With economic optimism growing the next 12 months will see employers launch aggressive strate-gies to recruit the best talent to their organisations and that is likely to lead to a rise in salaries, ac-cording to one expert.
Dave Fleming, sales director at Badenoch and Clark, said that with more firms looking to boost staff numbers over the coming months, the job prospects for many look bright and this will be supported by higher salaries.
He stated that "salary inflation" will come as a direct result of employers looking to recruit the most talented individuals and that this will be good for those looking to secure another job in the first six months of the year.
"Many employers are searching harder than ever before for talent - and as competition for talent increases, demand is likely to rise accordingly," Mr Fleming went on to add.
According to the January's REC/KPMG Report on Jobs, although average salaries for permanent staff continued to rise in January, the rate of inflation eased slightly since December and remained below the survey's long-run trend.
