Commerce & Industry

The Midlands continues to play a key role in the UK economy with the region’s manufacturing sector representing 22% of total output. A successful bid on the 2022 Commonwealth Games has meant significant investment in terms of construction and infrastructure and HS2 is soon to become a reality, allowing passengers to travel to London in 38 minutes.Business is booming in the Midlands and the doors are open. Securing talent will no doubt be high on the agenda for many firms who are relocating or looking to grow.

Specialist Markets

The specialist markets division in the Midlands remains candidate driven and fiercely competitive, with high calibre candidates across all levels and practices remaining scarce. We are seeing positive market indicators for the future – firms that were not hiring in H2 last year have kick started their hiring processes and are creating roles again.

Executive & Interim

Despite the economic and political uncertainty created by Brexit, the Midlands market has experienced an increase in hiring activity this year. Investment in infrastructure and businesses either relocating or opening new offices in the region has certainly created more opportunities and is helping to attract talent from other areas of the UK. We expect the executive & interim market to keep going from strength to strength as more businesses lose permanent staff to the interim market.
