The Eurozone crisis, the availability of mortgages, the tail end of a double-dip recession in addition to the one-off events of the Jubilee celebrations and the Olympics, meant that 2012 was a challenging year for the property market. Towards the end of 2012 the UK officially came out of recession however we still have a long way to go. Sustained growth is what is required and only then; will we see substantial drops in unemployment numbers. Nevertheless, things are moving in the right direction and a survey of UK employers carried out by Manpower, suggests that 6% of all UK firms are looking to recruit in the first quarter of 2013, which is up on the recent years of recession.
