  • (1888PressRelease) February 01, 2011 - Paula Reed, managing director of, the international job board talking about the UK job market, said in Loughborough yesterday:

    'Over the last fifteen years the financial services sector has outpaced other industries in terms of contribution to the UK's GDP. It currently generates approximately 40% of total GDP and usually, at the start of any New Year, we have come to expect a surge in the number of job vacancies. This year, no one knew for sure what would happen, but I'm pleased to say that everyone, including the doom and gloom merchants have been left open-mouthed.'

    Ms Reed continued, 'if you add the number of supportive roles like IT, HR and Legal that are employed in the sector, I believe this surge sends a refreshing message to everyone that we're starting to emerge from the recession. The fourth quarter of 2010 showed a slow, but steady growth in Financial Sector jobs, but January has made all of us sit up and take notice. At we saw an increase of nearly 22% over the previous month.'

    'I would like to think that our New Year offer contributed to this increase in advertised jobs, said Ms Reed, I'm sure it encouraged some recruiters to try our services but my colleagues in the industry have indicated that they too have seen an increase so either way, it's great news all round.'

    Ms Reed went on, 'being a niche job board and operating exclusively in the financial sector, has given us the flexibility to make some dramatic changes to our advertising rates. We have always thought that the small recruiter was at a disadvantage, so we decided to try to level the playing field. Now, all our clients, irrespective of their size, can advertise all their vacancies for less than what it can cost to advertise just one job vacancy.

    We may have ruffled a few feathers, but we genuinely believed it was time to do something that would help everyone in our industry to have a better New Year. We're also delighted that the offer also benefits our jobseekers, they now have an even greater choice in career opportunities.' For more information please visit:
