More than eight of out ten (82 per cent) new jobs will be at junior, middle management or skilled labour, the survey said.Meanwhile, the City is seeing a strong return to confidence, yet worries persists over increased regulation and taxes, according to a small survey by consultants Smith and Williamson, also released yesterday. Four out of five respondents expect business prospects to improve or stabilise — yet two thirds believe regulation will restrict their businesses, its survey found.
