Olympics to improve temporary jobs market

A new survey by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation suggests that the 2012 Olympics are likely to provide more job opportunities for contractors.

The Olympic Games will improve the temporary jobs market
The Olympic Games are likely to provide job opportunities for contractors, reveals a new survey by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

Over 30 per cent of companies anticipate increasing the number of agency workers in the next quarter.

Contractor umbrella company Tarpon welcomes the findings. “The role agency workers have played in setting up the Olympic facilities and ensuring they are ready on time for the event cannot be underestimated,” said a spokesperson for the company. “That businesses appreciate these efforts and are offering more work, is the greatest reward we could have wished for.”

A further 28 per cent of companies surveyed said that they are considering employing more agency workers in the next three to 12 months.

We expect that the knowledge and work experience that will result from the temporary contracts created for the duration of the games will contribute to employment in the future.
