Description

“The recruitment industry has been set back by Brexit uncertainty and a weakening global economy. These factors have reduced the rate of growth, but also increased demand for flexible temporary labour. Combined with the ubiquity of computing and the internet, a continuing influx of new SMEs are driving competition and fostering the growth of innovative platforms that take advantage of these trends in technology and the labour market.”
– Francesco Salau, B2B Analyst
