Job security in UK public sector

The Financial Times reported yesterday that equal numbers of public sector employers expect to cut and increase staff over the next year.

More than 40 per cent of employers surveyed at the end of last year said that one or more of their vacancies attracted not a single candidate. In the public sector the figure rose to 60 per cent.
