New recruitment hinges on upturn

Collapsed retailer Peacocks is moving in on new ownership after administrators were swamped with interest in all or part of the business.

Roger Tweedy, from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation who carried out the survey on 600 firms, said: "Most employers have retrenched to a much more cautious wait and see approach."
