Due to the Brexit, firms in the United Kingdom are looking for better prospects as many concentrate their services outside Britain.
Several companies are now positioning themselves carefully to avoid any legal difficulty possibly brought about by the Brexit. According to global recruitment consultants who published its latest employment monitor, middle and back office roles within the financial industry had increased.
“We have yet to see any dramatic change in hiring post-Brexit. The outcome of the UK referendum is however likely to require a recalibration of hiring forecasts and skill sets for certain employers depending on their sector, size and specialisation,” said Karen O’flaherty, Morgan McKinley’s Chief Operations Officer in Ireland.
“At the moment this might be more in an advisory capacity. The significant likelihood is that going into the latter part of this year and into next, we would imagine there would be a lift in employment in this area.”
Compliance, risk and tax experts are in high demand within the finance department along with newly-qualified accountants. Many SMEs are considering a careful approach to hiring.
The new “blooed” need to have new skill sets in coping up with big data, technology and other digital roles.
The pharma, medical devices and IT sectors were the top-performing sectors in relation to hiring activity this month.
