Is The Financial Services Market Recovering?

The financial services sector was particularly hit hard during the recent recession. Not a big surprise really considering the almost total collapse of the banking sector! Recruitment was on a very tight leash throughout 2008 and 2009 with 2010 fairing only a little better towards the end. It would seem that in 2011 however most experts are predicting a return to better times and the prospects for contractors willing to be flexible, in the financial services market are looking much better.

Of course it is easy for experts to make predictions but one report does seem to have backed it up what most predict. The highly regarded London Employment Monitor report found that there was an 11% improvement in in financial services opportunities just for the period of March 2011. We’ll have to see how the rest of the year pans out but growth anywhere near that level would surely be welcomed by the many people who have been suffering badly for the past few years. Of course the opportunites may be there but it still doesn’t take into account how good those opportunites are.

We’d like to know what you think though. Do you work in the financial services market, have you seen an improvement in the number of job opportunites?
