There can be no denying that the uncertainty created by Brexit and the General Election in December affected confidence in the UK economy. Businesses were reluctant to invest whilst people who might have been considering a career move very much adopted a “wait and see” approach. Regardless of your political persuasions, the result from December 12th has at least given some certainty to proceedings, as evidenced by the strong performance of Sterling versus both the Euro and the Dollar since the outcome became clear. Hewett Recruitment are already beginning to see this feed through into client and candidate activity too, with a number of companies registering new roles before the Christmas break, no doubt hoping to get a jump on the competition in the New Year…whilst job applications received have notably increased this week.
If you or your business are ready to tap into this newfound confidence then please do get in touch and one of our team of Consultants from the relevant specialist division can help – contact ben@hewett-recruitment.
