The Procurement Market Update Q2 2016 – BREXIT SPECIAL

Click the headline to read the full report.

We are pleased to share our latest quarterly report on the recruitment market conditions for the procurement profession and the procurement solutions sector in the UK and Europe.

As usual, we asses the trends that we have observed during the past three months in the markets we focus on, but on this occasion there is also significant coverage of the impact of the recent EU referendum. We have spent the past fortnight gathering the opinions of senior managers from across the profession as well as understanding the thoughts of many of the EU citizens in our network. We also offer our own opinions on the impact so far along with our hopes and concerns for the future.

As the political and economic impact of the changes develop each day, we believe it would be useful for everyone in the sector to share their opinions. We have created this post on Linked In for your reactions to this report and opinions on related topics. Please do take the time to contribute to what we hope will be an insightful debate.

The Value Of Experience

Our Directors are well educated, professional, career recruiters with vast experience in their respective markets. They are hands on consultants, involved in every appointment our business makes, ensuring we deliver to the highest standards. We reject the traditional high pressure recruitment agency approach that has been unpopular for so long favouring long term credibility over short term commercial gain. We are truly professional Consultants in Executive Recruitment and differentiate ourselves through the quality of the advice we offer our clients.
