Recruitment firm Hays has said its embattled UK division had returned to sales growth but that conditions remained "fragile" amid an ongoing clampdown on hiring in the City.

The group said that while third quarter net fees in the UK and Ireland were flat year-on-year, it had seen "modest" growth on the previous three months thanks to strong demand for temporary roles.
