Industry sectors. Employers in all 13 national industry sectors forecast an increase in payrolls during the second quarter.

The other four per cent are unsure of their hiring intentions. Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry & Fishing sector employers report the strongest hiring intentions with a hopeful Net Employment Outlook of +17%.

Rocca said once seasonal variations were removed from the data, there is a one per cent increase in hiring.

Hiring intentions outside of London are increasingly conservative heading into Spring nearly across the board, including the East (down nine points to +3%), Wales (down nine points to 0%), the South West (down seven points to +1%) and North East (down five points to 0%).
