Alistair Cox, the chief executive of Hays, features in the FT today, saying some not very nice things about the City jobs market.

Hot on the tracks of Morgan McKinley’s comparatively upbeat report on City jobs in May, Cox is keen to stamp out green shoots of optimism before they turn into widespread cheerfulness. "It’s still a brutal job market in most countries in the world. There’s no clear sign we’re past the worst,” he tells the FT. And regarding City employment in particular: “Those jobs have gone and they’re not coming back any time soon.”
