Umbrella Contractor Tarpon have been encouraged by new research released by the specialist recruitment company Marks Sattin. It was revealed that salaries amongst financial services professionals rose by 8% during last year, and are predicted to rise by a further 13.5% this year.

Managing Director of Marks Sattin, Dave Way, said that the recession had had a negative effect on salary increases last year as employers looked to balance their deficits. If such trends were to continue into 2011, he explained, we are looking at similar rises (8.5 per cent), however, there are signs of optimism amongst professionals in the sector that business will pick up.

Mr Way added a cautionary note, however, and suggested that any hopes of a salary rise of 13.5% may be “over optimistic.”

Hays plc, the global specialist recruiting firm, has called on governments and industries across the world to take joined-up action to tackle the looming threat of increased global unemployment as the world’s working population is set to increase dramatically. With many countries already at record levels of unemployment, co-ordinated action needs to be taken now to avert future labour crises as significantly more people are set to join the global labour force. To this end Hays has developed a Five Point Plan.

Hays, which placed more than 230,000 people in work across 30 countries in 2010, has published a seminal report; Creating Jobs in a Global Economy, compiled in partnership with economic forecaster, Oxford Economics, illustrating the challenges ahead for employers, employees and governments across the world.

The report forecasts the dramatic movements of workforce, power and wealth across the globe over the next 20 years. The world’s working-age population is expected to increase by over a billion people in this timeframe. However, all of this growth will be developing economies. The developed world will see its workforce shrink and age.

Since the start of the global recession in 2008, consumers have become more and more frugal with how they spend their money and approach their finances as a whole. Redirecting funds from high end or luxury products such as property and cars, consumers have begun to avidly protect their savings as well as shop around for better deals on other financial products.

It’s no surprise – with an increase in market activity – that life insurance premiums are the lowest they’ve ever been with prices gradually dipping over the last ten years. With insurance providers across the board offering competitive deals whilst attempting to stave off the recession themselves, it would seem the arrival of QuoteBoffin.co.uk couldn’t have come at a better time.
