Last year was a challenging year for most businesses, 3 lockdowns and various tiers in place, and the uncertainty of whether we would achieve a post-Brexit deal with the EU.
Although we currently remain in lockdown, the significant rollout of the vaccination program means we will hopefully see a relaxation of restrictions around March. In addition, a deal has been agreed with the EU which now gives businesses a little more certainty going forward.
We hope many of our existing clients and candidates can take confidence from this as we are certainly seeing more positive signs. December was our best month in 2020 and the pipeline at the start of 2021 is as strong as it has been over the past 9 months.
No positions have been placed on hold or cancelled as a result of the latest lockdown. The demand for talent remains high as businesses discover and implement their new way of working.
Fundamentally, exceptional human resource is often scarcer than capital, and we work hard with clients to ensure they retain their talent as well as attract new colleagues to enhance the current state.
