The back-end of 2011 was a tough time for contract roles in the UK, with most agencies
reporting a continued decline in placements.
However the new year brings a new quarter and
from Oncore’s perspective, we have seen consultants picking up contracts with relative ease
compared to last year, especially in the IT and Finance markets.
There's added optimism for a promising start to the year for the UK job market with the
transport secretary approving plans for the High Speed Two (HS2) rail network. The project is
expected to create a massive 60,000 new jobs.
The London Olympics and Queen's Jubilee this year is also something to look forward to
offering a strong boost to tourism and the general buzz of London, and something well worth
being a part of.
