UK recruiters expect continued expansion in the labour market during 2013, it has been revealed.

A new study conducted by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) reveals that 99 per cent of organisations plan to either increase or maintain their permanent staff in 2013.

In addition, 88 per cent are intending to hire more temporary workers next year in a bid to support their growth plans.

Over the coming three months, 55 per cent said they would be hiring additional permanent staff, and 53 per cent said they would recruit more temporary workers.

As such, skilled professionals may find themselves in greater demand during the January to March 2013 period.

Some 86 per cent of employers said they are planning to increase (30 per cent) or maintain (56 per cent) their use of agency worker numbers in the next quarter.

And 88 per cent said they will increase (26 per cent) or maintain (62 per cent) their use of agency workers over the next 12 months.

Just one in 25 employers is looking to reduce permanent headcount in the first quarter of 2013, the REC study indicated.

Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said there are encouraging signs for jobs growth in 2013.

"Based on the feedback from both employers and recruiters it looks like employer confidence is genuinely bouncing back," he stated.

"Even though the wider economic outlook may still be uncertain and growth forecasts have been revised downwards, the resilience of this country’s labour market cannot be in doubt."

Mr Green said the flexibility within the UK labour market means it has not been hit by the same difficulties as other European nations.

And as such, job growth is set to continue in the new year.
