there is no doubt that the current climate is far from ideal

Following the announcement that Theresa May will stand down as Prime Minister on the 7th of June, Ann Swain, Chief Executive of the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) commented:

“The irony that the PM is stepping down almost two years to the day that she held a General Election to put an end to ‘uncertainty and instability’ will not be lost on our members. While I think it is fair to say that many, if not all, have now reverted to ‘business as usual’ during this extended period of flux, there is no doubt that the current climate is far from ideal.

“While the professional end of the recruitment market may not be as exposed to the same potential post-Brexit risks as those recruiting for lower skilled roles, it is crucial that future strategy remains focused on attracting the talent our country needs, as outlined in this year’s Spring Statement. The City, in particular, is facing challenges around both workforce planning and recruitment against the current backdrop, and the present climate is also holding back some companies from setting up or expending in Europe at this time.

“It is our hope that whoever May’s successor will be is determined to put the interests of the UK economy ahead of their personal ambitions, so that the professional recruitment community can leave this period of uncertainty behind and concentrate on growing their businesses in a more stable climate.”
