Webinar – Recruitment Landscape: Turbulent times but is it all doom and gloom?

In this webinar our panel of experts discuss the recruitment industry landscape for the next 12 months and provide practical tips.


Following the complete U-turn with the mini budget, confidence is low, everyone is feeling stretched, could we be heading towards a recession?

The speed of inflation is putting the economy in a precarious position with prices likely to continue to rise, the financial viability of organisations is potentially at risk. We’ve been here before with the financial crash in 2008 and more recently with the global pandemic – both completely different situations but requiring careful business planning, taking action and being agile to what lies ahead.

What lessons have we learned that we can bring into the next 12 months?

Watch this recording of our webinar that took place on 25th October 2022, where our panel of experts discuss the recruitment industry landscape for the next 12 months and providing practical tips on how you can shape your business for success.
