Covered in this report
The recruitment market saw a reduction in its rate of growth in 2019. This has been the result of economic uncertainty due to Brexit, in addition to rising trade tensions that have started to affect the global economy.
This uncertainty has also had a positive effect on some areas of the market, with a shift towards flexible working increasing demand for temporary employees, as businesses avoid substantial investment and hiring. The flexibility of temporary hiring allows businesses to expand and contract their labour costs in line with uncertain demand, and without the expenses associated with permanent employment

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Francesco Salau, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The recruitment industry has been set back by Brexit uncertainty and a weakening global economy.

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
