Financial services job opportunities at highest in six months

The number of newly available job roles in the financial services sector is at its highest in six months, new research suggests.

Morgan McKinley’s London Employment Monitor research shows that from March to April 2012, job opportunities in financial services rose from 4,965 to 5,440 – an increase of 19%.

Despite the findings, this is fall of 48% when compared to the same time last year.

Andrew Evans, Chief Operations Officer, Morgan McKinley, says: “Positive indicators like this don’t necessarily mean an end to a volatile hiring market. Although we haven’t seen this for a while, an increase in the spring months forms part of a fairly typical pattern in the traditional recruitment cycle.

“By the end of the year we may be able to point to a pattern of gradual improvement, but this is unlikely to come without further undulations in recruitment activity.”
