According to the Office for National Statistics, between July and September 2010, the UK unemployment rate dropped by 9,000 people – a figure which shows a more positive outlook in the economy and which should provide encouragement for UK contractors, especially in finance, IT and hospitality. Commenting on the new figures, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation said it was positive that fewer people were unemployed, adding, β€œThe slowly improving outlook for the jobs market fits with the feedback from recruitment professionals, who are reporting increased hiring activity in a number of sectors such as financial services, IT and hospitality.”
