The impact of this result on both the permanent and flexible labour markets has the potential to be significant

Commenting on the unexpected result of the UK General Election, Samantha Hurley, Director of Operations at The association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), comments;

“It seems that Theresa May’s gamble on calling a snap election hasn’t paid off and it is unfortunate that this result does not offer the level of stability that the UK desperately needs. In light of this uncertainty, the next Government should be especially careful to avoid knee jerk changes to taxation, employment regulation or visa controls associated with our exit from the EU.”

“The impact of this result on both the permanent and flexible labour markets has the potential to be significant. Ever since the phrase ‘gig economy’ was coined, media attention has consistently focused on lower skilled and lower paid workers and we are absolutely determined to ensure that the new Government recognises that professional independent flexible talent is not only a completely distinctive group within the gig economy but that it also has a critical role to play in the future success of the UK plc. We hope the new administration will be open to working closely with us to ensure collateral damage is kept to a minimum.”
