Job market revival?

15 July 2009
Perhaps it will come as no surprise that the procurement job market is under strain. It is indicative of a much wider trend and is tangible when you flick through most job sections in newspapers and magazines. This presents extreme challenges for those out of work and equally daunting frustrations for buyers looking to move on, or seeking promotion. But, as SM reported yesterday, there is positive sentiment in the market. Recruitment experts are predicting some form of recovery by the end of the year. Is this wishful thinking though? Cynics among you will claim it is a recruitment firm's aim to remain positive. Talk a good game and the rest will follow. What are your experiences in the procurement job market? Is a winter revival realistic?
