Almost 40% of employers will increase business support headcount says new report

Over half of employers will keep their permanent hiring of business support professionals at the same level and 39% will increase headcount during 2009. That’s according to the 2009 market report and salary survey just released by secretarial and business support recruiter Crone Cor****.

Aditionally, while general market data is predicting a downturn in temporary hiring overall, the report says that evolving legislative changes around flexible working practices will continue to impact on hiring demand.

“Maternity leave, for example, is often a big driver of temporary demand,” says Tracy Durrant, Managing Director of Crone Cor****. “And with maternity and paternity leave rights becoming more generous, we would expect this to be a continuing trend throughout 2009.”

Other key findings from the report which surveyed employers across the commerce, industry, financial services and not for profit sectors included:

- Languages in high demand as organisations become more internationally focused
- An emerging trend towards the Team PA driven by challenging market conditions

- A trend towards longer term temporary contracts
- Legal Secretaries now much more involved in client facing duties such as events and marketing

- Over 20% of employers reported a shortage of receptionists and top level Executive Assistants
- 15% of employers said that they had plans to increase recruitment from overseas during 2009
