Transport employers hiring ahead of Christmas surge, survey suggests

The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey has indicated that transport employers are looking to significantly increase their staffing levels ahead of the Christmas rush. 

Simon Edwards, operations director at Manpower, highlighted how many companies were criticised for the last year’s backlog of deliveries caused by Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount events.

The survey suggests hiring will increase by five per cent in the final months of 2015. The figures are seven percentage points greater than those forecast for the third quarter of this year.
