Job vacancies at London’s financial-services companies jumped 18% in 2014 as firms accelerated hiring in the fourth quarter, according to a recruiter that tracks the industry.
Bloomberg News reports that the number of job openings in the Canary Wharf and City financial districts rose to 33,063 from 27,915 a year earlier, Astbury Marsden said in an e-mailed statement.
That was fuelled by a 22% jump in hiring in the final three months of 2014, the biggest increase since 2010.
'Better conditions in the City over the last year have enabled firms to spend more time thinking about modest growth, though what we are seeing is far from a return to the aggressive hiring seen before the financial crisis', said Adam Jackson, a managing director at Astbury Marsden.
