BMW to Create 1,000 New Jobs in the UK by the end of 2016
A two-year deal up to and including the 2016 European Championship in France is to be offered to the 67-year-old, who will return for a second spell in charge of the Dutch side. “I am neither confirming nor denying anything,” said Bert van Oostveen, who is the director in charge of Dutch national teams at the country’s football association (KNVB). “That is something we never do when it comes to questions like this,” he told the Dutch NOS television on Tuesday. “Everyone must wait for the facts. We will announce a successor to Van Gaal once he is in place.” Hiddink, however, has confirmed to Dutch media he met with KNVB at his home in Amsterdam last month. He said a contract would be discussed once he returned from a Christmas holiday trip to Africa. He was the Dutch coach from 1995 until their semi-final defeat at the World Cup in France in 1998.

British police tell Romanians ‘don’t come without jobs’
A report, On The Up, based on responses from 325 organisations employing more than a million people, found that just over half expected their workforce to be larger in 12 months’ time. Employers in Yorkshire and Humberside and the East Midlands were most buoyant. The survey also revealed a continued cautious approach to pay, with more than a third of those polled planning a wage rise below RPI inflation and only 7% expecting to pay more. Virtually all the companies questioned said flexible employment patterns such as the use of agency workers, or zero hours contracts, were vital or important to the economy. Four out of five firms said they expected new job opportunities to open up for young people in the coming year.

Job prospects looking brighter
With plants in Oxford (where the new MINI is being built), Swindon, Hams Hall and West Sussex and Goodwood (where Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is set up) the new jobs were bound to show up at one point or another. According to Inautonews.com the first recruiting phase will start around New Year 2014 to cover about 700 people, with the ones that are currently on temporary contracts being given priority. The remaining 300 jobs will be opened up until the end of 2016. These are encouraging signs for the British car industry as the UK car output grew 17 percent in November compared to the same month of 2012, causing analysts to claim that the industry is on the rise again on the island. An important part of this rise was the MINI production and its sales that remained constant and even posted impressive growth on some markets, breaking long-standing records.

Flexible employment at the heart of UK job creation, finds Accenture-CBI study
Business leaders say coping with fluctuation in demand is the top reason to use flexible work (according to 87% of respondents), ahead of responding rapidly to opportunities (81%) as well as being a stepping stone into work for those vulnerable long-term unemployed (58%) and allowing choice for workers (65%). Businesses view the biggest current threats to UK labour market flexibility as employment regulations (68%), with 79% saying that if the UK were to lose its European Working Time regulations opt-out, there would be a negative effect. The CBI/Accenture Employment Trends Survey, available online , also shows 51% of companies expect their workforce to be larger in 12 months time. This is the first time that more companies expect to create jobs than do not expect to since the start of recession in 2008. The East Midlands and Yorkshire & Humberside regions are the two tipped for top jobs growth. The survey also shows that permanent job growth is expected to be stronger than temp hiring, and that there will be increasing opportunities for young people to find work through apprenticeships and graduate recruitment. CBI chief policy director Katja Hall commets: Its good to see jobs being created across most regions, not just London and the South-East.
