The Association of Professional Staffing Companies APSCo, has launched its very first In the Round regional roadshow: a series of events for recruitment leaders across the UK. In response to the increasing burden of legislation and uncertainty around Brexit, the free ‘In the Round’ experiences, sponsored by Barclays, are designed to help businesses to take control and drive their own success.

The intimate events, led by APSCo’s very own CEO, Ann Swain, will take place between November 2018 and March 2019, with the series designed to focus on growth, explore market trends, and look at how to capitalise on current opportunities in the recruitment market.

With an abundance of knowledge and experience within the sector, the series of ‘In the Round’ meetings will see Ann providing delegates with new insight and practical information as she works with them to overcome hurdles and prepare for the future as the UK enters a period of unrivalled change.

Ann recently received the prestigious Leadership Award from the Trade Association Forum and she currently features in the SIA ‘Global Power 50’ list of the most influential women in international recruitment.

Commenting on the launch, APSCo CEO Ann Swain says:

“We are undoubtedly entering a new phase within the labour market and as Brexit uncertainty continues to cause a ripple effect across the professional recruitment sector, we must take necessary action. With a lack of clarity around the future status, it is crucial leaders work together to plan ahead pre-empting possible situations so that we can adapt and flex in response to demand.”

“I am delighted to have this opportunity to speak with our members up and down the UK to share APSCo’s latest market insight and research data and to listen to local recruiter’s views and concerns at an important time for the country. A successful business relies on an appetite for both hard work and effective strategy, and I look forward to meeting with all attendees and sharing the vast amount of insight APSCo has.”
