An increase in opportunities for those on the lookout for pharmaceutical vacancies
may occur in the coming months, according to industry trends.
The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has published its June JobsOutlook report, revealing a net positive balance of nine per cent in terms of short-term demand for permanent staff among UK companies.
Other positive indicators included a drop of six percentage points in employers looking to implement a headcount freeze, while one in three companies is planning to grow their temporary workforce.
Roger Tweedy, the REC's director of research, also highlighted Gfk NOP data which shows that up to six million workers are planning to change jobs, implying greater fluidity in employment.
He said: "There are increasingly positive signs of a gradual upturn in employers' hiring intentions, probably linked to greater post-election stability and a feeling that a Conservative government is likely to be best for future job creation."
This comes after the REC and KPMG published a report earlier this month indicating a rise in permanent staff placements for the tenth consecutive month in May 2010.
