Good news for job seekers in the United Kingdom. The BDO just released a new study that reveals that hiring in the UK is greatly accelerating. The new numbers show that hiring plans by UK firms today are at their fastest rate in 16 years.

The new study shows that one reason for the increased hiring is more demand especially in the services industry.

Yet, not all is rosy on Britain’s job market. While hiring is picking up, some industry experts voice concern about a lack of skilled labour in the nation.

Peter Hemington of BDO in a public statement: “This could bring the stellar growth we’re enjoying in the wider economy to a grinding halt if the trend becomes entrenched. The Government must ensure its protectionist tendencies are put on hold until productivity returns to pre-crisis levels.”
