‘VOTE' FOR BROWN, CLEGG AND CAMERON'S NEXT JOBS

Recruitment consultancy Badenoch & Clark has launched a campaign to get the public to vote for Gordon Brown's next job, should he fail to win the election. People are being invited to vote for whether Brown should become an author, university lecturer or even launch an anger-management consultancy. Suggestions for David Cameron include becoming the editor of the Daily Mail or going back to his PR roots and setting up Cameron Communications. Nick Clegg has been tipped to become a children's TV presenter or work for a charity.


CASH BOOST FOR SCOTTISH JOBS

The Scottish jobs market looks set to receive a boost after the Scottish Government awarded £7m of grants to firms. The grants, awarded to 24 businesses under the Regional Selective Assistance scheme, will lead to 534 new jobs in Scotland and safeguard a further 283 posts. Around £4.5m of the funding will go to manufacturing firms.


PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS ONTHE UP, BUT PUBLIC SECTOR PROSPECTS BLEAK

Job prospects in the private sector look set to grow but the picture is bleak for the public sector, latest figures show. According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)/KPMG Labour Market Outlook survey, carried out in March, private sector employers are optimistic about creating jobs over the next three months. But their public sector counterparts are ‘radically more pessimistic' about employment intentions compared with three months ago.
