Eurozone troubles hit recruitment, despite increased business optimism
Anxiety about the ongoing uncertainty in the eurozone is causing recruiters in London to halt their recruitment plans, despite overall business optimism being higher than six months ago.
The latest London Business Survey, carried out by the CBI and professional services firm KPMG, polled 264 companies in the capital.
Four respondents in 10 (41%) said that they feel more optimistic about economic prospects for the next six months. When the survey was last carried out, in December 2011, that figure stood at just 13%.
