Nov 23 (Reuters) - British recruiting firm SThree Plc on Monday
projected annual profit to be slightly above market expectations on improved
hiring in the United States and Germany, with a high demand for professionals in
life sciences and technology.
The company said it observed the overseas improvement through October and
early November, sending shares up 2.8% in early trading.
Most global recruiters have been hit by a hiring slowdown due to COVID-19
lockdowns imposed by many governments across the world, and SThree has been
among the first to flag an upturn to its business.
SThree, which operates in 16 countries, said in September its underlying
sequential performance was improving since the first half of the year, even as
it reported lower net fees for the third quarter.
