainly, recent economic changes suggest that there is room for growth in the country.
Inflation has fallen to 2.4 per cent, which means that it should be easier for businesses to sell in the coming months.
David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce, said: "We believe that the economy needs a period of falling inflation so that domestic demand can stabilise as exporters are hampered by global challenges."
